Every year the GBF selects two exceptional student leaders or teams to win the global GBF Leadership Awards: the Student Leadership Award (SLA) and the Responsible Leadership Award (RLA).

The winners are role models for student leadership and responsible leadership at the global level and have succeeded in making a significant impact within the graduate business community or society.

The GBF Leadership Awards will be bestowed at the 2021 Graduate Business Conference. The commemorative gala in honour of the GBF Leadership Awards finalists will take place on Saturday, May 29, 2021.

We look forward to receiving your nominations by the extended deadline Tuesday, April 27, 2021.
