Kate Walsh, runner-up in this year’s
Apprentice is a “shining star” according to her lecturers at Aston Business
School in Birmingham where she studied before going onto take part in this year’s
hit business show from the BBC.
Kate graduated from the business
school in 2002 with BSc first class honours in Psychology and Management which,
according to Carol Parkes, Senior Lecturer from Aston Business School, put her
in an ideal position to take this year’s Apprentice by storm.
“Kate understands people exceptionally
well and that trait ensures that she will always get on with people and excel
in everything she does,” said Carol. “She’s committed and passionate and always
comes across as being professional and in control at all times which is a real
asset to any company.
“Aston Business School offers a
perfect base for business minds like Kate’s. BSc’s and other similar
qualifications at Aston are grounded and offer relevant learning that can be
taken directly into the business. We’re so proud of her achievements and are
really excited about her future which is certainly set to be exciting, eventful
and very successful.”
Aston Business School is no stranger
to The Apprentice. Alex Wotherspoon, last year’s third place runner-up, studied
a BA in Managerial Administrative Studies at the school before he took part
in the series.
Executive Dean of Aston Business School said: “We are really proud of the
achievements of all of our students and are thrilled that these individuals have
applied their knowledge, creativity and innovation to such great effect on The
“Our school is
in the top 1% of business schools in the world and we are always
very proud to see our students doing so well and having such a passion for business,
whatever they go on to do. We will continue to provide support to all our
students, including Kate, as they go forward in their careers.”
