Cranfield Trust MBA Scholars

Charles Scott was awarded the first Cranfield Trust MBA Scholarship in 2004 and is now Executive Director of Corporate Shared Services at Action for Children, a UK children's charity.  

“Everything about the Cranfield MBA is world class, from the quality of the teaching to the students attending the course. Learning how to hold your own in that environment combined with the new skills and knowledge gained from the course itself, translate directly into increased capability and career prospects.  The organisations I worked for during my studies and my subsequent career have all benefited from my Cranfield MBA.”  Charles Scott
