Times Higher Awards 2019 – Open for nominations

The 2019 THE Awards are now open for submissions. The THE Awards are considered one of the flagship events of the sector, celebrating the achievements of outstanding individuals and institutions across a range of disciplines and categories. This year's Awards will also incorporate elements of the THE Leadership and Management Awards from previous years, providing even more opportunities to honour UK universities across a broad range of activity.

Among the 23 categories, some will be familiar, others have been merged and have a new focus. As always, of particular interest to members will be the 'Business School of the Year' category, which is an excellent opportunity to have your school's excellence and impact recognised, and was won last year by Chartered ABS member ESCP Europe. Nominated schools which meet the submission criteria will be assessed on:

  • evidence of exceptional performance against specific indicators such as innovation, teaching, research, student experience, alumni relations and development
  • evidence showing how the school’s work has impacted on business and/or society more generally
  • evidence of how the school has built partnerships with the business community and other organisations, bringing benefits to both sides
  • evidence showing why the schools stands out from the crowd in the competitive business school marketplace.

Judges will be looking for bold and creative strategies and initiatives that have helped the school to improve and flourish in the academic year in question. It is open to all business schools in the UK, including those situated within universities and those in the private sector.

Entries can be submitted for nomination between 11 April and 5 June 2019, with the shortlist to be published on 5 September. Entry guidelines and full details of all 23 categories can be found at www.the-awards.co.uk.

This year’s awards ceremony will take place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 28 November, and is the culmination of the two-day THE Live event, taking place at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel.
