The LSE Executive Education Courses Scholarship is designed specifically for current and aspiring fund Chief Investment Officers. Recognising the significant role fund CIOs play as business leaders in their own right, the scholarship is intended to provide a senior investment professional with the opportunity to develop skills in a general management (non-investment) discipline.

Made possible with the support of Aberdeen Asset Management and BNP Paribas Securities Services, the Scholarship covers full-costs associated with return business-class travel, tuition and accommodation for the period of the executive program.

Congratulations to Matthew Condon from Rio Tinto Super awarded the 2016 scholarship to London School of Economics.
