UQ Business School Alumnus of the Year Award

8 Sep 2009
UQ Business School's Alumni Association will this week launch its Alumnus of the Year award to recognise the contribution of UQ Business School graduates. Eligible graduates will demonstrate a significant contribution to business, government, or the community. Alumni Association Committee member Ben Cleary said the winner would receive a place on one of UQ Business School's Corporate Education courses for 2010. "The award is a fantastic opportunity to help kick-start the winner's early career," he said. "The winner gets to attend one of UQ Business School's high quality week-long intensive courses enabling them to extend their learning as well as providing a valuable networking opportunity." Mr Cleary said the awards were open to graduates of UQ Business School and its predecessor institutions. He said, "Anyone who holds a UQ business qualification at Bachelor, Masters, or PhD level - and is under 40 years of age as of today - is eligible to apply." "Graduates must demonstrate leadership qualities and be able to provide evidence of a significant contribution to their profession, industry, or community." Nominations close at 5pm (Brisbane time) on Friday 2 October 2009. To find out more contact alumni@business.uq.edu.au.
