The evening of Wednesday 4 November saw the School of Business, Economics and Informatics prizegiving ceremony move online.

High-achieving students from the Departments of Computer Science and Information Systems; Economics, Mathematics and Statistics; Management; and Organizational Psychology were joined by friends, family and their teachers and lecturers in a virtual ceremony to celebrate their success.

Dr Geoff Walters, Executive Dean of the School, opened the ceremony by emphasising the magnitude of what prize-winners have achieved this year. In the largest academic school at Birkbeck, in the midst of a global pandemic, this year’s prize-winners have demonstrated incredible resilience alongside their academic ability.

Reminding guests that Birkbeck was the only university in London to continue teaching during the Blitz in World War Two, Dr Walters expressed his pride in Birkbeck’s enduring mission to provide people with access to an education that would transform their lives.
