Upskilling – The Benefits

Published 12/05/2021 11:40:00, by Marina Maher

Leaving the Royal Navy or Royal Marines can be a great opportunity to upskill and thus broaden and improve your long term employment opportunities.  The London Business School has issued an open invitation to attend a panel discussion with their Military in Business Club members when they will talk about the impact that attendance at Business School has had on their careers post the military. If this is of interest to you register at



If you are interested in exploring active learning with the LBS you should be aware that the school offers the following to military applicants:

Application fee waiver for applicants who are in active military roles at the time of applying (MBA Programme)
London Business School Military Scholarship – Up to £30k
UK Military Scholarship – Up to £25k
Laidlaw Women’s Leadership Fund (social mobility fund, potentially covering full-tuition, women from the military are often ideal candidates, available on both MBA and EMBA)
General Merit-Based Scholarships - Military applicants often make great students and all will be considered automatically for merit-based scholarships awarded on strength of the application.

One of the big challenges for serving military personnel is studying and taking standardised tests like GMAT/GRE, especially if they are deployed.

For the MBA programme all applicants need to submit a score of either the GMAT/GRE but for the LBS Executive MBA and Masters in Finance programme they will assess waivers for this requirement on a  case by case basis.  The Executive MBA students can also take the “Executive Assessment” which is meant to be a less demanding standardised test developed for leadership programmes.
