It’s time to reveal the finalists for the AMBA & BGA Excellence Awards 2024.

Judging process

In each of the categories, the entries will be shortlisted by AMBA & BGA, before the shortlist of finalists goes before a panel of expert judges.

In the categories for business schools, the judges will decide the outcome from the written entries alone; while in categories for students and graduates the judging panel will conduct short interviews with finalists, via conference call or virtual meeting, to decide the winners.  

After consultation, the judges will individually award points to each entry. These points will be totaled and the entry with the highest total number of points will be awarded the gold prize in the category, the second highest scorer will win the silver prize, and the third highest scorer will win the bronze prize.

The judges will score the entries blindly and will not find out the outcome until the Award winners are announced. 

This year’s esteemed judging panel is now available, learn more about our judges below.
