About the Dean's List

This prestigious award is a real opportunity for ambitious students looking to gain recognition of their academic, employability and social responsibility-related achievements since starting at the School.


This award is open to undergraduates and postgraduates of the Management School in their final year of study.  Our Pathway to the Dean's List series allows first and second year undergraduates an opportunity to learn and understand the award criteria. This will be a helpful preliminary process enabling students to gain insight about the School's Mission and Vision, and hopefully, become more knowledgeable about what makes a Dean's List winner.
