ICMA Centre staff praised by the University

Professor Carol Alexander and Mrs Kim Mountford have received School Awards for Outstanding Contributions to Learning and Teaching 2009/10. These prizes are awarded annually by the University of Reading and reflect recognition by both students and colleagues of the valuable input made by staff at the University.

Professor Alexander, whose modules on the ICMA Centre's MSc programmes are consistently rated at close to 100% satisfaction by our students, commented: "My colleague's esteem really matters to me - this is a major benefit of the award."

Kim Mountford, whose empathy and understanding is widely appreciated by the students during the admissions process, says of the award: "I feel a great sense of enjoyment from supporting the students through the application process and I am thrilled and delighted to be chosen for this award."

The aim of this awards scheme is to recognise and reward individuals who have made significant, ongoing contributions to teaching and learning, either through direct interactions with students or through their support of teaching staff within the School. Dr Adrian Bell, School Director of Teaching and Learning, said: "At the ICMA Centre, we view each stage of the journey as equally important from applicant to alumni and these awards reflect this."

Learning from the Competition

ICMA Centre Visiting Fellow Dr Keith Arundale was featured in the November 2018 issue of the ICAEW’s Corporate Financier magazine. The article “Learning from the Competition” was based on Keith’s PhD research into the difference in investment practices of European and US venture capital firms and in their structural characteristics and the wider environment in which the firms operate, including cultural differences and attitudes to risk. Keith’s thesis is that these differences contribute to the lower historic performance of European VC funds compared to US VC funds.
