Pembroke Alumnus Tony McVeigh Awarded Oxford Saïd Worshipful Company of International Bankers’ Prize

17th November 2017

Pembroke alumnus, Tony McVeigh, who undertook a Postgraduate Diploma in Organisational Leadership at the Saïd Business School has been awarded the Worshipful Company of International Bankers’ (WCIB) Prize. This annual award is given to the best student dissertation related to finance, as judged by Oxford Saïd. The WCIB is a City of London Livery company which promotes development across the financial services profession and encourages high ethical and professional standards.

Tony who also graduated with a Distinction, commented: ‘I selected this programme because the banking sector is in the midst of profound change, characterised by discontinuity following the financial crisis. Leadership is central to the sector's ongoing transformation and this qualification has equipped me with essential knowledge and skills to tackle the challenges of my new role as a banking consultant.’

I am deeply honoured to receive this prestigious prize in recognition of my dissertation, which represents the pinnacle of my studies at Saïd Business School. Studying at Oxford was undoubtedly a life changing experience, reflecting the invaluable time spent with my cohort on the programme and the superb academic team led by my dissertation supervisor and programme director, Professor Sue Dopson.’

Pembroke congratulates Tony on his achievement and we wish him success in the future!
