Each year the CMA offers The Cranfield Trust MBA Scholarships for the Voluntary Sector in Europe. These full fee scholarships are open to candidates working for a European charitable voluntary organisation addressing issues of poverty, disability and social exclusion. Successful scholarship winners for 2011 were Charmaine Griffiths of the British Heart Foundation and Ruth Lowe of Platform 51. You can follow their progress on their blogs at Charmaine Griffiths

University of Glasgow
The AACSB accredited University of Glasgow Business School draws heavily upon the research and scholarly traditions of one of the ancient universities of Scotland, and provides significant benefits to participants in terms of the learning environment, resources, support services, high quality academic staff, and links with business and industry.
Manchester Business School
At Manchester Business School, the academic rigour and business relevance of our activities is one of our key strengths: we ensure that our innovative research covers contemporary topics and is informed by interaction with industry. We design programmes that provide our students with the transferable skills and behaviours needed to manage and lead in today's complex business environment. That is why our award-winning programmes are highly regarded, both nationally and internationally.

Our students come from 146 countries to learn at undergraduate, masters, MBA and PhD level. WBS educates and develops global citizens, and promotes new knowledge to benefit business and society, through its executive education and applied research.
