Bain student impact award
Every year there are LBS students who go above and beyond in terms of improving the schooling experience for others. These selfless acts, while generally appreciated by many, are not necessarily always formally recognised. This is where the Bain Student Impact Award comes in.
The Bain Student Impact Award is an annual initiative designed to recognise students who have had a significant and lasting impact on life at LBS. This is a student award, where only students are given the opportunity to nominate other students who they believe have had the most impact at LBS.
Impact can take many forms. It can be through large scale activities such as organising a trek, running a conference, or developing a club. Or it could be more subtle – providing tutoring for peers, representing LBS at incoming student events, or being a mentor for other programmes.
Last year the award was jointly won by Nicholas Deakin (MBA2017) and Jack Wang (MBA2018). Nick was singled out for impact through the Out in Business club (including delivering the White Party and EurOut conference) and for being a strategy teaching assistant in the MiM programme. Jack was nominated for delivering SQL classes to members of the Tech & Media club, supporting the careers centre in the Amazon recruitment process, and being an influential member of the Board Games club.
This year, nominations close on Friday 27 April at midnight, after which nominees will be assessed by a working group comprising representatives from the Student Association and Bain & Company. A shortlist of ten will be determined, all of whom will be invited to a dinner with the Dean in May. At the dinner the winner will be announced and presented with a £2,000 prize cheque. Further updates will be provided as the process continues.
