Coming from a disadvantaged social background, they would not have been able to come to France without the financial support of the MBS Foundation for Equal Opportunities which launches an annual call for candidates. The target countries, which are different each year, are chosen by the members of the Executive Committee: they are developing countries or countries experiencing particular difficulties (war situation or very serious economic problems).
Since 2012, 17 students from Syria, Haiti, Colombia, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Myanmar, Dominican Republic, Vietnam, Mali, Venezuela, Bangladesh, Peru have been able to come and complete the last two years of the Grande Ecole Program at MBS.
Through corporate donations, The MBS Foundation covers the tuition fees of the laureates and also finances living expenses.
