“Today I work as an Engineering Director for PepsiCo in Africa, the Middle East and South Asia, managing roughly $500 million a year in capital expenditure,. So I’m very grateful for the finance and accounting skills I picked up on the programme, and the scholarship that got me there in the first place.”

Seeking employer support

Establish a confident and compelling business case before asking for financial support from your employer. Know how the EMBA will build your skills and how your newfound knowledge and networks will help your organisation tackle challenges and opportunities in the future.

  • Demonstrate how your employer will benefit from your Cambridge or Global EMBA by completing a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) analysis on your organisation 
  • Link learnings from the EMBA programme and the skills you’ll develop to your organisation’s challenges 
  • Work out whether your financial assistance is going to be full or part-sponsorship 
  • Negotiate part-sponsorship through: 
    • bonus payments 
    • salary sacrifice 
    • matched funding 
    • tuition reimbursement at different stages of the programme 
    • time – vacation, unpaid leave, study leave, or days in lieu
