UCD – The Acacia Prize

by | Apr 2, 2014 | CSR, Facilities Management

We are in our second year sponsoring an award, called “The Acacia Prize” for the top student in the People at Work module as part of UCD’s Bachelor’s Degree in the School of Business.

It is a challenging module for the students as it requires them to engage critically with the material so the winner has done considerable work in order to achieve the highest marks. The module considers who works, what workers do, and what it’s like to work. These and other issues are considered in the context of the major influences on the world of work, including globalisation, differing forms of capitalism and their governance, European integration, economic crises, as well as the local, national, and transnational strategies and responses of management and labour.

The 2014 recipient of the “The Acacia Prize” for achieving first place in the Second Commerce People at Work module is Aoife McDonough. Aoife is from Stillorgan in Dublin and is studying for a Bachelor’s Degree in Business and Law.

Congratulations to Aoife and we wish her every success in the remainder of her studies in UCD.
