Award for Aisha’s Final Year Project involving Qi Digital
Aisha Hussain, a final year student in Business Management and Accounting has been awarded Brunel University London’s Best Accounting Project for her dissertation research into the auditing challenges with digitalised payments.
The financial tech company Qi Digital helped Aisha’s work by distributing survey questions across their network of clients, suppliers, and business contacts. Her analysis of the returns, together with a sample of interviews, and comparisons with auditor results, provided insights into the accounting and auditing challenges of a digitalised system.
Mann Matharu, CEO, Qi Digital says: "As a technology-first business, I realised that there was a gap in the knowledge and understanding of the importance of blockchain technology and how it would play an important part in the auditing process of any accounting system. I am thrilled that this topic was researched under the supervision of Dr Monomita Nandy"
After meeting with Aisha (remotely) during the Covid pandemic, I shared some of my ideas for her to consider and Qi Digital were happy to introduce Aisha to our networks to investigate the topic further. I would like to congratulate Aisha on winning Brunel University London’s "Best Accounting Project" for her dissertation research into the auditing challenges with digitised payments and wish her the very best in the future."
Aisha was presented with a certificate and £250. She said: “This final year project will enhance my career as I know now I can complete a big project under a tight deadline and under pressure. The win will help me stand out as I can share my achievement.”
