The inaugural Graduate Management Awards by the Graudate Management Association of Australia (GMAA), now MBAus, were held in Melbourne on 1 August 2019, conferring awards on three outstanding business professionals from across the country.
A chemical engineer, turned social entrepreneur, turned Global Shaper, turned consultant has been recognised as the country’s Most Outstanding MBA Graduate, with University of Queensland MBA graduate Bianca Goebel receiving the honour of the title. Other winners on the night included University of Wollongong’s Sriramprasanth Sivasubramani for Most Innovative Business Project and Dr Ryan Storr from Victoria University for the Most Outstanding Business Doctorate.
GMAA National President Maxwell Gratton said the awards were designed to recognise graduate excellence. “We want to shine a spotlight on the importance of graduate management and business administration qualifications generally, as well as the value of an MBA in particular,” he said.
