Brunel Business School amongst nominees for THE Leadership and Management Awards 2014

Brunel Business School celebrated being nominated for the Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards 2014 (THELMAs) last night at a Gala dinner at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane, London.


The nomination for the Outstanding Strategic Planning Team, a third nominations from the Times Higher Education in the last two years, was an honour to the School, showing recognition for our continuous effort in striving for excellence and making a change in Higher Education. The Business School has previously won the Times Higher Education Business School of the Year award in November 2013 and a nomination for the November 2014 awards has again been submitted.

The Outstanding Strategic Planning Team, a category for which the School has been nominated on this occasion,

“recognises the exceptional performance from a team which has made a significant and demonstrable impact on strategic change across the university. The judges looked for clear contributions to strategic planning, such as improvements to the evidence base supporting institutional decision-making, the development and implementation of change management programmes, or improvements to institution-wide operational processes in support of defined strategic objectives. The nominated teams were required to show how their work has influenced decision-making at a strategic level and explain the way in which clearly identified challenges have and will be met as a result of their work, and demonstrate that impact in a measurable way. ” as explained on THELMAs website.

While the School did not bring a trophy home from last night’s awards it has been a privilege to take part in the awards amongst excellent peers in the sector. The nominees for this category were:

  • Aberystwyth University
  • University of Bath
  • Brunel Business School
  • Loughborough University
  • University of Stirling
  • York St John University – winner of the Award
