The School of Management held its annual Graduation Prizegiving Ceremony on July 3rd, a few hours before the official graduation ceremony took place at the historic Bath Abbey.

We were delighted to add three new prizes to the awards this year: Barclays France Prize; Rohde & Schwarz Prize; and the Dean’s Award for Outstanding Student Contribution.  In addition a one-off prize was presented by Bath & North East Somerset Council for an employee volunteering project.

Prizes were presented to the most successful graduates from the BSc in Business Administration (BBA), the BSc in Accounting and Finance (BAF)and the BSc in International Management and Modern Languages (IMML).

Each year, the prizes are sponsored by a range of companies, many of which work with the School of Management on a regular basis, providing work placements and projects as well as recruiting our graduates.

This year’s sponsoring organisations were: Danone; Deloitte; L’Oréal; Zurich; BG Group; Accenture; Ernst & Young; BP; PricewaterhouseCoopers; Barclays France; Rohde & Schwarz, Bath & North East Somerset Council.

L’Oréal, Zurich, BP and PwC are all members of the School’s Corporate Partners Scheme.

The School was very pleased to welcome to the prize giving representatives from our sponsoring organisations.  Representing Accenture was Bath alumnus, John Francis, who graduated from the School’s BBA programme in 2002 and the Bath MBA in 2010; it was wonderful to welcome him back to his alma mater.

Students, staff, friends and family gathered to listen to words of congratulation from the Dean, Professor Richard Elliott, followed by a welcome to the alumni network from Suzanne Carrie, Alumni and External Relations Officer.
