Dean's List for Academic Excellence

Undergraduate

The UNSW Australia Business School Dean’s List for Academic Excellence was established to recognise the outstanding achievements of its undergraduate students. It recognises the top 5% of students in the Business School single and dual undergraduate degree programs, based upon performance in our courses in the previous calendar year.

Recipients of the Award are presented with a certificate, an entry is recorded on their academic transcript and their names published on our website.

Eligibility

The Award is only available to students who have successfully completed a minimum of 24 units of credit (UOC) of Business School courses in the previous calendar year (industrial training/experience and exchange courses are not counted as completed units of credit).

The Award is not available to students for their honours year.

Selection

Selection is based on a student’s WAM across Business School courses completed in the previous calendar year.

Awards will be granted for the following stages (stages based on UOC for all courses, not just Business School courses):

  • Stage 1: For students who have completed 0-48 UOC
  • Stage 2: For students who have completed 49-96 UOC
  • Stage 3: For students who have completed >96UOC

As the top 5% of students are selected, the cut-off WAM may vary from year to year and from stage to stage.

Students may only receive a Dean's Award once for each Stage.

Postgraduate

The Business School Dean’s List for Academic Excellence in the postgraduate portfolio was established to recognise the outstanding achievements of its postgraduate students in each Masters program. It recognises the top student in each individually-coded Masters program, who is eligible to graduate, based upon overall performance (WAM) in that individual program.

Recipients of the Award are presented with a certificate, an entry is recorded on their academic transcript and their names published on our website.

Eligibility

The Award is available only to students enrolled in Masters Programs, who have successfully completed all program requirements and are eligible for graduation.

The award is not available to students enrolled in Graduate Certificates and Graduate Diplomas.

Selection

The top student from each course who satisfies the eligibility criteria will be awarded. This list is determined by specific criteria including the student’s overall WAM, which must be of sufficiently high standard regardless of ranking, and the student must have successfully completed all course requirements and be eligible to graduate with the Masters degree.

Students may receive a postgraduate Dean's Award once only.
