CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. — SAP AG today announced that Nazifa Subah, a Boston College freshman from Brooklyn, N.Y., has been awarded the Boston College Chief Executives’ Club of Boston Scholarship in honor of Bill McDermott, co-CEO and member of the Executive Board of SAP AG. Subah is a student in the Carroll School of Management with a concentration in Management & Leadership. She is heavily involved in extracurricular activities, including her school’s dance team, and has aspirations to one day become a CEO or successful entrepreneur.
“I am honored to be associated with this prestigious scholarship recognizing young talent. Business leaders and universities need to understand and unleash Millennials as the next generation of innovators,” said McDermott. “We must engage them early to fully embrace their dreams, encourage curiosity, teach leadership and give them purpose.”
The four-year scholarship was awarded to Subah in McDermott’s name in recognition of his exemplary leadership during an era when SAP experienced significant growth in market share, revenue and customer satisfaction. The scholarship was established in 2002 by Patrick T. Stokes, former President and CEO of Anheuser-Busch Companies and a University trustee and former chairman of the Board of Trustees.
