(September 23, 2013) -- Management Magazine, a Simmons School of Management publication produced by master's students in a course offered in the Communications Management Program, on September 21st was named as a winner in the 30th Gold Circle Awards program of the Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA). CSPA is affiliated with the Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University.
From a total of 12,847 entries from newspapers and magazines produced by students at colleges, universities, and secondary schools throughout the United States, the magazine was awarded in two of 34 magazine categories, "Overall Design: Specialty Magazine," for which the publication received a Third Place Award, and "Informational Graphics," for which it received a Certificate of Merit.
Professor of Practice Dr. Richard L. Cravatts, consulting faculty editor Janice O'Leary, and consulting faculty design director Jane N. Hayward advised the student team. The magazine has been produced twice yearly as part of coursework in an MCM course, Magazine Publishing, and has been published three times since its founding.
"The School of Management was already very proud of the student team who produced the first issue of Management Magazine and received two of the CSPA awards last year," said Dr. Cravatts, "and this second set of awards affirm for us exactly what a superb job the team continues to do in producing the publication. As they will eventually do as managers of communications for various organizations, the MCM students who wrote and edited this issue were interested in telling the 'brand story' of the School of Management, making what is taught and researched and learned here accessible, engaging, and relevant."
