Supporting your further career development
Gaining a top leadership position or enhancing your knowledge in certain professional fields requires an investment of time and money in your education.

We support ambitious people to become the leaders of tomorrow while setting a particular emphasis on the advancement of women in leadership positions.

In cooperation with the 30% Club, we are delighted to offer two ambitious women a 50% scholarship for WHU’s Management Essentials Program and the Advanced Management for Senior Professionals Program.
The 30% Club is convinced that gender balance on boards and in senior management not only encourages better leadership and governance, but diversity further contributes to better all-round board performance and ultimately increases corporate performance for both companies and their shareholders.
The cooperation between WHU and the 30% Club supports determined female managers and leaders to reach a better gender balance within organizations at all levels.
Furthermore, this scholarship enables students to join 30% Club Horizon events which will be specially filmed and can be viewed online through their digital platform.
To apply for this scholarship, please send an e-mail with your CV and letter of motivation to email@example.com. We look forward to welcoming an increasing number of ambitious and visionary women to our Executive Education Programs.
With a majority of top management within companies being largely male, we would particularly like to draw your attention to the WHU Advanced Management for Senior Professionals Program (AMSP). If you are an experienced female executive looking to advance your career, this program is designed to challenge you as a senior leader as you make the transition to an executive or even board-level position. During this 9-day transformative learning experience, you will enhance your strategic impact and negotiation skills and discuss digital transformation challenges and opportunities on a global level.
