Financial students cash in
20 July 2012
Glasgow's International Financial Services District (IFSD) has rewarded four city students for getting top marks in their final exams.
The four financial services students - one from each of Glasgow's universities - were presented with a certificate and £500 to recognise their efforts.
The students were: Michelle Wright who achieved a first class honours degree in Finance, Investment and Risk from Glasgow Caledonian University, Nguyen Dang Khoa who completed a Masters degree in International Finance at Glasgow University, Julie Alexandra Wilson who achieved a first class honours degree in Finance from the University of Strathclyde and Maria Anne Hanlon who has completed the 2nd year of an Accounting degree at the University of the West of Scotland.
Tom Turley, deputy director of Development and Regeneration Services at Glasgow City Council, said,
"These awards recognise the great work being done by the universities in Glasgow and the relationships they have with the financial services sector to ensure a steady pipeline of well qualified graduates to work in the industry.
"The awards also recognise the breadth and depth of talent graduating from these universities which is, we believe, very reassuring for existing financial services companies in the city and prospective inward investors."
