MBA winner: £35K for Penny's thoughts

An entrepreneur from Berkshire has won a scholarship worth £35,000 to study for an MBA in a competition run by Accountancy Age, our sister publication Computing and Ashridge, one of the country's premier business schools.

Stuart Penny from Great Shefford near Newbury won the prize, after reaching a shortlist of 10. Penny, part owner of Swindon-based IT support services company Miracle Services, said: ‘This will give a big boost in terms of my career and will give me more options for the future.’

Entrants to the competition were asked to write an essay on the subject ‘Survival to growth: personal and organisational strategies’.

The prize gives Penny a place on the two-year Ashridge Executive MBA, which will involve 12 one-week modules and an international study week.

Kai Peters, Ashridge CEO, said: ‘Stuart’s essay was a worthy winner. It was well structured and he had clearly thought his ideas through, being both challenging and provocative.
