Over the last 18 months Bonar Yarns has been working with Abertay university to provide Marketing and Business students with live business assessments and various work experience opportunities, to help students understand the requirements of real business environments and markets; as well as providing insight into the manufacturing industry.
After deciding to take our partnership with the university one step further, back in March 2016, we opted to create a student prize within the Dundee Business School – providing additional support to students throughout their course and educational career. This particular opportunity was the first of it’s kind for Bonar Yarns and would be available to an undergraduate student studying the BA (Hons) in Marketing & Business.
Last month, on 29th October, it was announced that student Mr. K Kopsieker was awarded the Bonar Yarns Prize at the Universities annual prize giving ceremony. Mr. Kopsieker was awarded the prize due to his exceptional overall performance across his modules, throughout the second year of his full-time BA (Hons) Marketing & Business degree.
Congratulations! We’re absolutely thrilled to be able to support a local university such as Abertay, and to be able to reward a students hard work through a university prize. We look forward to working with Abertay University for the rest of the 2016/17 academic year.
Greatness is in the Detail
