The 30 Nominations


The 30 is a publication from the Haworth College of Business that recognizes emerging business leaders who are providing thought leadership and innovative perspectives in the business world. 

Like many publications highlighting business leaders, The 30 honors impact in the business world, and it also connects alumni with the college and one another through networking. 

If you know of an alum who should be included, or if you meet the criteria for The 30, then fill out our nomination form for the college's digital publication.


Submissions for The 30 are currently open for the class of 2025. The nomination form will be open until Friday, October 25.


Nominees must:

  • Have graduated from the Haworth College of Business in the past 10 years.

  • Have significant achievements through application of their business and leadership skills.

  • Have demonstrated a strong sense of vision for the future.

  • Have a minimum of two years of professional experience.

Please note: Business alumni may only be named to The 30 a maximum of two times. Applications for honorees who have met this limit will not be eligible for consideration.


A committee composed of faculty, staff and recent alumni will 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, strong evidence of achievement in several of the areas above will create a strong nomination.
