Speaking at the announcement, Ken Johnson, Lead Partner, PwC Mid-West Practice, said: “Many businesses are challenged by a shortage of key skills and this is also evident in the Mid-West region. Through these awards we hope not only to recognise and support excellence in learning and education but also to enhance the development of skills that are required by local businesses.”

Professor Finbarr Murphy, Executive Dean of Kemmy Business School, said: "The Kemmy Business School has always had strong connections with accountancy/professional practice. This new chapter in our relationship with PwC highlights the importance of that engagement. It is among the key factors that sees KBS students experiencing one of the highest employment rates in Ireland."
