Thanks to the generous support of the Institute of Directors, Suffolk Business School will award the Career-Ready Graduate Award for the class of 2020.
This award is unlike others made by Suffolk Business School as it has been designed to reflect and promote the ethos of the University of Suffolk and to showcase the skills, talents and determination of you - our students. This prize will take the form of a £250 award. The winner will also be profiled by the Institute of Directors with a view to securing networking and more broadly paid internship/employment opportunities.
Suffolk Business School students who consider themselves eligible for this award are invited to click on the black banner below for more details and to nominate themselves for this prize.
CLOSING DATE FOR NOMINATIONS: Friday 6 November 2020
WINNER TO BE NOTIFIED: February 2021
This award will be made to a Suffolk Business School graduate, or level 6, student. The award is not made to the student who has the best overall performance at level 6 (although this may be the case), instead the prize will be awarded to a highly enterprising individual who best embodies the ethos of the School.
A short-list of candidates will be compiled by the Business School’s Undergraduate Programme Leaders. When weighing submissions this short-listing group will be invited to consider inter alia:
- the student’s academic performance and other relevant indicators of useful enterprise and engagement such as (but not limited to) involvement in student societies;
- involvement in the student induction scheme;
- participation in the University’s buddy scheme; charity work; and community engagement.
The prize winner in this category will be decided by a panel comprising the Chair of the Suffolk Branch of the Institute of Directors; the President of the Student’s Union; The Director of Human Resources and the Dean of Suffolk Business School.
The prize will take the form of a £250 award. The winner will also be profiled by the Institute of Directors with a view to securing networking and more broadly paid internship/employment opportunities.
