AMBA’s MBA Student of the Year Award plays a pivotal role in supporting AMBA’s pledge to promote the MBA as the leading international business qualification.
The MBA Student of the Year Award recognises students who have shown exceptional career potential and who AMBA believes can act as ambassadors for the high quality of accredited MBAs and the opportunities these programmes provide for students from a wide range of different personal and professional backgrounds.
This award doesn’t just reward ‘straight-A’ students but also focuses on leadership potential and career progression.
The award is open to any current MBA or Executive MBA (EMBA) student from an AMBA-accredited School programme. AMBA-accredited Business Schools are invited to nominate one MBA student who they think is eligible based on the Award Criteria.
Only one nomination can be accepted from each School.
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.
