Dunham Scholars

London and beyond

Fully funded by a generous gift from Archie and Linda Dunham, the Dunham Scholars program provides a unique and unparalleled opportunity for outstanding MBA students to pursue international experience.

The multitude of economic and political changes throughout the world today demands an increasing number of individuals who are educated and trained in the complex requirements of international business. Students come away from the Dunham program with experiences in international products, international capital markets, and an awareness for international culture as well as immense exposure to, and familiarity with, global business practices and institutions. 

Through academic study and internship opportunities abroad, Dunham Scholars are exposed to the best practices of the world’s leading companies. While in London, students:

  • Intern in the London financial district or in an international or domestic corporate setting
  • Take a course at the London School of Economics
  • Network with OU alumni, while experiencing London's unique culture

“The Dunham scholarship was a big reason I chose OU over other graduate school programs. I had studied abroad several times during my undergraduate degree, but I wanted to know what it was like to work abroad. The Dunham scholarship gave me an opportunity to do both. Living and working in Tokyo was an irreplaceable experience. I loved the hustle of the city and the people. The connections and work skills I gained in Tokyo will help me throughout my career.”
