Ross Barclay, Director of MBAus and co-host of the GMA, said “We’re excited to be able to open nominations for the 2022 Graduate Management Awards, and thrilled to be able to present awards to this year’s winners in person at the Awards Ceremony in September.

“The quality of applicants in past years has been incredibly humbling, and I’m confident this year will see another fantastic round of nominations from MBAs across Australia, New Zealand, and the Australasian region.”

GMA 2022 winners will be in good company, including past winners Siobhan Coster (Innovation & Entrepreneurship Award 2021) who has recently raised $3m investment to commercialise her formula replicating breast milk protein, and Taylor Hawkins (Community Impact Award 2021), MD of Foundations for Tomorrow, recently participating in and facilitating multiple sessions at the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos earlier this month.

Nominations will close on Saturday 16th July, 2022.
