Champagne and Celebration at the ICMA Centre

With record student numbers this year the students did not disappoint with results. The Centre was spoilt for choice in awarding its annual MSc and BSc Academic Achievement Awards. Due to the outstanding achievement of three MSc students, all three were awarded the achievement prize of £250: Xi Chen, Mary Jane Chiong and Indrajeet Mohite. The BSc Class of 2010 presented a wealth of high achievers with a third achieving Firsts, but the prize of £500 went to Anthony Beevers who graduated top of the class.

Awards didn't stop there, the annual Vetiva Prize for Best Graduating African Student was bestowed on MSc student, Olayemi Olukayode. The £1000 prize was established by one of the ICMA Centre's alumni, Dr Olaolu Mudasiru, who is now Deputy Managing Director of Vetiva Capital Management Limited in Nigeria. Dr Musasiru, said of the prize:

"We hope that Vetiva's undertaking to recognise and modestly reward excellence will be a contributing factor in motivating individuals to reach within and bring out the very best that they have on the inside."

Mr Olukayode had even more reason to smile when it was announced that a job offer came along with the prize this year.
