A ceremony was held recently in WIT to acknowledge the excellence of Business School students in the field of taxation. Two specific prizes were awarded. The first went to John Kehoe from the BA (Honours) in Accounting who won first prize among students in this group.
The prize was sponsored and presented by Aidan McAvinue FCA who runs his own practice in the Brasscock Centre, Waterford and is himself an alumnus of the WIT Business School. John Kehoe has been offered a contract to train as a Chartered Accountant with PricewaterhouseCoopers who are one of the "Big 4" firms of accountants globally. As part of his training contract, John will undertake the Master of Business in Accounting programme in WIT starting in September.
The other prize went to John Green who achieved the best taxation results from the Bachelor of Business (Honours) class. This prize was sponsored by the Irish Taxation Institute, the leading professional body in the country for taxation professionals. This prize was presented by Ger Long, the Head of Department of Accounting & Economics in WIT and himself a member of the Irish Taxation Institute.
