2007 Leadership Scholarship Winner Announced

Leadership Scholarship 2007 has Chinese Winner

Chinese Yanyan Chen was announced winner of the prestigious leadership scholarship conferred by QS World MBA Tour. Yanyan Chen attended the 2007 QS World MBA Tour in Beijing and will begin her MBA program in September 2007.

QS managing director Nunzio Quacquarelli, who made the award, said, “Yanyan Chen proved a deserving winner and a good leader with the ability to mould and sustain a team of achievers, especially in the IT field.”

Yanyan Chen established a campus portal website to aggregate all student affairs and events, recruiting volunteers from different schools. The website was presented to the visiting National Vice President Li Lanquing as a key achievement in the IT field. Yanyan then orchestrated the first E-culture festival as the official launch of the website.

The scholarships are available exclusively to attendees of the QS World MBA Tour, a total of over 350 business schools visiting 43 countries and the largest programme of business school events worldwide.

The other winners of the QS scholarships, all of whom attended the QS World MBA Tour in their home countries, are:

  • Juan José Ospina, a Colombian citizen who will be studying at Chicago GSB;
  • Hervé David Gregoire from France, awaiting a decision from Stanford GSB
  • Monisha Saran from USA, who has accepted a place at Wharton in May 2007;
  • Soo Ah Lee from South Korea, who will study at MIT from September 2007;
  • William Morgan from the UK who began his MBA at ESADE in March 2007.

“QS Scholarship winners are united by their demonstration of responsible leadership and community commitment, in very varied circumstances,” says Nunzio Quacquarelli, the managing director of careers and education group QS.

“All of these young people have done something remarkable in their lives. Take, for example, Juan José Ospina who, by learning about the futures market and formulating trading and hedging strategies, played a part in revolutionising the very conservative coffee industry in Colombia. Or Hervé David Gregoire who made a successful proposal to the Energy Minister of the Congo to bring solar power to a huge under-privileged, rural area of the country that would become cost-effective within 3 years.”

Potential MBA students have a great opportunity to apply for the next round of scholarships when the World MBA Tour arrives in a city near them. After attending the Fair, applicants apply to a school of their choice and support their application with a written document showing the reasons why they deserve the award.
