Student shines

Lim was awarded the Ernst & Young Best MBA Dissertation Award 2004/2005.

THE UNIVERSITY of Nottingham again proved its mettle in teaching, learning and research when one of its top students recently won industry recognition for her efforts. 

CIMB Berhad’s investment banking associate director Agnes Lim Geok Ching, who pursued her MBA at the Malaysia campus, was awarded the Ernst & Young Best MBA Dissertation Award 2004/2005.  

This is the fourth year the award has been given to a Nottingham University student.  

The award – a cash prize and plaque – was presented by Ernst & Young executive director Mazlan Kamaruddin.  

Lim’s dissertation was entitled Residual Income versus Earnings: Which Measure is More Associated with Shareholder Creation?  

“I felt motivated to research this area because increasingly, there is emphasis on shareholder wealth creation in Malaysia and interest in value-based measures for it. A good performance measure is seen as one which is also a good barometer of shareholder wealth creation,” said Lim.  

Lim’s dissertation supervisor Assoc Prof Salleh Hassan explained that the dissertation, which was awarded a distinction, had exceeded the expectations of an MBA-level dissertation in terms of quality, the amount of data collected, depth of analysis and topical nature of the area researched.
