St. James’s Place Academy has awarded the Academic Excellence in Accounting Prize to Gianluca D’Avino, Achmad Masyhadul Amin and Shengli Shen for their 6,000 word essays as part of the LSE’s MSc Accounting, Organizations and Institutions programme. 

  • Gianluca D’Avino “Accounting, Accountability and the Emergence of Beneficiaries’ Voices”
  • Achmad Masyhadul Amin “Accounting and Rationalities Behind Performance-Based Budget Allocation in Indonesian Village Fund Programme”
  • Shengli Shen “Institutionalising Covid-19 Risk Accounting: Construction, Indicators and Transparency” 

This short film presented by Dr Ken Lee, MSc Programme Director features an interview with Shaun Godfrey, Head of Academy Marketing and Engagement at St. James’s Place, on what made these essays stand out and their relevance today. The essays focused on different topics ranging from risk management and corporate activities, decentralised funding and improved financial governance between the state and village level management, and how NGOs are accounted for by looking at the beneficiaries.

"We are pleased to continue our collaboration with the LSE and congratulate this year’s three winners: Achmad Masyhadul Amin, Gianluca D’Avino and Shengli Shen, students on the MSc ‘Accounting, Organisations and Institutions’ Programme’. We wish them the best for their futures.” Shaun Godfrey, St. James’s Place Wealth Academy
