MBA Prize Giving winners

The full-time Bath MBA cohort, faculty and staff celebrated the presentation of the BP Prize for Best Team in Managing Operational Processes on Friday 19th April.

A prize of £250 was shared amongst the winning team, who had achieved the highest marks for their team report and presentation in the module lead by Professor Mike Lewis. This year’s winners were Tiago Martinho, Alexander Nugaev, Suzy McKeever, Rob Dancer, Diego Rios Salamanca and Nneka Ekwuozor who had based their project on the operational systems of the University of Bath Library.

Suzy McKeever, a member of the winning team, said:
"The quality of teaching and involvement from everyone in the MBA class was exceptional on this assignment. Everyone worked extremely hard, putting in long hours and exploring ideas through discussion; conceptually moving between the big picture and the detail. It was fun to work fast, work smart and be proud of what we'd achieved; exactly what you want from an MBA programme."

Helen Rhodes, Management Subject Librarian, commented:
“The project was a welcome opportunity to provide a fresh perspective on library systems and processes from the students’ point of view. We were impressed with the thought that had gone into the report and glad to have been involved with such an enthusiastic group of students.”
The award was presented by BP’s Emma Judge and Hazel Burrows.  BP is a member of the School of Management’s Corporate Partners Scheme which enables organisations to work with the School and its students in a number of ways, such as prize sponsorship.
