Students Receive Excellence Awards

Nine University of Ulster students have been recognised for their outstanding academic achievements at an award ceremony today at the Jordanstown campus.

The Department of Marketing, Entrepreneurship and Strategy’s Marketing Excellence Awards celebrate the skills, hard work and dedication of high achieving students from Ulster’s class of 2010/2011.

Head of the Department, Professor Rodney McAdam, said: “The ongoing support of our sponsors from the business community is a key part of the awards process and we express our thanks to them.

“The achievement of these winners is truly outstanding given the high levels of competition.

“It’s great to hear today how many of our former students are now in full-time employment.”

Shauna Mullan, from Carrickmore, County Tyrone, was awarded the Best Overall Final Year Student in the Marketing Institute of Ireland Award for Excellence.

She graduated with a First Class BSc Hons degree in Marketing with a Diploma in Industrial Studies following a placement in Hastings Europa Hotel. Since graduating Shauna has been appointed the role of Events Manager with Hastings Everglades Hotel, Londonderry.
