The Fuqua School of Business Alumni Award for Exemplary Service
Established in 1991 to recognize individuals who demonstrate their dedication to Fuqua by donating their time, energy, talents, or financial support and who build networks through class activities, regional programs, and initiatives within their corporation, and service to current students and faculty. Award recipients have led by example in showing others how to strengthen the bonds between the school and its alumni and corporate partners.

The Fuqua School of Business Alumni Impact Award
This award was established in 2001 to recognize and honor individuals or teams who have bettered the school by investing their time and energy on a specific project for the school. Award recipients’ commitment to Fuqua is demonstrated by their willingness to work out unique solutions to create positive outcomes, and to take initiative to benefit the Fuqua community with their time, energy, and talents.

The Fuqua School of Business Leader of Consequence Award
The Leader of Consequence Award was established in 2012 to recognize alumni whose exemplary professional accomplishments are matched by the significant positive social or environmental change they have created.
