The York Management School Garden Party
The sun came out to help The York Management School celebrate the end of another successful academic year.
Notable events include one of our alumni Sara Davies being awarded an MBE for services to the economy; a student team from the MSc Global Marketing programme won the L'Oreal Brandstorm national marketing competition and made it through the global finals in Paris; our Dean, Professor Bob Doherty is the Principal Investigator of a successful BBSRC grant and has been awarded £2.8M for a project entitled IKnowFood; one of our postgraduate students Lucio Longo won Intern of the Year. We also had success at the Target Jobs Undergraduate of the year awards with Lewis McDowell winning Male Undergraduate of the Year and our School Manager, Yvonne Ablett, was runner up in the Chartered Management Institute's Women in Management Excellence Award.
Families joined staff to celebrate these and many other successes throughout the year.
The Garden party also served as an opportunity to kick start a year of celebrations to mark the School’s 10 year anniversary from September 2016. More news to follow about activities and events planned during this year.
