Telenor MBA Scholarships applicants now have more time to prepare for their applications as the application deadline is extended to July 15.
Telenor MBA Scholarships program is a collaboration of Telenor Myanmar and Myanmar Metropolitan College to offer full scholarships to Myanmar students pursuing Master of Business Administration (MBA) in Strategic ICT Management. The two organizations officially signed an agreement on this significant partnership last month in Yangon.
The program becomes the first ever scholarship opportunity available in Myanmar dedicated to those who are particularly interested in the emerging telecom industry and the country’s economic development. Winners will get full stipend for MBA in Strategic ICT Management in addition to MBA course awarded from the University of Business and International Studies in Switzerland which affiliates with Myanmar Metropolitan College.

As Telenor’s senior experts will also deliver lectures to the students, this will be an excellent opportunity for the ambitious Myanmar youths to get equipped with vital skills and expertise for the future and plus, to earn MBA awarded by a foreign university and specialised in the ICT technology.
