Michelle Moran from Foxford, Co. Mayo has been awarded the GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Excellence in Human Resources Award. Michelle is a final year student of the Bachelor of Commerce in Human Resources at NUI Galway.

For over eight years, GSK has sponsored the annual Excellence in Human Resources Award at NUI Galway. Every year the top performing students in the Human Resources stream of the Bachelor of Commerce programme are invited to compete for this prestigious prize which includes a financial award and a three-month internship in the Human Resources department of GSK. Many of the previous prize-winners have been retained by GSK which has proven to be an excellent start to their professional career.

Dr Deirdre Curran, who manages the award for NUI Galway, said: “This internship represents a wonderful opportunity for our high performing students. A team of GSK managers and NUI Galway staff put all of the candidates through a rigorous assessment process which proves an invaluable learning experience to all of the students regardless of the outcome.”
