Dean's Medals for Academic Excellence

  • Only a small numer of Dean's Medals are awarded each year - fewer than 10 - to some of our top management graduates, based on their overall grade point average (GPA).
  • The final list of recipients is chosen through a rigorous and confidential selection process involving the Director of Academic Systems, the Academic and Accreditation Manager, the Qualifications Convenor, and the Director of Executive Education, and the Dean of Waikato Management School.
  • See here for the list of previous recipients of Dean's Medals.
