All successful African MBA applicants to the top ten business schools (as ranked by the Financial Times) are eligible to receive the TY Danjuma MBA Scholarship, regardless of their domicile. Awarded candidates will receive their grant prior to the annual intake date for that business school. However, whilst the TY Danjuma MBA Scholarship will provide additional financial support to help African student’s bridge part of the gap and relieve some of the financial burden attached to taking on MBA programmes, it will not be enough to act as the primary source of funding for these programmes.

Launched in 2011, The TY Danjuma MBA Scholarship aims to help up to eight students a year. To date, scholarships have been awarded to 50 students – from Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda and Zimbabwe, Ghana, Morocco, Togo and Côte d’Ivoire  – who have gone on to attend:

  • Harvard Business School
  • London Business School
  • MIT: Sloan
  • Stanford Graduate School of Business
  • University of California at Berkeley: Haas
  • University of Chicago: Booth
  • IE Business School Madrid
  • University of Cambridge: Judge
  • University of Pennsylvania: Wharton
  • Columbia Business School
  • HEC Paris
  • Dartmouth College: Tuck
  • Duke University: Fuqua
