More than 50 talented students from the Australian Graduate School of Management (AGSM) have received scholarships and prizes at the annual Australian School of Business awards ceremony.

An audience of more than 400 guests celebrated the achievements of AGSM's top-performing students at the annual ceremony which saw more than 200 prizes and scholarships (valued at over 1.9 million dollars) presented. The scholarships and prizes awarded on the evening are funded by generous individual donors who include AGSM alumni as well as many of the School's long-time corporate supporters.

Professor Chris Styles, Deputy Dean of the Australian School of Business and Director of the AGSM awarded the 2013 AGSM scholarships and prizes to students from the MBT, MBA and MBA (Executive) programs recognising Academic Excellence, Women in Leadership and Community Spirit.

"The AGSM prepares great people to do great things and we are incredibly proud of the students who have been recognised for outstanding achievement," said Professor Styles.

Dean of the Australian School of Business, Professor Geoffrey Garrett, was the keynote speaker for the evening and used the opportunity to update students and guests with the latest news from the School, including the appointment of Associate Professor, Julie Cogin to the new role of Deputy Dean Engagement.

Professor Garrett also reflected on the achievements of the School's students and academics and their engagement with the wider business community.

"Our teaching programs combine first rate disciplinary and technical expertise with the full suite of leadership skills. It is this combination that makes our students stand out in the globally competitive market for business talent," said Professor Garrett.

Students were able to share the evening with their peers, family and friends. Some of the evening's winners were also able to meet their prize or scholarship donor to personally thank them.
