Trinity Business Student of the Year Announced
Apr 05, 2011
Business Studies and Politics student Daniel Philbin Bowman was recently announced as the winner of the 2011 Business Student of the Year for his outstanding achievements and entrepreneurial flair. The competition, open to final year business students, is sponsored by the Trinity Business Alumni in association with the Business School in Trinity College and Bank of Ireland.
As well as studying for his degree, Daniel has been Vice-President of Trinity Investors Society during which time he redesigned the investment programme around long-term value investing and away from short-term speculation. In the lead up the 2011 general election Daniel founded and directed the TellUsWhy campaign which called on all candidates to submit relevant, objective and comparable information online so that the Irish electorate could make a more informed decision at the polling booth. In March last year Daniel was a member of the winning team at the Deloitte-IMD SBF international case study competition in Athens, Greece and later in the year was named winner of the Undergraduate Award of Ireland and Northern Ireland in the business category for his essay on how commercial marketing tactics could be utilised for social causes.
Daniel was one of six students from TCD’s School of Business short listed for the award. This year’s shortlist presented a significant challenge for the judges due to the high calibre of the candidates. The runners up were Jennifer Finn, Eadaoin Queenan, Alan Crosbie, Amandine Lobelle and Trish Sheehan. On presenting the award TCD Provost, Dr John Hegarty, congratulated all the finalists and highlighted the importance of their contributions to both student and community life.
