At Cranfield School of Management, we are passionate about providing access to education and removing barriers that may prevent talented and deserving students from participating in our programmes. Women’s Leadership is an area of particular strength for Cranfield, which hosts the Centre for Gender, Leadership, and Inclusion.

MBA alumnus Antony Jenkins CBE and Amanda Jenkins have chosen to fund this scholarship to provide future women leaders who may not otherwise be able to attend the Programme with the opportunity to participate in the Cranfield MBA. Graduating from Cranfield in 1988, Antony has had a long and successful career in banking, including serving as Group CEO of Barclays between 2012 and 2015, and is now the Founder and CEO of 10x Future Technologies, a Fintech company based in London.
