Annually at the Gala of Excellence, the Telfer School of Management recognizes exceptional alumni who have achieved great things in their careers. Here are the awards and medals that are given out:
Young Achiever’s Award
The Young Achiever's Award was created to honour the individuals (under 40) who have been able to achieve greatness in their lives within an exceptional period of time.
Nominate an Alumnus or Alumna for an Award
If you know an alumnus or alumna whose efforts deserves to be recognized, nominate them for an award.
There is no shortage of exemplary alumni at the Telfer School of Management. In 2018, Sarah E Downey (MHA 1992), Debbie Fischer (MHA 1979) and Deanna Monaghan (BCom 1993) were awarded the Trudeau Medal for their leadership, initiative and contributions made not only to the world of business and health care but to their communities and alma mater. Gabriel Bouchard-Phillips (BCom 2005) was recognized with the Young Achiever’s Award for his personal and professional achievements in an exceptional period of time.
This is your chance to tell us about a Telfer alumna or alumnus that you feel is deserving of our Alumni Awards. Details on the two award categories, as well as the nomination form can be found below.
The nomination period opens on January 30, 2019. These recognitions will be awarded at the next Gala of Excellence, in Ottawa, on October 19, 2019.
Established in honour of Reverend Father Roland Trudeau, OMI, and former director of the University's commerce department from 1950 to 1965, the Trudeau Medal is the highest honour given by the Telfer School of Management to its alumni.
The Young Achiever's Award honours young Telfer School of Management alumni (under the age of 40 at the time of the Gala) who have been able to achieve greatness in their lives within an exceptional period of time.
The awards selection committee is composed of representatives from the Telfer School, the Telfer School of Management Alumni Association, the MBA Alumni Association, the MHA Alumni Association and the Executive MBA Alumni Association.
The deadline for nominations is April 15, 2019 at 12 p.m.
