The Asper School of Business’s 2017-18 Commerce Students’ Association (CSA) has been named this year’s Most Outstanding Business Student Association by the Canadian Association of Business Students (CABS). The prestigious national award recognizes a business student association and its executive team that “execute to the highest level”.
CABS also awarded CSA President Matthew Thomson this year’s Executive All-Star – President Award.
The annual CABS Roundtable Conference gathers together top business student leaders from more than 30 universities across the country to share experiences and gain tools that help them take their student associations to the next level. This year’s conference took place in February 28 to March 4 in Windsor, Ontario.
Dr. Gady Jacoby, Acting Dean of the Asper School of Business, says both honours are well-deserved. “I have had the pleasure of working closely with Matthew and his team for most of their term as CSA Executive. I have been very impressed with their professionalism and the improvements they have accomplished for Commerce students. Each of them has been fully engaged in their individual responsibilities within the CSA Executive. They make the Asper community proud.”
“Both recognitions say great things about the Asper School,” says Thomson. “We truly are a hidden gem here in the prairies. It has been said that we ‘punch above our weight’ and I think that is absolutely true.”
