University and students win recognition from Chartered Management Institute
Anglia Ruskin University has won two national awards, recognising the impact it is making on employability as well as the management and leadership skills of its students.
Anglia Ruskin received the Partner of the Year category at the Chartered Management Institute’s (CMI) inaugural Higher Education (HE) Awards. Student Jack Williamson, who is studying the BA Management and Leadership course run in conjunction with Barclays, also won the Student of the Year award.
Two other Anglia Ruskin students, Harry Pepper and Christian Mussard, were also finalists in the Apprentice of the Year category.
Institutions were judged by the impact they have made on student employability, professional development and enrichment of student experience. Shortlisted students all showed a high level of academic achievement as well as professional development in management and leadership.
Vanessa Knowles, Director of Corporate Programmes at Anglia Ruskin, said:
The awards were held on Thursday 21 February at the CMI’s annual HE conference in Bishopsgate, London.
