Distinguished Alumni Awards

Distinguished Alumni Awards

Each year, outstanding alumni from RSM are recognised for their excellent contribution to society or business, for admirable entrepreneurial spirit or for other equally prestigious qualities exemplifying distinguished leadership. The nominees for these RSM Distinguished Alumni Awards are chosen from our network of around 30,000 RSM alumni working in private, public and non-profit organisations worldwide.

Award nominations

We are proud to say that members of the RSM community, which consists of students, staff, faculty members and alumni have recently submitted a total of nine nominations, which are divided into the following categories: 

  • Business achievement: acknowledges alumni who have established corporate careers, demonstrating a solid record of achievements, and have shown that they lead by example while climbing the career ladder.
  • Social impact: honours alumni whose life’s mission is to improve the lives of others, or protect or improve the environment, and for those who have dedicated their business and management talents to serving society.
  • Entrepreneurial spirit: recognises alumni who have recently started their own enterprise, or who run established ventures that reflect excellent values of leadership, and innovative thought and action.

Award ceremony

A total of nine alumni have been nominated in the categories mentioned above. The award ceremony will take place during the annual RSM Leadership Summit in Rotterdam on Friday 7 October 2016.
