Hannah Merves, a member of the Harvard Business School M.B.A. Class of 2015, has been named winner of the School’s prestigious Dean’s Award. She will be formally recognized by HBS Dean Nitin Nohria at Commencement ceremonies on the HBS campus on Thursday, May 28.
Established in 1997, this annual award celebrates the extraordinary achievements of a graduating student or students who have made a positive impact on Harvard University, Harvard Business School, and/or broader communities. True to the M.B.A. Program’s mission, the recipient has also contributed to the well-being of society through exceptional acts of leadership. Nominations come from the HBS community. A selection committee comprising faculty, administrators, and students then makes recommendations to the dean, who makes the final decision.
“The Dean’s Award epitomizes the mission of Harvard Business School – to educate leaders who make a difference in the world,” said Nohria. “Hannah Merves has had a positive and lasting impact on the experiences of her classmates and on the community. We are delighted and proud to formally recognize all that she has accomplished.”
