School awards highest number of prizes at this year's Graduation Prizegiving
The School of Management held its annual Graduation Prizegiving Ceremony on July 6th, a few hours before the official graduation ceremony took place at historic Bath Abbey.
27 students were awarded prizes this year, more than in any previous year.
Prizes were presented to the most successful graduates from the BSc in Business Administration (BBA), the BSc in Accounting and Finance (BAF) and the BSc in International Management and Modern Languages (IMML).
Each year, the prizes are sponsored by a range of companies, many of which work with the School of Management on a regular basis, providing work placements and projects as well as recruiting our graduates.
This year’s sponsoring companies were: Nationwide, Danone, Deloitte, L’Oréal, Zurich, BG Group, Accenture, Ernst & Young, BP and PricewaterhouseCoopers.
L’Oréal, Zurich, BP and PwC are all members of the School’s Corporate Partners Scheme.
The School was very pleased to welcome back two of its own alumni to present prizes; Ed Hamilton, who graduated from the BSc in Business Administration in 2010 and Cerys Anthony, who graduated from the MSc in Advanced Management Practice degree in 2010. Ed now works as an Analyst for BP Risk Manager and Cerys is an Analyst at Accenture.
Students, staff, friends and family gathered to listen to words of congratulation from the Dean, Professor Richard Elliott, followed by an invitation from Diana Braddock, Alumni and External Relations Manager, to take advantage of the School’s successful Alumni Network.
