Distinguished alumni recognised for business, entrepreneurial and social achievements

Distinguished alumni recognised for business, entrepreneurial and social achievements

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 34,000 RSM alumni working in private, public and non-profit organisations worldwide.

Meet the 2017 Award Recipients

Award nominations

Members of the RSM community, which consists of students, staff, faculty members and alumni, submitted the nominations in three categories:

  • 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.
  • Business achievement: acknowledges alumni who have established corporate careers, demonstrating a solid record of achievements, and have shown that they lead by example by being a force for positive change while climbing the career ladder.

The election process  

The RSM community had the chance to vote for their preferred candidates through the online voting page.  At the same time, a jury, made up of former DAA recipients also casted their votes.

Award ceremony

The award ceremony will take place during the annual RSM Leadership Summit in Rotterdam on the first Friday of October.
