PwC offer £5,000 bursary for Business Masters programme at Coleraine university

Business graduates applying for this year’s Masters in Applied Management at the Ulster Business School have the opportunity to study for free thanks to a bursary provided by PwC.

Worth over £5,300 the bursary will cover all course fees at the University’s Coleraine Campus as well as travel and residential expenses for the international module held at the University of Kempten in Germany.

Professor Audrey Gilmore, Course Lecturer, explains: “Core management skills are valuable resources within any organisation and are highly sought after by employers in both private and public sectors. The MSc in Applied Management provided by our Business, Retail and Financial Services department gives students a strong appreciation of the application of key management principles in practice.

“Of particular interest is the opportunity to gain exposure to international best practice through the module delivered in collaboration with Kempten University of Applied Sciences which is complemented by a number of industrial field trips in Bavaria. The Department’s partnership with PwC in delivering the MSc ensures that not only will all the enrolled students benefit from cutting edge management thinking but one lucky graduate will also win the chance of accessing the whole package completely free of charge thanks to this generous bursary.”

The MSc in Applied Management is designed for graduates with a business or related degree who wish to develop a strong understanding of management in practice. Students wishing to be considered for the PwC bursary have until 13th August to make their application.

Professor Bob McCullagh, Partner, PwC added: “PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP is pleased to support this MSc course which aims to provide insight into the practical issued faced by managers within a variety of business situations. The strength of any organisation and, by extension, the economy of the country or region within which it operates, is highly dependent on the quality of people leading and managing that organisation. The ability to manage effectively day-to-day operations, while having time and opportunity to innovate, is key to success.

“PwC looks forward to working with the students and teaching staff, through the bursary award and delivery of the management consulting module, and trusts that all students will use this opportunity to gain additional insights into the world of business.”
