Hertfordshire Business School Dean’s Awards honours student achievement

31 October 2019

Student achievement honoured across the Business School at Dean's Awards dinner

On the evening of 17 October, the class of 2019 put on their best outfits and made their way to Beales Hotel in Hatfield for the 2019 Dean’s Awards dinner.  The Dean’s Awards honour recent graduates from across the Business School who have excelled in their studies, but also those who have grown intellectually and transformed their outlook and prospects as a result of studying, or those who have overcome challenging personal circumstances.

For the first time, Hertfordshire Business School also celebrated its ‘Rising Stars’ – recent graduates who were identified as the ‘ones to watch’ throughout their degree programmes and who shone the brightest, and are likely to be going places in the near future.

The School was also delighted to welcome representatives of many of our business partner organisations to the event, some of whom have been long-term members of the 2020 Business Advisory Group.   Our business partnerships strengthen our student experience, and it was excellent that so many of them were able to take part.

Professor Damian Ward, Dean of Hertfordshire Business School, said ‘I am immensely proud of what our students and graduates have achieved.’
