Outstanding undergraduate and postgraduate students from the Australian School of Business received scholarships and prizes on June 5 at the annual School awards ceremony.

An audience of over 400 guests celebrated the achievements of our top-performing students whose scholarships and prizes are funded by generous individual donors (including Australian School of Business alumni) as well as key sponsors and major employers of the School's graduates.

Over 200 students have been awarded prizes and scholarships in 2013 to the value of over $1.9 million dollars.

Australian School of Business Dean, Professor Geoffrey Garrett used the keynote address as an 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, and some students were also able to meet their prize or scholarship donor to personally thank them.

The Master of Ceremonies for the event was Bachelor of Comme​rce/Science student Nicholas Horowitz who was the recipient of The Maple-Brown NSW Rural Scholarship in 2012.
