An Aberdeen university graduate has been recognised as one of the top MBA students in the world.
Dr Jenna Ross, from Robert Gordon University, has been shortlisted in the AMBA (Association of MBAs) Student of the Year Award – which is a global award that recognises the talents and contributions made by students.
Dr Ross is one of five nominees and the only one from Scotland – she is shortlisted among alumni from Hong Kong, Spain, Ireland and Bath (UK).
She studied at RGU’s Business School to turn her interest for science and farming into a business concept and graduated with distinction this summer.
