In its 12th year, the Bahamas Financial Services Board’s (BFSB) program to recognize an outstanding graduating student from within the School of Business, College of The Bahamas, is now entering its final stages ahead of this year’s awards ceremony.

The initiative has been a joint venture, with a Working Group and Selections Committee comprising representatives from the BFSB-spearheaded Professional Industry Association Working Group (PIAWG), the college and the Central Bank of The Bahamas.

A subgroup from the college retains responsibility for submitting the initial list of candidates, based on established criteria such as GPA along with college and community involvement.

The Industry Selections Committee is responsible for interviewing each of the short-listed candidates, with final scoring based on these interviews and a written submission.

The recognition program is part of BFSB’s Financial Services Industry Excellence Programme, which also profiles outstanding professionals and executives within the sector.

The student award is an investment account, complete with investment management services.  BFSB is pleased to announce that the Association of International Banks & Trust Companies in The Bahamas (AIBT) along with Societe Generale Private Banking have come on board again this year as sponsors of the award, with CFAL again managing the investment account.

The interviews and judging are in the final stages now, with the 2013 Student of the Year slated to be announced for the first time at BFSB’s 2013 Industry Awards Gala Dinner, scheduled for November 1 at the Sheraton Nassau Beach Resort.
