The School of Business triumphed in the annual Golden Roses Teaching Awards (2017) which are student-led from nomination to presentation. This gives the students the chance to ‘give back’ by nominating in a variety of categories including – but not limited to – ‘Leading equality award’, ‘Postgraduate support’ and ‘Academic advisor of the year’.
The School of Business was shortlisted initially for two categories: ‘Lecturer of the year’ and ‘Course team of the year’. On the Golden Roses award ceremony evening, the School was absolutely delighted to win both categories!
