Winners of 14 prizes were joined by 29 College of Business students who achieved an A-minus average in all their papers and secured a place on the Dean’s List.
A special presentation was made to Dean’s Scholar and Bachelor of Business Studies student Jessica Fraser who achieved an average of A-plus in her first year papers. She was presented with an award by Massey University Chancellor Dr Russell Ballard at the ceremony in the museum building.
