Students recognised nationally for leadership potential

Laura Jeffries, winner of the Westpac Banking, Insurance & Financial Services Award

Monash Business School students have been recognised for their leadership qualities at the annual Top 100 Future Leaders competition, sponsored by GradConnection, the Australian Financial Review and Chandler Macleod.

Marketing student Laura Jeffries received the Westpac Banking, Insurance and Financial Services Award – one of the seven awards given out – while a total of 11 Monash Business School students were selected as finalists.

The Top 100 Future Leaders competition recognises Australia’s top future graduate talents by providing them with the opportunity to experience the graduate recruitment process.

Laura was recognised for her ability to help other students find work and make business connections during the COVID-19 lockdown in Victoria.

Despite the challenges presented by lockdown, Laura’s work as President of the Monash Marketing Students Society helped students bridge the gap between university and 'the real world'.

The Monash Business School finalists were selected from a pool of thousands of students for their application skills, communication skills, personal branding, and leadership potential.

Congratulations to all 11 students for their achievements.
