The Management School is pleased to announce that Mr Andrew Trott, a postgraduate student on the MSc Management Programme, has won a Santandar Student Scholarship 2011-2012,  having been awarded the University Home Student Prize.

Andrew has been an entrepreneur since the age of 14. His most recent enterprise is the non-profit organisation, Afrikit, which aims to use sport as a means to reduce social problems in the some of the world’s poorest communities. Afrikit has been really successful, distributing over 5000 football kits to some of the poorest communities in Africa. The enterprise now works with some of the UK’s largest businesses and charities, including Decathlon sports stores and Barclays bank. A number of major news agencies have covered their success, including BBC Look North and the Daily Mirror.

We hope you can join us in wishing Andrew every success on the Management programme and with his future career.
