Congratulations to our Winter Prizewinners and Graduates - Class of 2020

— 05.02.20

by Caroline Foster

We hosted a Winter Prizegiving and Thank You event in the prestigious Firth Hall to celebrate our highest achieving January 2020 Management School graduates.

There was a fantastic atmosphere at this special event, which we shared with students, graduands and their families to celebrate the outstanding achievements of just some of the Management School’s students.

Among the prizes awarded this winter was the first Postgraduate Dean’s List Award presented by Professor Rachael Finn, the Dean of the Management School. We saw prizes presented to the Top Performers in each degree programme, announced by Andrea Ward, Associate Dean for Learning and Teaching; as well as the school’s memorial prizes including the Geoff Sykes Prize, Professor Josephine Maltby Prize, Fretwell-Downing Prize, and Professor Tony Lowe Prize. Our sponsored prizes were awarded from Pearn Kandola and from professional bodies including the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), Chartered Institute of Logistics and Supply (CIPS) and the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT).

We also celebrated this year’s Doctoral success and the contributions of our Postgraduate Student Representatives and Ambassadors.

“Personally, being included on the Dean’s List was important to me because it was the recognition of my contribution to the community, the development of my skills, and my academic performance. I hope this can inspire others to do more for others while achieving academic excellence.”

Ivan Miguel Hernandez Morales, 2020 Postgraduate Dean's List Winner

Following a presentation ceremony and photographs, our prizewinners celebrated with their friends and families over food and drinks. This was a joyful way to recognise the wonderful achievements of our students during their time at Sheffield University Management School.

We wish all our Winter 2020 graduates every success as they forge ahead in their careers and look forward to hearing about their continued success!
