A unique opportunity to develop your business acumen in the United States of America
Fulbright New Zealand develops future leaders through one of the most prestigious exchange scholarships in the world and is committed to helping New Zealand strengthen its economic development and grow business capability. The most valuable of Fulbright New Zealand’s range of graduate awards, the Fulbright-Platinum Triangle Award in Business is for an emerging business leader to complete a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree at the leading US business school of their choice, to gain professional work experience through internships in the US, and to access employment networks or venture capital contacts upon their return to New Zealand. One or two awards valued at US$60,000 (plus travel expenses, insurance and a paid internship) are offered each year.
The Fulbright-Platinum Triangle Award in Business helps grantees to further develop the business acumen, leadership skills, networks and aspirations that will accelerate them in their business ambitions, before returning to New Zealand to help grow our economy through new business ventures. In the process grantees develop international networks which last a lifetime and strengthen the relationship between New Zealand and the United States.
There have been seven Fulbright-Platinum Triangle Awards in Business granted since the programme started in 2005. Grantees have drawn on their impressive skills in areas including biomedicine, bio-technology, information technology, agricultural biotechnology, medical information technology and change management to create business opportunities that are strengthening US-NZ relations and helping to grow both economies. They have become successful world-class business people and mentors for budding New Zealand entrepreneurs.
If you are an emerging business leader with lots of initiative and want to take your business acumen to a new level, don’t miss this opportunity that could change your life!
Applications for the 2013 Fulbright-Platinum Triangle Award in Business close at 5:00pm on 1 June 2012.
