BGA’s Student of the Year Award 2022 is a new award for this year. The BGA Student of the Year Award recognises students who have shown exceptional career potential and who BGA believes can act as ambassadors for BGA Business Schools. The students will be from a wide range of different personal and professional backgrounds and who are studying towards any Business School degree programme with the exception of the MBA or EMBA.
This award doesn’t just reward ‘straight-A’ students but also focuses on leadership potential and career progression.
The award is open to students from an BGA Schools, and the Schools are invited to nominate one student who they think is eligible based on the Award Criteria.
Only one nomination can be accepted from each School and the nominee MAY NOT be an MBA or EMBA student, although any other under-graduate or post-graduate student from a BGA member, validated or accredited Business School will be considered.
The Business School must inform the nominee of their intention to nominate.
It should be a given that students entering this category should have a strong record of academic achievements, so evidence of this is less important than other ‘stand-out’ qualities such as ambassadorial excellence, leadership and career potential.
Judges will be looking for evidence that:
Shortlisted finalists will be invited to a telephone interview with the judges for this award. We will also request finalists to provide a biography, photo and answers to why they should win this award which we will use for marketing purposes.
