Flinders University is offering a full tuition fee scholarship to one postgraduate Indian student of business management. The university, based in Adelaide, Australia, has partnered with BW Businessworld magazine in India to launch the Flinders University BW Businessworld Scholarship. It will be awarded to a student with an outstanding level of academic merit, a passion for innovation and the determination to become part of the next generation of game changers.

To support other students develop their personal enterprise and innovation skills, Flinders University will also offer 15% tuition fee scholarships to eligible Indian students with an offer to a Flinders Business postgraduate course.

The range of scholarships was launched at the Australian High Commission in Delhi on Thursday. Top officials of Flinders University currently in India for the launch of Flinders Business include Professor Phyllis Tharenou, Vice President and Executive Dean of Flinders University’s College of Business, Government and Law, Mr Matthew Schultz, Director, Marketing and Recruitment, and Mr Mark Charnley, Regional Manager South Asia and North America. Undergraduate accounting student Zak Robson, whose numerous achievements include the 2016 Accountants’ Daily Australian Accounting Student of the Year award, is also part of the team.

Prof. Tharenou says that within 10 years, 40% of the tasks most people perform will have changed. “We have transformed business and commerce degrees at Flinders University to prepare our students to adapt and thrive in the future,” she says. “With a host of new staff with international business experience, Flinders Business offers our students opportunities for industry projects with real clients, work placements in prestigious firms, and practical opportunities to develop networks with professionals and alumni.”

These electives, which can be combined with business studies, engineering, or arts, are offered in collaboration with the Fox School of Business at Temple University, Philadelphia, one of the top 10 business schools in the United States for entrepreneurship.

Flinders University’s New Ventures Institute leverages university resources to feed innovation and entrepreneurship.
