Kingston Business School graduate lands award following forensic examination into United Kingdom FTSE 350 companies

Tuesday 21 November 2017

Muhammad TahirA Kingston Business School graduate who spent a year dissecting the financial statements of United Kingdom FTSE 350 companies as part of his PhD study has scooped a top prize for his efforts.

Muhammad Tahir’s study, titled ‘The Association between Earnings Management and Executive Compensation – Evidence from the FTSE350 Index of Companies’ was recognised by the European Doctoral programs Association in Management and Business Administration (EDAMBA).

Having spent more than a decade working in the financial sector of his native Karachi, Muhammad (pictured right) first came to Kingston University in 2011 to complete a Masters in accounting and finance. It was at this time that Muhammed began his award-winning streak, beating 200 other candidates to scoop a 'grand distinction prize' in an international competition for his Masters thesis on the performance of family businesses in the United States.

Muhammad’s Kingston Business School supervisor for both his Masters and PhD studies, Dr Salma Ibrahim praised him for his probing approach. "The findings from his PhD study into executive compensation confirm the need for reforms – as has been proposed by the current government," she said.
