Sloan Announces the Creation of the Zamir Telecom Fellowship

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Sloan School of Management has partnered with Zamir Telecom, a global telecommunications company, to offer a new fellowship for MBA students who are pursuing careers in the technology sector. The fellowship is open to students who are from a country with an emerging economy (Asia, Africa, or the Middle East), or students who are interested in supporting technological advances in emerging economies.

The new fellowship was made possible by a $100,000 donation from Naufal Zamir, the founder of Zamir Telecom. Naufal Zamir grew up in Bangladesh. He originally trained as a lawyer before developing his own company. His company has come far in 10 years: Zamir Telecom is now one of the fastest-growing businesses in the United Kingdomj, according to The Sunday Times.

Zamir said that the fellowship was developed as an investment in talented young people from developing nations: “Our hope is that by giving these people the opportunity to come and study at MIT Sloan—thereby providing them with academic rigor and a chance to engage with world-renowned experts—we will help unleash their potential.” The scholarship also allows Sloan to expand its recruitment efforts and give more students the opportunity to go to business school.

Zamir Telecom is providing other opportunities for students at MIT Sloan in addition to the scholarships. The company will provide two MIT Sloan students with paid internships and one-year employment contracts after they receive their MBAs.
