  • The Selection Review committee will be comprised of the Vice Chancellor of Business and Finance, the Assistant Vice Chancellor of Human Resources, the Vice Chancellor of Diversity, the Executive Director of Executive MBA programs, and the Directors of the EMBA/Professional MBA programs. The committee will select one applicant for the program who must then meet all application requirements for the program.
  • Scholarship recipients will only be admitted when there is program capacity unused by external customers paying full rates. The availability of UT slots will be determined thirty days after the priority deadline.
  • Scholarship recipients must remain as a full-time employee for two years following graduation or will be responsible for repaying the scholarship portion and, if appropriate, any departmental funding.
  • In addition to the normal waiver of tuition, the scholarship will cover the program fee except for 50 percent of the variable cost which can be funded by the individual or the appropriate department. Currently the amount not covered by the scholarship will be $18,000 for the 2016 EMBA program. Scholarship recipients will also be responsible for any miscellaneous costs which are not covered in the program fee and are required by all students.

Individual leave must be taken for the time required in the program and coordinated with the recipient’s supervisor.
