Newry student celebrates academic and professional services
Newry woman Magdalena Ryan, a part time accounting student at the Ulster Business School, has been placed 1st in Ireland and 11th in the world in the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) exams in 2013.
Magdalena, who works for Envirogroup Ltd in Warrenpoint, excelled in the Taxation paper and was presented with the ACCA Special Achievement Award at the Ulster Business School’s Annual Student Awards in recognition of her success.
Speaking at the Awards ceremony Dr Gillian Armstrong, Head of the Department of Accounting, Finance and Economics said, “These Awards recognise the top performers across the range of Accounting, Finance and Economics related programmes, which although challenging, provide significant opportunities for students and graduates.
“The Ulster Business School prides itself on delivering courses which enable students to not only reach their academic potential but also allows them to experience the practical application and professional orientation of these areas.
“The fact that so many of our leading accountancy, consultancy and financial services firms are engaged with both the Awards and the learning experience at the Ulster Business School is testament to the importance of the integrated approach towards preparing students for careers across the business sector.”
A total of eighteen employer sponsored awards were presented. Sponsors included Ernst and Young, KPMG, CIMA Ireland, PwC, HSBC, BDO, Citi Group, CISI, Chartered Accountants Ireland, ACCA, CPA, Baker Tilly Mooney Moore, Henry Murray and Co. and ASM.
