Business School student shortlisted for Undergraduate of the Year Awards
Jesse Wilson studying Economics and Finance attended the recent TARGETjobs Undergraduate of the Year Awards ceremony in London.
With over 4,400 applicants from over 140 universities, five students from Exeter including Jesse were shortlisted as finalists for the different awards.
The awards, with 12 different categories, were launched four years ago, to identify and celebrate the UK’s best undergraduates in specific areas. The shortlisting process mirrors a graduate recruitment selection procedure, and includes online tests, interviews and assessments.
Exeter students were shortlisted across five different disciplines; a considerable achievement for such a high profile competition. Each of the undergraduates nominated attended the awards ceremony in Canary Wharf, London where Sir Trevor McDonald presided over the Awards ceremony.
