Achievement in Business Prize

Launched in 2015, the OUP Achievement in Business Prize is a brand new prize that gives lecturers the chance to reward students for their hard work and commitment.

The prize - £150 worth of OUP business books - is to be awarded to the student in your business department who has achieved the most or shown the greatest improvement over the course of the academic year.

How can my department claim this prize for one of our students?

1. Discuss with your colleagues how the Achievement in Business Prize would be best used within your department.
2. Choose your winning student.
3. Email us with the name of your winning student and a postal address at which they can be contacted - this can be the student's personal address or your departmental address.
4. We will contact you to confirm your nomination and write to the student to explain how they can claim their £150 worth of OUP books.

ExpandCloseFrequently Asked Questions

How do we choose our winner?
Winners are chosen entirely at the discretion of the individual department. The prize can reward achievement in project work or exams, or general improvement in studies. If departments prefer, the prize can be split between two exceptional students.

What will our winning student receive?
When you inform us of the name of the winning student we will write to them enclosing a certificate and a copy of our latest catalogue, along with a letter explaining how they can claim their prize. The student then selects books to the value of £150 which will be dispatched to them (or to the university if you would prefer to formally present the student with their prize).

Is there a deadline for nominations?
The prize is only awarded to each institution once annually, but your department is free to choose at what point in the academic year you make your nomination.
