The Department of Economics is pleased to announce that the final year Economics student Daniel Cueva submitted his undergraduate dissertation to "The Undergraduate Awards" 2017 competition. The Undergraduate Awards is the world’s leading undergraduate awards programme which recognises top undergraduate work, shares this work with a global audience and connects students across cultures and disciplines.

Our student Daniel Cueva submitted his paper "An Econometric Analysis of the Fundamental Determinants of Economic Development in Latin America", (supervisor: Dr Yiannis Karavias) and was voted as this year's Global Winner for the Economics category by an international panel of expert judges. Daniel's paper was chosen among papers coming from highly ranked universities such as Duke, Brown, the University of British Columbia and the University College London. 

Global Winners are published in the annual ‘The Undergraduate Journal’, as well as being invited to the UA Global Summit in Dublin, Ireland. This is an all-expenses-paid four-day networking and brainstorming event which brings the world’s top students together for a series of inspirational lectures, workshops and discussions. Winners and Highly Commended Entrants also gain access to the UA Alumni Network.

Congratulations Daniel!
