Eoin McKillop, a former pupil at Loreto College, Coleraine, has won a top award at the annual Ulster University Business School’s Student Awards event organised by the Department of Accounting, Finance and Economics.

Eoin, who is currently studying for an MSc in Financial Services, was presented with the Alumni Fund Award for being the best first year undergraduate student.

Speaking at the Awards ceremony Professor Gillian Armstrong, Head of the Department, said, “These Awards recognise the top performers across the range of Accounting, Finance and Economics related programmes which provide increasing opportunities for graduates. Our aim in the Business School is to prepare our students and optimise their learning experience with a clear focus on their future careers. We do this by working in close partnership with a wide range of employers to ensure that our courses are relevant and that the talents and skills we are nurturing are appropriate.

“The fact that so many of our leading accountancy, consultancy and financial services firms support these Awards is testament to that invaluable integrated approach.”

Over twenty employer sponsored awards were presented.
