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 or specialisation, who is eligible to graduate, based upon overall performance (WAM) in that individual program or specialisation.
Recipients of the Award are presented with a certificate, an entry is recorded on their academic transcript and their names published on our website.
The Award is available only to students enrolled in Masters Programs, who have successfully completed all program requirements and are eligible for graduation. Students must also qualify to graduate ‘with Excellence’.
The award is not available to students enrolled in Graduate Certificates and Graduate Diplomas.
The top student from each program/specialisation 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 ‘with Excellence’.
Students may receive a postgraduate Dean's Award once only.
