Metso Fellowship Program Now a Reality

In the November newsletter we described a joint Metso-CPBIS initiative, then in the planning stages, to establish a program that will bring technically-trained undergraduates to Georgia Tech to pursue a master’s degree, with a focus on business issues that are relevant to the pulp and paper industry. That program is now in place. Metso Paper North America will be offering a fellowship to a qualified recipient to pursue a Master's Degree in a business-related discipline at Georgia Tech.  Metso recognizes that today's competitive environment requires new employees to have strong business acumen paired with excellent technical skills.  Metso has joined with CPBIS to offer undergraduate engineering students a unique opportunity to pursue post-graduate education in business-related disciplines. Metso will provide financial support for one or more students to pursue a Master's Degree at Georgia Tech in one of several available academic programs.  Supported students will be asked to select a thesis in an area approved by Metso.  Often, these programs will also include part-time or seasonal internships.

Interested applicants must apply to a Georgia Tech Master's program in Economics, Business Administration, International Affairs, Public Policy, or History & Sociology of Technology & Science and must also submit a prescribed-format letter of intent to CPBIS. All application materials for the Metso Fellowship must be submitted by March 31, 2008.  Recipients will be notified by May 15, 2008.
