Accounting for Good is proud to support the second year of a business degree designed specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander professionals, by offering a prize for the top student in the UTS Business School program.
The Bachelor of Business Administration (Indigenous) covers the core functions of business administration, including accounting, finance and management. It is taught in residential mode, where students attend classes at UTS for three six-day blocks per semester as part of their studies. This gives students the flexibility of studying while continuing to work and balance other responsibilities.
Glenn Murray, AFG senior Client Manager, was at the Awards at UTS this week (15 June 2017) to present the prize, which includes a financial contribution. The very happy winner was Heather Close - a proud indigenous woman who lives in Narooma on the far south coast of NSW. Heather buses up to UTS for 3 week blocks of study - the ride takes all day. Heather aims for High Distinctions in all her subjects. One of her teachers told Glenn: "She scored 100% in one Finance subject. We just don't give out scores of 100%"
Heather thanked AFG for the Award.
