Integrated Business Excellence Awards
In the Integrated Business (IB) program, you work closely with each other and your instructors which gives you intimate knowledge of the skills and talents of your IB colleagues. The IB Excellence Awards provide you the opportunity to recognize those talents. To nominate IB students and faculty for the IB Excellence Awards, please complete and submit the survey (linked below). The survey will close at midnight on Sunday, April 21st and the winners will be announced at the IBPA Banquet on the evening of Tuesday, April 23rd.
There are eight awards, seven for students and one for faculty, that are described in the eight questions of the survey. You can nominate only one fellow IB student for each award and only one faculty member for the faculty award, but you do not have to nominate someone for every award. Students and the faculty member who receive the most nominations will be recognized at the IB Banquet held near the end of the spring semester. Please complete this survey only once this semester.
Thank you very much for your help in recognizing IB students and faculty who have contributed to the success of all of us in the IB program.
