Vivien Nagy, a second year Economics and Accountancy student at the University of Aberdeen Business School, has reached the final of the TARGETjobs Undergraduate of the Year Awards 2017, which takes place in London in April.
The awards aim to identify and celebrate the UK's best undergraduates and attract thousands of entries from universities across the UK. They are the only undergraduate awards in the UK that are widely recognised by graduate recruiters.
Vivien entered the Mathematics, Economics and Finance category, which is sponsored by energy giant Gazprom, and successfully underwent a series of challenging online exercises to test her communication and interpersonal skills.
She will now join nine other shortlisted candidates at the prestigious awards final in London. If successful, she will win an internship with Gazprom which will include a trip abroad to visit one of their international offices.
Vivien said: “It’s a great honour to have been selected for this award. I had the opportunity through Targetjobs to apply for the award and the University’s careers service was a great help in the application process. It was a challenging process to get through each of the rounds but I’m so pleased I’m now a finalist. No matter what happens the experience has been amazing, and I’m really looking forward to attending the award ceremony in London.”
