Marc Couturier, an MGE graduate (2013) from our Reims campus, has received first prize from the APDC (Association of Professionals and Directors of Accounting and Management) for the best Master’s Dissertation in Accounting, Control and Auditing, presented during a ceremony held on the premises of the CNAM in Reims on 11 December.
Marc Couturier wrote his dissertation, entitled "Have the adoption of the 2002 Sarbanes- Oxley Act and the implementation of section 404 made the three main American financial markets less attractive to foreign firms?" under the supervision of Philippe Rozin.
To decide on the wining work, the best dissertations were initially selected by professors from all the schools and universities taking part in the awards, including Cindy Zawadzky and Maria Ruiz for NEOMA Business School, Reims campus.
The final jury to select winning dissertation was made up of:
- Bernard Mirailles, President of APDC and Director of Accounting and Taxation, La Poste Group
- Dominique Bonnet, Director of Accounting, Total, and responsible for relations with schools and universities at APDC
- Claude Taudin, Honorary President of APDC
- Xavier Jegard, Director of Accounting, Consolidation and Taxation, Eramet
- Arnaud Rinn, Partner, KPMG
We are delighted to congratulate Marc, who is currently working at KPMG, for his award, which he thoroughly deserved after all his hard work during his studies, in the course of which he worked as an apprentice, supervised by Cindy Zawadzky and followed the Accounting and Control track under the guidance of Isabelle Miroir, both of whom are teacher-researchers at NEOMA BS.
