First-of-its-kind scholarship launched as part of a partnership between One Young World and London Business School.
One Young World has partnered with London Business School, to create the One Young World & London Business School Scholarship.
This unique collaboration will provide a life-changing opportunity for a high-achieving young person to attend one of LBS’s world-renowned Early Careers programmes for the 2020/21 academic year. The study options include LBS’s Masters in Financial Analysis, Masters in Management or Masters in Analytics and Management.
The One Young World & London Business School Scholarship will be awarded on a needs and merit basis to a member of the One Young World Ambassador Community who embodies the principles of both organisations and is committed to leveraging responsible business practices to realise positive social change. LBS will meet all programme tuition fees and include a stipend to assist with living costs for the duration of the programme.
The initiative marks the first time One Young World has partnered with a university to develop and deliver a fully-funded scholarship of this kind.

This new partnership with One Young World also sees LBS sending a delegation of ten people – all of whom took part in a competitive application process - to experience One Young World’s 10th annual summit, from 22 to 25 October 2019, in London.
Commenting on the One Young World & London Business School partnership, François Ortalo-Magné, Dean of LBS, said:
“This exclusive and unique partnership marks a step-change at LBS and confirms the School’s deep-rooted commitment to identifying, educating and nurturing the next generation of business leaders to drive positive change.
“LBS believes the business community has an immensely important role in enabling positive change across the world. We are therefore delighted to fund a transformational new scholarship and to send a team of highly talented people to the London One Young World summit.”
