Kofi Annan Fellowship 2018


The Kofi Annan Fellowship is a fellowship grant for an emerging leader from a developing country for a two-year Master’s in Management (MIM) or a one-year full-time MBA education at ESMT Berlin in Berlin, Germany.

The Kofi Annan Fellowship provides the opportunity for talented and motivated students from developing countries, who do not belong to a privileged class and lack sufficient financial means, to study management at ESMT in Berlin and graduate with a prestigious MBA or MSc from the most international business school in Germany.

Upon return to their home countries, the Fellows are expected to contribute to the strengthening of entrepreneurial capacity and the fostering of a stable market economy as an effective catalyst for their country’s development, job creation, and poverty alleviation.

ESMT will scout for these talents, select them, provide preparation if needed; give fair compensation for expenses like travel, accommodation, and program fees; and guide the Fellows through their stay at the School. After graduation, ESMT will offer support to the Fellows in starting their new careers and building a network among the Kofi Annan alumni.

Under the umbrella of the Kofi Annan Business Schools Foundation, ESMT is joining forces with associated European business schools to create a scalable number of successful Kofi Annan Fellowships.
