CIMA Prize awarded to DCU Accounting and Finance Students
On 13th October 2015, CIMA’s Student Recruitment Executive, Dr. Christopher Flood came to DCU Business School to present a joint prize to two BA in Accounting and Finance students, Brian Marsh and Mark Millar, who obtained the highest aggregate mark in the two second year Management Accounting modules, Management Accounting: Cost Systems (AC223) and Management Accounting: Planning and Control (AC224).
Through these particular modules students develop an understanding of the role and importance of management and cost accounting within an organisation, enhancing their ability to record, prepare, analyse, interpret, critically evaluate and use cost data for planning and control. Students also develop an awareness of actual management accounting practice and an interest in emerging issues in management accounting. DCU Business School is proud of its ties with industry and professional bodies and are delighted to be have CIMA present this prize.
We also welcomed the presentation immediately afterwards by Dr Christopher Flood on CIMA as a career and by Dr. Ruth Mattimoe, CIMA Advocate at DCUBS, to the MSc in Management (Business) stream and MSc in Management (Strategy) stream students on the recent award of significant exemptions from the CIMA exams. The event attracted great interest from these students.
