In May, the outstanding achievements of students from the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics (TSBE) were recognised at an awards ceremony held at the University Club.
The prestigious TSBE Student Prize Awards are given to high-achieving students studying across a range of fields and are presented by industry partners from various sectors, including CPA Australia, UniSuper and Federal Group.
“These awards were created to bring students and industry together to celebrate and recognise the achievements of the next generation of business leaders,” said Interim Executive Dean of the College of Business and Economics Stuart Crispin.
“We are grateful for the support our industry partners have provided for these awards and look forward to acknowledging the efforts of the winners not just as students but as members of the business community.”
In a rapidly evolving business world, these awards aim to recognise and encourage the efforts of future business professionals who will need to be multiskilled and have a passion for continuous learning throughout their careers.
“The key to developing future business professionals is our educational institutions,” said CPA Australia Tasmanian General Manager Gina Gunn. “In Tasmania, it is the University’s TSBE which, together with industry partners such as CPA Australia, is shaping these professionals.”
“CPA Australia recognises the critical value of acknowledging high-performing students and has supported the TSBE Awards for many years.”
The CPA Australia Prizes are given to the top students in first year, second year, third year and postgraduate accounting units.
“The outstanding students receiving awards this evening will go on to make significant contributions to businesses and organisations in Tasmania and further afield,” CPA Australia’s Gina Gunn said.
The TSBE awards are presented to undergraduate and postgraduate students who have achieved the highest overall marks across several fields, including marketing, accounting, finance, and human resources.
The TSBE Awards have been running for several years but were postponed due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We’re excited to be able to bring the awards back to celebrate the achievements of our best and brightest students,” Associate Professor Crispin said.
