UCD – The Acacia Prize 2016

by | May 12, 2016 | CSR, Facilities Management

We are in our fourth year sponsoring an award, called “The Acacia Prize” for the top student in the People at Work module as part of UCD’s B. Comm. degree in the School of Business. This degree has a long tradition at the forefront of business and management education in Ireland.  As always, 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 cycles, as well as the local, national, and transnational strategies and responses of management and labour.

The 2015 recipient of the “The Acacia Prize” for achieving first place in People at Work module is Laura Haddigan.  Laura is from Co. Wexford and is studying for a Bachelor’s Degree in Commerce International.

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