School of Business announces 2018 prizes

Posted by pm357 at Jan 30, 2018 11:10 AM |

The School of Business offers a number of prizes for outstanding performance by undergraduate and postgraduate students. Prize winners are chosen each year and receive a certificate and a cash award. Prizes may be jointly awarded to one or more students.

Professor Zoe Radnor, Dean of the School of Business, said: “The School is very proud of all the students who graduated last week.

“I would like to offer my personal congratulations to all our Graduates. Over 300 School of Business graduates attended the Graduation Ceremony on Friday and many enjoyed the Celebration Reception that took place too.

“A special mention to the School of Business prize winners listed below, who showed excellence throughout their time at the University.”

Graduation does not mark the end of students’ relationship with the School of Business, it is just the beginning of a lifelong relationship. With over 20,000 graduates and representatives in over 80 countries, the introduction to graduates’ next career moves or business contacts could be simply a click away.

The ULSB Alumni Network is a medium to keep up to date with the latest news of the School and for graduates to stay in touch with us and let us know about their achievements. To help build graduates’ networks locally we have started to develop a series of Alumni Chapters, bringing together leading professionals in different region.

We work closely with the University of Leicester Development and Alumni Relations Office to provide a professional global network for life after university, so that graduates can continue to enjoy the benefits of having studied with us.
