UQ Business School Alumnus of the Year Award08 September 2009

UQ Business School's Alumni Association will this week launch its Alumnus of the Year award to recognise the contribution of UQ Business School graduates. Eligible graduates will demonstrate a significant contribution to business, government, or the community. Alumni Association Committee member Ben Cleary said the winner would receive a place on one of UQ Business School's Corporate Education courses for 2010. "The award is a fantastic opportunity to help kick-start the winner's early career," he said. "The winner gets to attend one of UQ Business School's high quality week-long intensive courses enabling them to extend their learning as well as providing a valuable networking opportunity." Mr Cleary said the awards were open to graduates of UQ Business School and its predecessor institutions. He said, "Anyone who holds a UQ business qualification at Bachelor, Masters, or PhD level - and is under 40 years of age as of today - is eligible to apply." "Graduates must demonstrate leadership qualities and be able to provide evidence of a significant contribution to their profession, industry, or community." Nominations close at 5pm (Brisbane time) on Friday 2 October 2009. To find out more contact alumni@business.uq.edu.au.
