The 29th Annual School of Business Award Ceremony

From last year’s ceremony: Simeon Kawakami ‘12 receives the 2012 Wall Street Journal Award from Susan Phillips, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs. Kawakami now works in Transaction Advisory Services Valuations at Ernst & Young.

The sun is shining, the tulips are blooming and students are studying for finals.  All signs point to one thing:   It’s time to celebrate student initiative, community involvement and academic success at the Annual School of Business Awards Luncheon.  

School of Business students’ academic accomplishments and commitment to community service exemplify what is great about the University at Albany and in particular, the School of Business. This luncheon is one of the highlights of the year, reflecting the commitment of the faculty and the school to student excellence and success.
