Cranfield University - Cypriot scholarships launched

May 29, 2008

The Ikos hedge fund has paired up with Cranfield School of Management to launch a scholarship programme designed to boost the Cypriot economy. The Ikos scholarship, covering tuition fees and living costs, will allow students from Cyprus to study for an MBA at the institution. Graduates who return home to work within six months will also receive a £10,000 cash bonus. "I hope that knowledge of this programme will encourage other international companies to help enrich Cyprus's business talent and further enable the country's development into an important regional and international business centre within the European Union," said Elena Ambrosiadou, co-founder of Ikos and an alumna of the Cranfield MBA programme.
