Due to the generosity of Court Assistant Emeritus, Professor Martyn Davis, who had the incredibly good fortune to receive a State Department Foreign Specialist Award to study International Marketing at Harvard Business School, the Company is delighted to announce the launch of a new Bursary Award.

This Award, to be known as the Marketors Harvard Business School Bursary and administered through the Marketors Trust, aims to provide a life-changing opportunity for a Liveryman of the Company to attend the very prestigious Advanced Management Programme at the Harvard Business School. Subject to suitable applications being received, it is hoped that our first candidate will attend the Programme commencing in September 2015 and thereafter that suitable candidates will present themselves for consideration at future regular intervals.

The Harvard Business Schools Advanced Management Programme sets the global standard in Executive Education. The intensive residential design, carefully orchestrated curriculum, world-class faculty using state-of-the-art facilities and dynamic peer-to-peer interaction, create an unparalleled learning experience that offers the rarest of opportunities. Through its comprehensive format the AMP has, for almost 70 years, been helping delegates accelerate their careers, transforming proven Executives into exceptional leaders.

The September 2015 programme runs from 8th September until 29th October 2015 inclusive and applications are now invited from suitably qualified Liveryman. In the first instance applications should be sent to the Clerk. Closing date for this round is 28th February 2015. Interviews will be held on 19th March.
