How to enter

To put yourself forward for the UKFast MBA Scholarship, you must create a YouTube clip of your business idea. It must be no longer than 60 seconds, and can develop an existing idea or be a concept entirely of your own creation. You will also need to submit your CV and undertake a psychometric test.

Top tip: We will be using criteria based on a number of things to do with your idea. Such as the clarity of your idea, whether it is unique and how different it is in the market. We still want you to be creative when putting together your video and we will be judging you on how clear your message is, however, our focus will be on what your idea is and how you present it.
