Muller Competition

The John H. Muller Jr. Business Plan Prize Competition awarded $5,000 to the Babson undergraduate individual or team that developed the best business plan for an entrepreneurial venture.

The Muller Prize was established in 1997 through the generosity of former Babson President William F. Glavin and Mrs. Glavin. It honored the entrepreneurial accomplishments of John H. Muller Jr. P'79, H'96, founder and former chairman of General Housewares Corporation and chairman of the Babson College Board of Trustees from 1989 to 1997.

The award originated in 1984, as the Philip Charm Prize, with a generous gift from Leslie Charm '64 in honor of his father, Philip Charm. The Muller Prize continued Babson's tradition of honoring outstanding student business initiatives through April 2011.
