Warwick Business School Bursary Awards 2024 – in partnership with Warwick Business School

At Heropreneurs we believe that the knowledge and experience gained through an MBA or Executive Diploma at Warwick Business School (WBS) helps transform ambitious and talented individuals into entrepreneurial, creative and effective leaders. Their students have the potential to make an immediate impact in business and society, whether it be on a local or global level. Their motivational teaching and forward-thinking culture provides the perfect environment in which to hone skills, aptitude, and the vision needed to start businesses or transform careers.


Once again, Heropreneurs and WBS have joined forces to provide transformative opportunities to our esteemed military community. The winner of the WBS Award will receive a 100% bursary to study one of their prestigious MBA or Executive Diploma programmes, while the runner-up will be awarded a substantial 75% bursary, and the third-place contender will receive a generous 50% bursary.

These awards are designed to help individuals transition to the next stage of their career, and to help provide the knowledge and competencies required to not only aid personal and professional development but to make a real and positive impact in the world.
