Annual Scholarships, Prizes and Bursaries Evening 2014

Alumni Notice Board, Arts and Social Sciences News, City Future Fund, City News, Events, Health Sciences News, Law News, Mathematics, Computer Science & Engineering News, New Courses and Scholarships , , , .

Scholarship-Awards-Ceremony-2014One of the most enjoyable events in our academic year, according to the Vice-Chancellor of City University London Professor Paul Curran, is the ‘Annual Scholarships, Prizes and Bursaries Evening’.

The event brought some of our most outstanding students together with some of our most generous and committed donors in an evening filled with emotional thank you speeches and a warm family atmosphere.

The purpose of the evening was to formally recognise the students who have received these awards and to also say thank you to the individuals and organisations that have generously funded them.

Deborah – Fay Ndlovu, who received the Wellcome Trust Scholarship and is finishing her MA in Science Journalism, gave a truly inspirational speech about her academic and personal journey and thanked the Trust for supporting her. She highlighted the importance of facing challenges in order to re-discover her own abilities, and also how she will be going back to her hometown in South Africa as a ‘new woman’.

Deborah said “I have acquired a diverse set of skills through this course and renewed my confidence in my career and myself. I have learnt through my time at City that an academic institution isn’t just designed to equip students with professional skills but can build their personality as well.”

“Thank you to the Wellcome Trust and to all of you donors who have allowed me and all the students here tonight to see that, paraphrasing actress Lupita Nyo’ongo, ‘No matter where I am from – and what my past is – my dreams are valid’

Students who benefited from the City Future Fund Scholarship and Travel Bursary Scholarship were Duc Hoang, Zoe Rinaldi, Justyna Wolczyk, Zahra Abdollahi, Karthik Budidha and Natalia Grincheva.

City University London would like to thank all the institutions, charitable foundations, Livery companies and individual donors who have made these scholarships, prizes and bursaries possible. Your support enables the University to recognise outstanding academic performance and continues to help us attract the most able students. Learn more about supporting our students.

Cass launches new MSc in Global Supply Chain Management

Business School Stories, New Courses and Scholarships.

The one-year programme, which starts in September 2014, will equip students with theoretical and practical supply chain knowledge as well as professional and personal skills.

Unlike other programmes of its kind, the course focuses on developing students’ analytical and consulting skills, as well as their understanding of supply chain and operations management.
Course director for the MSc in Global Supply Chain Management, Dr Byung-Gak Son of Cass Business School, said: “Consulting skills are highly valued across a range of sectors, especially in the banking industry where there is a growing demand for supply chain finance specialists.

“While many courses focus on supply chain operations, this course aims to develop graduates with strong strategic supply chain knowledge as well as advanced analytical and consulting skills.

“Graduates of this programme will be well positioned for a career in the management consulting industry, which employs more than 80,000 consultants in the UK alone.”

Among the topics covered are strategic supply chain, operations management, global procurement, business sustainability and accounting and finance.

Modules offered on the course include supply chain analysis, international finance, research design, quantitative business analysis and consulting skills for Global Supply Chain Management.

“To help students develop specialist skills in consulting, the course exposes them to the tools and techniques they need to analyse empirical data and draw reliable conclusions,” Dr Son added. “It also encourages them to develop the project management, communication and presentation skills required to deliver consultancy projects.”

The course will rely on interactive teaching methods, lab-based sessions and case studies to help students understand the complexities of managing global supply chains. Students will learn to apply their knowledge to real life problems faced by companies.

The design and content of the course reflects the needs of the marketplace and the research activity of Cass’s world-renowned faculty.

Graduates are expected to apply for a variety of roles in procurement management, supply chain consultancy or specialist finance positions in the banking and insurance sectors.
