Top performing Accounting and Finance students at Stirling Management School were recognised recently at the division’s annual prize giving lunch.

Prizes for undergraduate students are provided by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS) and by international accounting firm, KPMG. The prizes are awarded to students based on the best performance in Auditing and External Reporting modules.

Fourth year student Miss Kirsty Wallace was awarded the prize from KPMG for her performance on the Auditing module. Forth year student Miss Lauren Cameron was awarded the prize from KPMG for her performance on the Advanced Financial Accounting module. Second year student Mr Savvas Kalopetrides was awarded the prize from KMPG for his performance on the External Reporting module.

One other student was awarded a prize but was unable to attend due to a University sporting event; Robert Leck was top performing student on Accounting I and Accounting II- sponsored by ICAS.

The Accounting and Finance Division places great emphasis on links with the Accounting profession and the professional accounting bodies. Professor Ian Fraser from the Accountancy and Finance Division said, “We are very grateful to both KPMG and ICAS for funding these prizes awarded to some of our outstanding students. The Accounting and Finance Division particularly values its connections with both accounting firms and the professional accounting bodies; these links contribute to ensuring that we are fully aware of current developments affecting the profession and that our curricula are fully up-to-date and ‘cutting-edge’.”
