Satchit Sagade, who graduated with Distinction from the MSc International Securities, Investment and Banking, and Daniel Osborn on the BSc International Securities and Investment Banking, both received the £500 prize for achieving the highest grades for their corresponding degrees.
There was also an added reason for celebration and recognition as Satchit not only gained the highest grade out of all those in his year, but also the highest ever seen on record from an ICMA Centre MSc student.
Satchit said of his winning the award ?I am really delighted to receive this award. I have thoroughly enjoyed the past 9 months at the ICMA Centre and I think coming here for my MSc has been one of the best decisions of my life. I would like to thank all the professors, researchers and the support staff for this."
The pair were awarded the prizes at the ICMA Centre's Graduation on 2nd July 2009.
