50 % funding for SME Participants – Ashridge Masters Qualifications

A pilot, funded by the UK Department of Business, Innovation & Skills, is presently offering 50% matched funding for the first year of any AMBA accredited Leadership & Management Qualification. This is available on a first come, first served basis for applications made to Ashridge before the end of July 2014. This is open to anyone in a micro or small business, in England, which seeks growth and where affordability is a significant barrier to participation. This is also open to entrepreneurs.

General Requirements


  • An undergraduate degree (or equiv) or a minimum of three years’ professional experience in any sector.

  • There is no requirement for a GMAT.

  • It is important that all managers who do apply have the personal motivation and capability to benefit from and contribute to the programme.

  • You will need to have regular access to an organisation in which to undertake work-based assignments.

  • Regular access to a computer with a good broadband internet connection. It is also preferable that you have a webcam in order to participate in the webinars.

English ability

Applicants must demonstrate their ability to study in English at a Masters level. All programmes are delivered and assessed in English, so you will need English language proficiency sufficient for a Masters level programme.


For example, you may already have a degree which was taught and assessed in English and/or significant professional experience of using spoken and written English. Candidates may be asked to satisfy IELTS/TOEFL standards (minimum spoken and written scores of IELTS 7.0 or TOEFL IBT 100) or Pearson Test of English Academic 60, but this is not a pre-requisite to apply.
