UNIVERSITY NEWS LAST UPDATED : 14 APRIL 2015
The Business School is celebrating after being recognised for their work by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICEAW).
The University has received the Partner in Learning accreditation from the organisation thanks to the high standard of its work.
The ICAEW is a world leading professional membership organisation that supports over 144,000 chartered accountants worldwide, providing qualifications and professional development. Staff will also be invited to attend a free higher education conference which is run each year by the organisation, along with a range of other benefits. The accreditation also means that University students will get to gain exemption from a number of ICAEW certificate and professional level papers.
Chris Turner, Senior Lecturer in Management Accounting, explains: "We have been awarded the Partner in Learning status thanks to the school meeting a number of targets set by the organisation. Thanks to the accreditation, the ICEAW will be sending student recruitment teams to the University to run careers and employability sessions."
