Mark Paganin, member of the WA Chapter of the Harvard Club of Australia reports that Harvard Business School was awarded the "Best Business School in the North American Geographical Category" by Eduniversal at the Gala Dinner, Government House in Perth last night, Monday 28 November.
As background, Eduniversals surveys 1,000 Deans of Business Schools globally for its annual awards and then announces the top three Business Schools in each of the nine geographical regions. At the end of the ceremony, the top three Business Schools in the world were announced, and Harvard Business School placed third. Out of interest, INSEAD was second with Copenhagen Business School (which also won the best Business School in Western Europe) being the winner.
Mark represented Harvard Business School on behalf of Justin Greiner, HCA President and made a short acceptance speech. There were approximately 250-280 in attendance at the black tie event which was very well co‑ordinated and run by the French based, Eduniversal. Curtin University of Western Australia is hosting the Oceania Conference this week for Eduniversal. There are representatives from 49 Business Schools at the Conference, many of whom attended last night's dinner.
