Middlesex student Raymond Asumadu, who is studying for a BA in Human Resources Management was selected as runner-up this year in a nationwide competition run by Business, Management Accounting and Finance (BMAF). The competition challenged students to address this question: How will I use my learning to become a ‘graduate with impact’?
The BMAF looks for bright, enthusiastic students who are able to describe their experiences of studying and how they intend to make an impact with their experience.
Raymond’s entry to the competition was an essay that detailed his personal achievements at Middlesex, and outlined the positive ways that the Business School has enhanced his learning and helped him achieve his goals.
Julie Haddock, lecturer in HRM and Raymond’s mentor said: “Raymond's achievement is absolutely fantastic. He was able to clearly articulate and demonstrate how his experiences at Middlesex University and the Business School have enabled him to become a graduate with impact.
Raymond drew on his experience of a range of activities, including the opportunities created by the Middlesex University Mentoring Network, his role as Student Representative and a course module in Personal Effectiveness.
As Raymond's mentor I am extremely proud of him. His positive approach towards his learning experience and the opportunities available brings credit to the Business School and the University.”
Richard Atfield, Assistant Director of the BMAF Subject Centre visited the Business School to award Raymond with his prize and certificate. And in addition to Raymond’s individual achievement, the Business School was also presented with a certificate to recognise the positive learning environment that Raymond described in his essay.
