Over 500 talented students graduated from the Newcastle University Business School in July, and their success was celebrated during its annual undergraduate awards reception. 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.

Northern Society of Chartered Accountants (NorSCA) and ICAEW were delighted to present two award prizes, which were both won by Juan Yoshiyuki Suarez Tagaki. He was awarded:

  • the Northern Society of Chartered Accountants prize for best performance in the Personal and Professional Skills module; and
  • the ICAEW Learning and Professional Development Team prize for best overall performance on the programme.

Andrew Jackson FCA, President of Northern Society said: “We have had close links with Newcastle University Business School for some time now and we are pleased to again be recognising 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 Juan and we wish him all the best for his future finance career.”

Juan Yoshiyuki Suarez Tagaki said: “This Diploma gave me the unique opportunity of changing my career path at a later stage than I had anticipated. Before undertaking this course I was really at a loss as to what I would do with my professional life. However, I felt that this programme has provided me with excellent guidance, structure and practical knowledge within the field of accountancy. With the support of this programme I have also secured a graduate job in audit at KPMG London. I am very excited for this new challenge and thanks to the strong foundation received from the course I feel much more confident in beginning my new career.”
