"It is a well known fact that the financial cost of studying for an MBA degree in Australia is very high. Therefore there are not many people or potential students who can afford to apply for and study for an MBA degree. Those that cannot afford it usually look for various scholarships to help them attain this very sought after qualification. Potential students also apply for large loans to assist them with the payment of their MBA degrees in Australia. However, those that are not fortunate enough to receive either a scholarship or a loan have to then end their dream and goal of achieving or qualifying for an MBA degree and put it off until a later date when
they can afford to go onto the MBA program or until they receive that scholarship or loan, whichever comes first. Another way that people wishing to achieve an MBA degree in Australia is for them to apply for and receive a bursary from a company within Australia or from a company or industry internationally, somewhere overseas".
"What many potential MBA students do is they find employment with a multinational firm that has a company sponsored education program. This means they can work for the company within Australia but because it is a worldwide company they have sufficient funds to assist people who want to study for the very expensive MBA degrees. Joining these types of companies within Australia also provides the potential MBA student with the possibility of being transferred to many of the other countries where the firm is established. This also provides the potential student with the opportunity of seeing and working in different countries which will obviously be of huge benefit to them and will stand out on their Curriculum Vitaes for future employment should the occasion arise".
"Once these people have worked for a number of years for these companies or firms, within certain industries, then they might be able to apply for these bursaries. It is not a given fact or cast in stone that a person automatically qualifies for a bursary in any of these multinational companies. The usual practice is to apply for the bursary once the potential student has worked there for a number of years. It is obviously upto the discretion of the respective firm or company’s executive management to decide whether the person qualifies to receive a bursary from that specific company or firm. People need to understand that receiving a bursary is not automatic and is not a right to receive such a grant from any company within Australia or internationally".
