A committee composed of faculty, staff and recent alumni evaluate the nominations (with names redacted), using a holistic scoring method, looking for evidence of the following:
- Significant accomplishments in the business world since graduation (maximum of 20 points)
- Meeting or surpassing milestones—corporate or external recognition of efforts (maximum of 10 points)
- Community involvement and vision in regard to service (maximum of 10 points)
Up to 10 additional points will be awarded based on the panel's overall impression of the materials (completeness and strong narrative as to why this person is worthy of being honored).
While each nominee may not excel in each of the above areas, evidence of achievement in several of the areas above will create a strong nomination.
