The award was given at the International Conference on “Frontiers in Accounting” organized jointly by the Institute of Certified Management Accountants, Australia, and the Indian Jesuit university.
A galaxy of people from India and abroad attended the conference.
Brendon O’Connell, the global president of the Australian institute and its chief operating officer Chris D’Souza presented the award to Father Raj.
“The ICMA Australia applauds the groundbreaking value creation and achievements of Father Felix Raj,” D’Souza said while presenting the award to the Jesuit priest. He said his institute was honored to induct Father Raj to the global Management Accounting Hall of Fame for his services to the profession in India.
Father Raj is the first Indian to receive this award.
In his acceptance speech, Father Raj said, “I am grateful to the ICMA Australia for recognizing St. Xavier’s University, Kolkata and I accept the award on behalf of the Xaverian family. I am just one of the many who deserve to receive it.”
