After thorough review of all submissions, the jury decided the winners are:

- Mohamed Mustafa Ishak, University Utara Malaysia, also in the category of Institutional Management
- Mohamed Buheji from Bahrain in the category of Research
- Aigerim Kaumenova and Prof. Zhuldyz Yelubayeva, Almaty Management University, Kazakhstan in the category of Responsible Management Education
