Saltire Fellowship

Saltire Fellowship

The 2013-2014 RSE Saltire Fellow

The 2013-14 Saltire Fellowship is a better, faster, cheaper option to an MBA or equivalent executive education, with international prestige and networks.

  • Designed and delivered in partnership with Babson College, Boston – the #1 US Business School for Entrepreneurship
  • Short, sharp – unlike an MBA, the core programme is intense and delivered in Scotland, US and China in 4 months. 
  • The programme is taught principally by very successful entrepreneurs and business people who have been taught how to teach.  They are in many cases multi-millionaires who have run, sold, bought businesses from start-ups to international corporates or are venture capitalists, bankers and business angels.
  • Very experiential – the Fellows learn by doing not just the theory.  They undertake live projects while at Babson either in US firms or for UK based firms looking internationally.  They also undertake a high growth project in Scotland.  Plus there is constant use of case studies and invited guests in teaching. 
  • Networks at senior level - introduction to Saltire Foundation, Babson and GlobalScot networks plus immersion in the Boston and Scottish entrepreneurial ecosystem and taught elements in China and possibly Silicon Valley. 
  • Programme is full-time and runs from 2 September 2013-11 April 2014.  Please contact Linda Barclay for more detailed programme information.
  • Career prospects- 100% of 2012/13 Fellows are employed within a month of graduation
  • As the RSE Saltire Fellow, you will receive a guaranteed bursary of £21,042 and a deferred payment of £3,006 (payable 2 years after graduation, no interest).  Additional funding may be available.
