Aberdeen student wins best performance accolade sponsored by RSM UK
Leading audit, tax and consulting firm RSM UK has again sponsored a prize which recognises the best academic performance for students in Financial Accounting Stage 2 on the BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance degree programme at Robert Gordon University.
Second-year student Monica Gray from Westhill was awarded the prize, after achieving the highest overall score for both Financial Accounting Stage 2 modules. Monica’s achievement was celebrated during a presentation at RSM’s offices in Aberdeen, with office managing partner Andrew Forsyth presenting Monica with a £500 cheque, and RGU Course Leader Martyn Gordon also in attendance.
This year, Monica will be completing a year-long placement before starting her final year at university.
Andrew Forsyth, RSM’s office managing partner in Aberdeen, said: ‘Our partnership with Robert Gordon University is long standing and this award was established four years ago to support emerging young talent from a local institution as they prepare for a career in the profession or industry.
‘It was a pleasure to welcome Monica to our Aberdeen office to recognise her academic achievement following her excellent exam results. I wish her every success in her final year and in her career, I’m certain she has a bright future ahead of her.’
Monica said: ‘I am very proud to be awarded the top student accolade in Financial Accounting by RSM UK. I am grateful RSM UK has recognised and sponsored this achievement. I am also thankful to Robert Gordon University for providing me with learning opportunities and skills which will transfer to the real world.’
