Every year, members of the Desautels community come together to celebrate the year’s recipients of the Desautels Management Achievement Awards (DMAA).
Recognizing exceptional leaders in business
The DMAA was established in 1979 by Neil Murdoch (BCom’81), Alan De Sousa (BCom’81) and Wayne Townsend (BCom’81). This event is organized annually by Desautels undergraduate students to honour business leaders who have made a significant contribution to society, both through their success in business and their community involvement. The event also provides an opportunity for students to network with industry professionals.
Winners are selected by the student Executive Committee members, Faculty members and alumni representatives. Past award winners come from a variety of industries and demonstrate outstanding leadership, entrepreneurship, ethics and corporate social responsibility - core values that capture the spirit of Desautels Management students.
