London – 30 November 2021: Women in Mining UK (WIM UK) are delighted to be partnering with Imperial College London to offer another annual scholarship for the 2022 Metals and Energy Finance MSc course at the Department of Earth Science & Engineering and Imperial College Business School. Applications are now open until 28 February 2022. Learn more about the scholarship opportunity here.
The one-year MSc is unique in teaching quantitative financial analysis, strategic management and the required technical skill in the context of metals and energy projects. The cohort of just 25 students benefits from a close-knit network at one of the world’s most preeminent educational institutions.
Alex Buck, Managing Director, said, “Part of our mission at Women in Mining UK is to promote the mining industry as a career for women and this begins at the education level. Our scholarship initiative reduces the financial barriers that might prevent talented young women from pursuing a career in the industry as well as contributing to improving its overall diversity. It is now universally recognised that diversity creates more productive, creative and resilient teams that have safer practices, all qualities the mining industry requires as it tackles a future decarbonised world.”
