MRBA Matters caught up with Managing Director of training provider, Research Academy Mia Lorenz to find out why.  Joint founder with Sia Shahrizad in 2013, Mia previously worked as a freelance researcher and as Associate Director for Custom Research & Insight at education and youth agency YouthSight and has worked as a corporate trainer.

“At Research Academy, we’re delighted to welcome several students this semester who’ve joined our MRS Advanced Certificate course thanks to an MRBA Skills bursary. This follows the announcement in June by the MRBA that it has funded its first five MRBA Skills bursaries.

“We love the MRBA! And we especially love MRBA Skills! It’s good to see such a high level of interest in the MRBA Skills scheme, as the bursaries allow a wider range of people to study for this prestigious qualification.  So, if you or your employer can’t afford to attend one of our MRS Advanced Certificate courses, you too can apply for an MRBA Skills bursary.

“The bursary scheme is open both to those who are new to market research, as well as to those with some experience who are eager to improve their career prospects.  An MRBA Skills bursary covers both the online and face-to-face versions of the course. You’ll need to meet certain criteria regarding income and employment, which are explained on the MRBA website
