MBS Launches Fellowships To Give Students Sustainability Experience

The MBS Centre for Sustainability and Business has launched five fellowships to give incoming MBA students financial support for their studies while working on sustainability-related projects.

The fellowships provide financial support of up to A$10,000 and  work experience opportunities of up to 250 hours per student.

Each fellowship will focus on a sustainability-related project with project work to commence from 2023. The fellowships are available to applicants of Melbourne Business School’s Full-time MBA program, who don’t have to wait to be formally accepted into the MBA program to show their interest in a fellowship.

“The fellowships are an important way to engage students and give them first-hand exposure to the changing role of sustainability for businesses,” said Professor Glenn Hoetker, the centre’s director and Melbourne Business School Foundation Chair of Sustainability and Business.

“Core to the centre’s strategy is treating sustainability as a business issue. So, we hope to attract fellows with diverse backgrounds. Prior experience related to sustainability is great, of course, but we are equally excited to work with fellows who want to apply their experience in other areas of business to the multi-faceted challenge of sustainability.”
