The 2012-13 MSc Accounting, Organisations and Institutions students have successfully continued the AOI Society and have already organised a number of guest speakers to come along to present to the Society. They have included:
■ Alison Thomas, Director of Global Research, PricewaterhouseCoopers
■ Peter Holgate, Senior Accounting Technical Partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers UK and Visiting Professor in the LSE Department of Accounting
The 2011-12 academic year has been a huge success for the Accounting Societies, as two new societies have been founded: the Diploma in Accounting Society (created in October 2011), and the MSc Accounting, Organisations and Institutions (AOI) Society (created in January 2012). Both societies were set up by members of the programmes, and have received great support from the Department and the students.
