A scholarship award from HSBC Bank (Cayman) Ltd. enabled Laura McLaughlin to pursue her goal of being qualified as a managerial accountant. Now, the recent graduate has returned home to begin her career with HSBC Cayman.
Ms. McLaughlin began full time employment with HSBC Cayman in January 2009 as an Account Manager in the Insurance Division, after achieving the Master of Science degree in Managerial Accounting from the University of North Texas.
She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting Control Systems from the same university in May 2007, on a scholarship funded by HSBC Cayman.
As a student at Triple C School, Ms. McLaughlin distinguished herself as a consistent high achiever who became the salutatorian of her graduating class in 2003.
Throughout her undergraduate and graduate studies, Ms. McLaughlin worked at HSBC Cayman during summer and Christmas holidays while on island.
‘Completing my studies and returning home to full time employment at HSBC is a proud moment for me,’ Ms. McLaughlin said.
‘I am in an environment that I know is fully supportive of my career and personal development and I am looking forward to growing with the bank.’
HSBC Cayman’s scholarship programme is currently supporting another student who is pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in finance at the University of South Florida.
