Throughout the years, the Lok Jack GSB has been the recipient of many awards at the annual ACTT Quality in Tertiary Education (QuiTE) awards, reassuring stakeholders of the school´s commitment to excellence and relevance. Other indicators of the School’s quality are the recognition of its programmes and performance of its students.
The Lok Jack GSB belongs to an elite group of schools who have volunteered to put themselves through the most rigorous test of quality and have been successful. Putting their students in the spotlight for the world: In January 2017, Shelly Balkisson, a student of the MBA in International Trade, Logistics and Procurement programme, received high commendation as a finalist of the MBA Student of the Year award at the yearly AMBA awards function.
