University of Worcester Business Graduate wins Hewett Recruitment Prize

A Business graduate, who was previously named as one of Microsoft’s top ambassadors, has scooped another prize for his studies.

Ben Price won the Hewett Prize for Best Undergraduate Student in the University of Worcester’ Business School.

Ben, who has just graduated with a First Class Honours degree in Business with Leadership and Innovation from the University of Worcester, said: “I’m really delighted to have won this award. It’s a great achievement for me.”

Louise Hewett, managing director of Hewett Recruitment, presented Ben with his award, and commented: “As a business, we work closely with the University on a range of different projects to highlight the skills of students as they move into employment.  Our ethos, like that of the University, is about developing the talent within the county.  His approach to his degree course and his outlook towards business will stand him in great stead as he enters the field of employment.”

Alongside his degree, Ben spent two years working for Microsoft and in the final year of university he went on to win £2,000 after being named the company’s best Windows 7 ambassador outside the USA.

Ben, aged 23, from Westbury in Wiltshire, has now secured a job at Net Communities in London as the Marketing and Social Media Manager.
“I couldn’t have asked for a better start to working life,” he said.
