The school has announced Sudeshna Singh and William Hughes as the 2020 recipients of the 2020 AGSM Baume et Mercier Academic Award which is presented to the top female and top male student from the AGSM Full-Time MBA class for academic excellence across their core courses.

Baume et Mercier has sponsored this award for the past five years and presented the recipients with an engraved Classima watch.

“Receiving the Baume et Mercier MBA Excellence Award is an honour,” Sudeshna said.

“It’s a symbol of the long nights of hard work, the unflinching support of my cohort during group assignments and efforts from my professors to ensure I kept learning.

William said of receiving the award, “I am truly grateful and humbled to be recognised by the AGSM and Baume et Mercier with this prize.

“Embarking on the MBA felt like such a momentous and intimidating step in my career, but now having completed it, I have never felt so confident in who I want to be professionally and the direction of my career.”

Both Sudeshna and William also acknowledged the consistent support and camaraderie from their entire MBA cohort and the AGSM team who made the past 16 months rewarding.
