Giving the background to the scholarship scheme, Head of Marketing SBC, Mr. Norden Thurston said the 7UPHBS MBA Scholarship was established in 2010 when the company marked 50 years of doing business in Nigeria as an enduring legacy to create a pool of young Nigerians who have acquired global education and leadership training in Harvard University.
