A decade of prizes from the Association of Corporate Treasurers
For the past nine years, the Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT) has awarded Warwick Business School undergraduate students with prizes for the best performance in Finance modules, and this year completes the decade.
Last week, James Lockyer, Director of Education at The Association of Corporate Treasurers, presented the prizes before giving a guest lecture. David Preiser, from Germany, won the prize for 'Finance 1: Financial Markets' and Vladimir Tsekov, from Bulgaria, won the prize for 'Finance 2: Corporate Finance'. Vladimir was also the best overall performer for the combined Finance 1 and Finance 2 marks. Both are currently in their final year at WBS, David studying for BSc Management, and Vladimir for BSc Accounting & Finance.
WBS course leader Dr Chendi Zhang said, "Once again, I am delighted to welcome James Lockyer to WBS. I know the winning students are very grateful to the ACT for their generous prizes. The ACT works to support and represent professionals working in the areas of treasury, risk and corporate finance, and it is in these areas where many of our students are hoping to make their careers."
As well as course leader Dr Chendi Zhang, Professor Peter Corvi, Associate Dean of the WBS Undergraduate Programme, and Dr Alex Stremme, module leader for Finance 1, were also present at the prize-giving and guest lecture.
