MBA Alumni Award

The MBA Alumni Award is an award established in honour of our esteemed alumni, who serve as vital ambassadors for our MBA program. Alumni play a pivotal role in championing our program by not only attracting prospective students but also enriching it through the sharing of their invaluable successes and experiences.

In commemoration of the 20th anniversary of our MBA program, we have initiated this endowment fund to perpetually support deserving students, particularly those demonstrating financial need. This scholarship serves as a testament to the enduring commitment of our alumni community to fostering excellence and opportunity within our program. Alumni are warmly encouraged to contribute to this endowment fund through charitable donations, thereby strengthening the fund and expanding the impact of this award. Through their generosity, alumni can significantly enhance the educational journey of future MBA students, enabling them to pursue their academic and professional aspirations when encountering financial limitations.
