GEMOS Tuition Waivers

MIP Politecnico di Milano and EADA Business School will award scholarships to deserving participants in the GEMOS programme. The scholarships are in recognition of outstanding merit or achievement in both the academic and professional fields, especially in regards to significant experience or contribution in the field of operations and supply chain management. The criteria for each scholarship is diverse, with some scholarships open to all applicants, whilst others are specifically designed for applicants based on individual circumstance.

The Global Participant Contribution

The Global Participant Contribution is to be awarded to participants who demonstrate significant commitment and dedication by electing to travel extensively in order to take part in the GEMOS programme. While the Executive Master requires all participants to commit to some degree of individual travel, MIP and EADA wish to recognise selected participants from each program, because of their enthusiasm towards education and desire to boost their managerial abilities, in order to lessen the high travel and accommodation costs of the individual.

To partake in this opportunity, candidates meeting the requirements are asked to submit an essay (max. 500 words) on the following topic:
"You have to take ownership and leadership of tomorrow. For that to be possible, you have to strengthen your capacity and widen your vision as a global citizen" (Ban Ki-moon). Discuss.

Country based contributions

MIP offers partial waivers in order to promote international diversity within the class and to provide assistance to talented individuals from disadvantaged countries.

Merit Based Tuition Waivers

MIP is offering contributions for exceptional merit up to 30% of the tuition fee for outstanding candidates. Applicants with exceptional academic background, significant and relevant work experience and other demonstrated high achievement are invited to make an application. The scholarship will be awarded upon a careful evaluation from GEMOS Direction and Admission Committee.

GEMOS for Women

The GEMOS for Women Tuition Waiver is to be awarded to selected female participants in the program who have demonstrated outstanding merit and achievement in an academic or professional sense. The Tuition Waiver is designed to allow for greater accessibility to the programme for women, and in doing so increase the diversity of the programme.

GEMOS for Women Tuition Waivers are available at the amount of up to €4,000 each. 

To be eligible for this competition, you must meet the admission requirements and submit at application stage a small passage (no more than 500 words) on the following topic:

"Women have always had to fight twice.
They have always had to carry two burdens, the private and the social.
Women are the spine of society."
Rita Levi Montalcini, Nobel Prize 

Describe the biggest challenge you have lived in your professional or private life as a woman.

Alumni Waivers

The Alumni Waivers are to be awarded to any Alumni of MIP or EADA who are selected to participate in the GEMOS programme. The 15% waiver is in recognition of the high level of commitment and dedication to personal and professional development through education, as exhibited by past students of both schools. Both MIP and EADA are aware of the dedication, time and effort required to study a post-graduate Masters programme, and so the Alumni waiver is designed to encourage and reward those participants whose work ethic and academic qualities are known to both schools. 

CAB Scholarship

The CAB – Corporate Advisory Board – of the GEMOS programme is pleased to announce 5 scholarships for outstanding professionals in the Operations & Supply Chain Management arena.

Eligible candidates will be able to demonstrate their contribution to the development of international leadership and business practice as described in the programme's objectives. All scholarships are awarded based on merit.

Do you have “the factor” required for leading effective operations and supply management in today’s global and competitive markets?

5 Scholarships of up to 30% will be offered to the best candidates.
