School of Business shortlisted for THE award
Published on 14 September 2021
For the first year ever, the School of Business at the University of Dundee has been shortlisted in the “Business School of the Year” category.
Each year the Times Higher Education (THE) awards take place, showcasing and celebrating the very best of Higher Education across the UK and recognising the innovation and work delivered by its Universities.
For the first year ever, the School of Business at the University of Dundee has been shortlisted in the “Business School of the Year” category. A tremendous achievement for the School given its recent formal creation as an independent school at the University.
The successful submission highlighted several key developments during the 2019/20 year. This included the School’s commitment to the PRME agenda and the introduction of PRME principles into teaching. The commitment to teaching and students was a consistent focus throughout the submission, celebrating new opportunities for students including internships with Pagoda Projects and new student societies in business. Further partnerships with Al Maktoum College through the launch of Islamic Finance degrees and with the ACCA through the development of an innovative new Accountancy programme were also highlighted.
The awards take place in late November and win or not, this is a tremendous achievement for the School, the staff, students and Alumni.
THE editor John Gill said:
“This is the 17th year that the THE Awards will recognise the best of the best in UK higher education, across 20 categories covering all aspects of university activity. But this year’s awards will reflect a period of turmoil and innovation necessitated by the pandemic, making it quite unlike any previous year.
With almost 600 institutions, teams and individuals nominated, it really is a fantastic achievement to make it onto this year’s shortlist.
We look forward to celebrating the incredible response of university staff in exceptionally tough circumstances when we gather for the Oscars of higher education in November.”
