Alumni of the Year

Notable Alumni: Celebrating our Outstanding Business Graduates

Since 1991, the school has celebrated and recognised the business achievements and success of our graduates through the ‘Alumnus of the Year’ award. Each year at the Alumni Awards Dinner, we recognise outstanding alumni who have excelled in their chosen arena and who are recognised as inspirational or transformational leaders by the wider business, school and graduate communities.

The calibre of people honoured by the school as illustrated below will give you an idea of the overall excellence of the alumni community.
