Distinct Scholarship

Distinct Business Consulting Ltd have once again partnered with the UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School to support the MSc in Business Analytics by offering the Distinct Scholarship.

Distinct Scholarship

Distinct is a business intelligence consultancy, which provides transformational consulting services to businesses and organisations. Distinct works in partnership with clients to diagnose where business benefit can be achieved and to design appropriate solutions to deliver results. Combining a proven record of accomplishment with substantial expertise across industries and business functions, Distinct works with businesses and organisations to enable them to become high-performing.

Distinct have collaborated with the UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School to support the MSc in Business Analytics by offering the Distinct Scholarship.

The Distinct Scholarship will be €3000 for the 2011-2012 academic year.

Applications are invited from people who have accepted full time places on the MSc in Business Analytics and who have achieved the equivalent of a First Class Honour (greater than or equal to 3.68 GPA in UCD) or a Second Class Honour, First Division (from 3.08 to 3.67 GPA inclusive in UCD) in their undergraduate degree.

Applicants will be assessed on:

  • their performance in relevant quantitative and technical subjects in their undergraduate degree
  • their motivation for doing the MSc in Business Analytics
  • their willingness and suitability to conduct their dissertation with Distinct.

(Dissertations represent one third of the work on the MSc and are a business analytics project implemented using computerised techniques).

Applicants will be assessed by a panel of adjudicators appointed by the UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School. This panel may include representatives from Distinct or other members of the Business community. The panel of adjudicators may decide not to offer the scholarship, if applicants do not reach the required standard.

Successful applicants will be expected to allow their name and photograph to be used in publicity material prepared by the UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School and Distinct.

Those who have accepted full time places on the MSc in Business Analytics may apply by email to analytics@ucd.ie. The application email should have the subject line “Distinct Scholarship” and should contain a paragraph of no more than 100 words indicating how the applicant hopes to benefit by attending the MSc in Business Analytics programme and by working on a dissertation project with Distinct. Applications for the scholarship will be accepted until 15th July, 2011. Following that date, further information may be required from applicants or they may be called for interview.
