Evelina Lazareva (BA (Hons) Economics with International Finance and Banking) has recently had her Research Project recognised in an international economics essay competition.

Evelina submitted a paper for consideration for the International Atlantic Economic Society's annual Best Undergraduate Paper Award, for her research entitled Do rating agencies confirm or surprise the market? Market Efficiency Hypothesis vs. Conspiracy Theory?

Her paper was short-listed and, in October 2015, Evelina travelled to Boston, MA, in the USA, where the four short-listed students presented to the judges prior to the final decision.

Unfortunately Evelina did not win but she has received many compliments for the sophistication of her research methods, the empirical specification of her research and the quality of her presentation. She also received an invitation to present her research at an international colloquium in Warsaw in December. This takes place at the University of Lódz, followed by a further day at the Warsaw Stock Exchange.

Evelina said: "I would like very much to thank Head of the Economics Division Andy Cooke, who provided the financial support that enabled me to travel to Boston. My dissertation supervisor, Francesco Marchionne, was a great support throughout the whole academic year. I received even more guidance and endless support from Francesco and Rob Ackrill during my preparation for an award.

"I would like to take this opportunity to say how grateful I am for the past three years to be taught by such a professional and dedicated team of academics that Nottingham Trent University has."
