Northern Society of Chartered Accountants

At the heart of northern business since 1882

ICAEW and Northern Society celebrate CFAB success at Newcastle University Business School 15 September 2013

The ICAEW and the Northern Society of Chartered Accountants (NorSCA) were delighted to share in the success of final year students who graduated from Newcastle University Business School this summer.

Over 500 talented students graduated from the Business School in July, and their success was celebrated during its annual undergraduate awards reception. This included the latest cohort from the Business School’s Graduate Diploma in Finance, Accounting and Business.  This is a 9 month programme developed in conjunction with the ICAEW and successful students can graduate with both an award from Newcastle University and the ICAEW’s CFAB qualification (Certificate in Finance, Accounting and Business).  The programme also includes a bespoke personal and professional skills module, developed with input from the ICAEW and local accountancy firms.  This module aims to develop the skills and abilities that students require to be successful in their future careers.

The students attended their graduation ceremony at the prestigious King’s Hall within Newcastle University’s Armstrong Building. Following their formal congregation, the students with their friends and families celebrated in style with a champagne reception and awards presentation.

The Northern Society of Chartered Accountants (NorSCA) and ICAEW were delighted to present two of the students with prizes:

  • Lija Broka was awarded the Northern Society of Chartered Accountants prize for best performance in the Personal and Professional Skills module; and
  • Danny Collin was presented with the ICAEW Learning and Professional Development Team prize for best overall performance on the programme.

President of NorSCA, Jeanette Brown said: “We are very pleased to have close links with Newcastle University Business School and to recognise the success of graduating students including those who have completed the Business School’s Graduate Diploma in Finance, Accounting and Business which includes attaining the ICAEW’s CFAB qualification. We were delighted to present the awards to Lija and Danny and we wish them all the best for their future careers.”

Newcastle University Business School’s Director, Professor John Wilson said: “The congregation ceremonies at the Business School are one of the highlight events for both students and our academics.  It gives us the chance to acknowledge the effort and achievements of our students during their time with us, and to congratulate them on their success.”
