And the Winner is…?

Soon there’ll be the the Oscars. Sometimes truly great movies – and sometimes not – get the prestigious award.

But there are awards more important to us than the award of the academy of motion picture arts and sciences in Los Angeles.

I am thinking of our dear fellow Ganna Demidyuk*). She took part in a conference in Las Vegas with her paper about KPI’s in airline industry: Choosing Financial Key Performance Indicators: the Airline Industry Case.

Not to forget: a total of 800 participants from all over the world came to Las Vegas. Only  about 17% of them were rewarded.

She got the “Outstanding research award” which gives an opportunity to publish in a reviewed journal, the “Journal of Accounting and Taxation“.

Ganna writes us about her tremendous experience:

This paper would be incomplete if it did not contain the fullest expression of my gratitude to Professor Dr. Hany Shawky, who has so generously given of his time and expertise; and not only with this paper but also throughout my PhD project. He has prompted and mentored my attempts to achieve a level of excellence with an open and gentle manner that created an environment for ideas to bear fruit and for me to believe in my own potential. His contribution has been invaluable and I thank him most sincerely!
I also greatly appreciate input made by Professor Dr. Bill Holstein during our last session.


Finally, I warmly thank Professor Dr. Keith N. Cleland for his sincere and fundamental participation.

    Congratulations to Ganna. She really deserved this award by all means. Having personally accompanied her for a little while on her PhD path, I know how hard and ambitiously she has worked on this for years and how much the supervisors support means to her. Her theses’ subject is definately one of the most challenging ones I have come along in recent years. Good Luck for her further accomplishments. Uwe

    Dear Uwe, thank you very much for kind regards!
    Yeah, it was indeed very encouraging to get this award. I think you know perfectly how important such feed-backs are, for someone, who felt being lost in the woods or the like. Personally, for me this award meant that 2010 did not pass in vain.
    From my side, I must mark Dr. Hermann as very responsive person ever willing to support, with very useful advice, by the way. )))) Ganna

  3. The Best will always be recognized!
    I did have the privilege of attending one of your lectures, subject “Contribution Based Activity” during my Financial Management Block Week of 2008 summer. I am very glad to know that your KPI’s in Airline Industry, choosing financial key performance indicators got the ‘IBFR Global Outstanding Research Award of the Year’. Ganna, you richly deserve this award. I congratulate you whole-heartedly for the award. This award endorses what many of us have felt about your class and I wish you all the very best for the future.
