RSE and Saltire Foundation announce new Fellowship

Posted 11/06/2013

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 two years after graduation, no interest). Additional funding may be available.


Key Dates:

  • Please register your interest with Linda Barclay as soon as possible (referencing the RSE opportunity);
  • Application deadline is 24 June 2013;
  • Interviews will be held shortly thereafter;
  • Programme start date is 2 September 2014.
