A Carrick-on-Suir, County Tipperary, student was presented with a prestigious award at the Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) School of Business 17th Annual Recognition of Awards Ceremony. 

Eimear O’Dwyer, who is studying the BA (Hons) in Accounting, was presented with the CIMA Management Accounting Prize.

In addition, a number of Tipperary students made the Dean’s List and were presented with certificates. The Dean’s List comprises approximately the top 5% highest performers in the school each achieving first class honours in their continuing studies.

One of these as Piltown’s Aoife Dunne, who is studying the Bachelor of Business (Hons) Economics and Finance with Chinese. 
Both Eimear and Aoife are past students of Scoil Mhuire, Carrick-on-Suir.

Altogether more than 60 School of Business students were recognised for their academic achievements during the 2018/2019 academic year at the event. The ceremony acknowledged continuing students' outstanding academic achievement in the previous year.

Recognition of student effort and excellence is something the School of Business continually does. These top performing students can influence others to achieve their potential as peer role models, and the recognition represents a mark of excellence to be included in the recipient's curriculum vitae.

The awards were called by the course leaders and presented by the Head of School (Dean) of Business Dr Thomas O'Toole.
