EENI's Scholarships for Doctorates and Masters in International Business
EENI Commitment to society - Scholarships for the Professional Master's Program in International Business (MIB) and the Doctorate in International Business (DIB)
One of the EENI (School of International Business) main values is solidarity; it is necessary that people from developing countries can have access to quality education and are also able to establish contacts and business with people from other nations. That is the reason why we set aside part of our resources for Scholarships for students from less developing countries.
Since 2001, we have offered the EENI scholarships for students from around the world with low purchasing power in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe. The region where more scholarships have been granted is Africa. Today, in almost all African countries we have a student with EENI scholarship, no matter their race, sex, religion or political beliefs. We have to give a scholarship to Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Jews, Hinduism, or Confucians students. In war or conflict zones like Iraq or Palestine; we also have given scholarships. Provide scholarships to women, especially in Africa and the Middle East is a priority for us.
In recent years we have seen how people who were almost marginalised in society, thanks to our scholarship are today working in relevant positions worldwide. Many of them, in important multinational or multilateral institutions on issues related to the international business.
It is crucial to point out that all these scholarships have been delivered with EENI’s resources; we have never received any Government subsidy or public aid nor any donation of a company or private organisation.
We encourage to all the students who opt for an EENI scholarship to know the principles of the Global Compact (United Nations).
We would like to share with you some students who have received EENI (School of International Business) scholarships:
Some examples of scholarships for the Master in International Business in Africa.
African students. Africa is increasingly being put aside from international circuits. As a result; it is necessary to create initiatives and dialogues so that African countries can have access to the few advantages that globalisation brings them. It is essential to train African experts who know Western management patterns as well as business know-how, getting them to know how to adapt these patterns to their culture. At EENI we fully believe in Africa, and we think it is necessary that they find their place in globalised business. As far as we can; we will keep on making our small contribution.

Few people have travelled so many countries like him. Pat always reminds me of the importance of African values, the African humanity always latent in African people, that sometimes in Europe we have lost. Pat is also a great friend.” Pedro Nonell - Director of EENI
