Scholarships to the best master theses at the School of Business, Economics and Law

After two years of intense studies, 166 master's students from the School of Business, Economics and Law were celebrated with a graduation ceremony on 11 June. In connection with this, the best theses from each of the nine programs were awarded with "The Malmsten Award".

The School's two-year master's programmes are taught in English and attract students from all over the world. In the cohort that completed their training in June, there were students from countries such as China, Zimbabwe, Indonesia, Holland, Belgium, Germany and France.

Since the School started with the Master's programmes in English in 1997, they have been supported by the Richard C. Malmsten Memorial Foundation, including The Malmsten Award for the best theses in each program. As well as the honor, the authors each received SEK 10 000 in scholarships.
