The achievements of two of our Master of Organisational Psychology 2014 graduates were acknowledged at an awards evening earlier this year.
Alecia Robinson received the the Centre for Organisational Psychology's inaugral Award for Excellence in Research in Organisational Psychology, for her thesis titled: "Allied Health, Research, and Recruitment and Selection Practices: An Exploratory Investigation".
Jessica McMullin-Matthews received a commendation for her thesis titled "The Role of Emotion Congruence in the Perception of Leadership Effectiveness and Follower Support", in which she demonstrated a high-level grasp of advanced data analytic strategies.
This thesis award aims to recognise and encourage research that will have a significant impact on the field. Winners must demonstrate:
1. Excellent scholarship, research skills, and written communication skills
2. High-level grasp of methodological and analytic strategies
3. Convincing articulation of the unique contribution of the research to both science and practice.
Congratulations to the 2014 thesis award winners!
