The Faculty of Commerce has cause for celebration following academic Dr Sam Jebeile’s receival of the annual CPA Australia NSW President’s Award for Excellence.

The award is given to an academic who excels in teaching and learning or research and contributes directly or indirectly through their work to the field of accounting.

“Sam’s reputation in teaching accountancy to first year students is well known through the student body as being innovative and engaging. Above all, he is interested in the welfare of each member of his class,” she said.

“Due to Dr Jebeile’s teaching skills, mentoring and advocacy many students have chosen Accounting as their major.  In addition to that his involvement with the Graduates to League program is exemplary.”

Dr Jebelie was chosen from 29 academics in the NSW region. The decision was made by the President and Divisional Council of CPA Australia NSW. Dr Jebeile said he was humbled to receive the award.

“I will definitely continue to develop programs that engage our students, the profession, and the community at large."
