A guide from the University of London Careers Group.

If you are seeking sponsorship for your MBA, it is important to think about the benefits and present them in a business case.

This business case should cover areas such as:

How the Global MBA will help you as an individual.

When identifying how the MBA will help you, think about the kinds of skills you will gain and how these will positively impact your work. Highlight how the qualification will help your career progression and your commitment to the organisation.

You may want to include specific examples here, as well as information on how you will feed this knowledge to others within your organisation.

How the Global MBA will benefit your employer.

Demonstrate how your MBA will benefit the organisation. Link the skills you will gain (both module-specific and transferable) to the work that you are currently doing and outline how they will help you to take on more responsibilities.

Outline how the MBA modules specifically meet the current and future needs of your organisation so that your employer can see what the return on their investment will be.

The details of the course, including fees.

You should include:

Sponsors can contribute to part of the fee, if they choose. See our FAQ for sponsors.

How you plan to do the course around your work, including any support you may need.

It is important to show your employer how you will manage to balance your work with your studies. Describe the practicalities, including whether you will require any study days.

Be realistic. Demonstrate that you have thought this through and put a sensible plan in place.
