Data Lab Scholarships for Msc Operational Research and MSc Business Analysis and Consulting

With a generous funding from the Data Lab (, Department of Management Science are delighted to offer up to 4 scholarships towards tuition fees for the MSc Operational Research and MSc Business Analysis and Consulting 2016 entry (full-time only). Applications are open to *Scottish and EU students only*, and each of these scholarships will be worth £9500, covering the full tuition fee. The application deadline is 25 July 2016 Monday. Further details below.

The applicants are expected to have (or near completion of) a Upper Second Class Honours (undergraduate) degree, or equivalent (a minimum 3.2 GPA in a 4.0 GPA system, or a minimum 85% average, or a minimum average of B+ in a letter system). Final year undergraduate students are eligible to apply.

Candidates interested in applying for these prestigious scholarships are required to provide a brief statement (up to 300 words) in their online applications which should clearly articulate their interest in the growing area of data science and analytics and their reasons for applying for the scholarship.

Applicants must have an offer of a place on the programme.

If you are rewarded this scholarship, you will be required to undertake the elective module 'MS979 Analytics for Big Data' for MSc Operational Research students or 'MS980 Business Analytics' for MSc Business Analysis and Consulting students. Funded students will be expected to complete the MSc course, and also to participate in events organised by Data Lab, including the Data Talent Scotland event to be held in Edinburgh on 22nd March 2017 (all travel costs will be reimbursed for these events by the Data Lab).

The selected students will be announced early August. The selection process will be based on your background (in particular the level of your degree) as well as the short statement you provide. Msc Operational Research students will be given preference in the selection process in case of equal standing, however, we strongly encourage MSc Business Analysis and Consulting with a strong standing to apply as well.
