Young African leaders are supported and encouraged by MTN Group to dream big and be bold when it comes to pursuing their careers.

MTN’s scholarships are available for students subscribing their application for an MBA or MPhil (Master of Philosophy) in Inclusive Innovation at the University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business. The company is encouraging visionary and bold leaders for whom innovation, inquisitiveness, and entrepreneurial drive are the pillars of their personal philosophy having a significant impact in the world.
