A Whitehead student is celebrating a hat-trick of awards for her marketing skills.

Louise Foster, from Whitehead, who recently gained an MSc in Marketing from the Ulster University Business School, has been named Best Overall Student and Best Overall Global Marketing Student and also won the prize for the Best Dissertation.

The former Carrickfergus Grammar School pupil was presented with her awards at the Ulster University Business School’s Student Awards event organised by the Department of Marketing, Entrepreneurship and Strategy.

Speaking at the ceremony, Dr Danielle McCartan-Quinn, head of the department, said: “These awards recognise the top performers across the range of marketing, entrepreneurship and strategy related programmes.

“The Ulster University Business School prides itself on delivering courses which enable students to not only reach their academic potential but also allow them to experience the subjects through practical application. “The fact that so many of our leading private sector companies and professional bodies are engaged with both the awards and the learning experience at the Ulster University Business School is testament to the importance of the integrated approach towards preparing students for careers across the business sector.”
