The IRM Prize for the Best Overall Student on Risk Management Decisions 2022 at Nottingham University Business School
Best Overall Student won by Sokratis Christodoulou (Year 3 – BSc Finance, Accounting and Management)
The IRM, the leading global body for Enterprise Risk Management (ERM), has sponsored one of Nottingham University Business School’s student prizes. This year the winner was Sokratis Christodoulou, who is studying a BSc (Hons) in Finance, Accounting and Management, taking risk modules as electives.
Ian Livsey, CEO of the IRM, said:
“I’d like to congratulate Sokratis on his academic success. We have a long-standing relationship with Nottingham University Business School and it’s great to see the risk managers of tomorrow progressing on their path towards a successful career.
Risk management touches everyone who works in business and affects every department of the organisation. Risks can be both an opportunity and a threat and, in an increasingly volatile and uncertain world, risk management qualifications will arm the business leaders of today and tomorrow to make more informed decisions.”
Sokratis Christodoulou added:
"I would like to thank the university and the IRM for sponsoring this award. I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to study risk management in the past three years of my studies. Risk management is one of the more interesting subjects, persuading me to go the extra mile when it comes to effort, ultimately resulting in me receiving this award for outstanding performance.
Risk management is a very versatile tool applicable to many industries, sectors, occupations - and even in everyday life scenarios. These studies can greatly increase career opportunities in employment. Risk management has been evolving rapidly in many industries and is expected to evolve even more, especially in economies which are currently underdeveloped."
The IRM provides globally recognised qualifications and training, publishes research and thought leadership and set professional standards, which define the knowledge, skills and behaviours today's risk professionals need to meet the demands of an increasingly complex and challenging business environment.
