The Executive Women’s MBA at Brenau University has been blazing a trail since it got started. As the first program of its kind — an executive MBA program geared entirely towards women — they’ve attracted impressive candidates across a number of fields: journalists, nuclear, space, technology and robotics experts, healthcare administrators and more. Now building the third cohort of the program, school leadership is focused on growing and delivering more to their candidates and grads. The singular focus on female students has proven to be incredibly successful in helping EWMBA candidates achieve their professional goals and build a strong, lasting network.
We’ve been privileged to work with Brenau as they launched this program, and are thrilled to share that we’re renewing our scholarship — the MBAchic Fellowship — for a third offering. Each of our MBAchic Fellows will receive $10,000 toward their studies (covers almost 15% of the program cost) that start in January 2022.
Now accepting MBAchic Fellowship applications for January 2022 start.
