2018.05.14 | Marie Louise Bro Pold

The prize will be awarded to a newly graduated cand.oecon. who has contributed to the creation of an inspiring and strong study environment and influenced the studies in a positive way through academic as well as social initiatives.

Besides being a fine student, the award winner is expected to be active within the study environment, e.g. within Økonomisk Forening, student policy work, Aiesec, Bladet Ø, establishing a new association or other sort of commitment at the Department of Economics and Business Economics. Furthermore, the award winner is expected to show academic involvement and must possess the competences expected of a cand.oecon. and must be considered a fine ambassador for the programme.

The prize comes with a grant of DKK 20,000

Fellow students and academic staff members may nominate candidates. In particular, master’s thesis advisors are urged to consider students who graduated between the summer of 2017 and now (including students whose theses may currently be under review).

Please send your reasoned recommendation to Birgitte Højklint Nielsen:

Deadline: 2 August 2018

The committee chosen to evaluate the recommendations is:

Managing Director Anders Carøe Bylling (Chairman), Assistant Professor Kenneth Lykke Sørensen and Managing Director Jens Hornemann.

The Oecon Award will be presented to the cand.oecon. graduate of the year at the Oecon Conference, which gathers alumni of economics from Aarhus BSS every year on the last Saturday of September.
