Student Leadership Award
Student Leadership Award Plaque for Awardee

The ACBSP Student Leadership Award program is the only award of its kind awarded by an accrediting body for business schools. Participation in the program is optional, but we strongly encourage each of our member campuses to become involved. The criteria for the award is not determined by ACBSP, but is determined by the individual campus. ACBSP does require that the award be given to a student who is pursuing a degree in business. In some cases, the campus may wish to give more than one award per academic year, but this is not encouraged.

Some possible uses of the award include:

  • Present annually to the student leader of a student chapter on campus to recognize leadership excellence. Examples of student chapters include ENACTUS, Delta Epsilon Chi--DECA, or Phi Beta Lamba--FBLA, or a business honor society such as Delta Mu Delta, Sigma Beta Delta, or Kappa Beta Delta.
  • Present to a student using criteria developed by faculty or students or by the head of the business unit.
  • Selection is made solely by head of the business unit based on recommendations of others and his or her personal experience.
Student Leadership Award Plaque for Institution

We encourage each participating campus to honor their student recipient at a graduation or honor awards assembly, or in some other public fashion. The installation of a perpetual plaque on a wall in the business school allows the school is also encouraged, as this is visible evidence to all visitors that the business unit fosters and supports leadership within the student body, and allows high achieving students to be recognized long after they have departed the college.

ACBSP provides access to both the plaque that is given to the student and the larger perpetual plaque that remains on the wall of the business school with the name of a new recipient added each year. The cost to design and develop the plaques has been incurred by ACBSP and we have secured bulk pricing. Each business unit deciding to participate in this program orders directly from our supplier, Imagecraft. An order form is available through the links below. The listed price for ordering an individual plaque includes three lines of personalization for the individual plaque and an engraved plate for the perpetual plaque. Notification to ACBSP of your participation in the Student Leadership Award program is suggested, but not required.
