On 27 September, alumni from the Department of Economics and Business gathered for the annual Oecon Conference at Aarhus University, where the SEB award for economics graduate (cand.oecon) of the year was awarded. This year’s recipient of the award, Anne Brink Nandrup, was honoured for her contribution to establishing an inspiring and productive study environment at the department and for her ability to strike a balance between doing voluntary work for the benefit of the department and doing excellent academic work.

 

Member of the award committee, Mark Luscombe from SEB Denmark, says:

 

- Anne Brink Nandrup possesses both the personal and academic competences, which will no doubt take her very far. Apart from being a strong ambassador for the economics programme, Anne Brink Nandrup is also a popular role model for the relatively few women who study economics and business.

 

The award committee have also noted that Anne Brink Nandrup’s nomination is supported by her fellow students as well as employees at the department, and this further underlines the importance of her achievements throughout her studies.

 

In August 2013, Anne Brink Nandrup completed the elite programme at the department, the International Master of Science in Quantitative Economics (IMSQE), and during her studies she also worked as a research assistant at the Department of Economics and Business. Concurrently with her academic work, she also actively participated in and contributed to the study environment as:

 

  • Vice-chair of the board of studies at the Department of Economics and Business
  • Active member of the Oecon Council
  • Editor and driving force behind the department’s magazine Bladet Ø
  • Co-organiser of the Aarhus Symposium
  • Co-initiator of the women’s network “KØN”
  • Tutor for the new students.

 

Today, Anne Brink Nandrup is a PhD student at the department focusing on the economics of education.

 

Upon receiving the award, Anne Brink Nandrup said the following:

 

- I’m very happy and honoured to receive this award. And I’m very proud to be called a strong ambassador for the economics programme. The voluntary student associations have made a huge effort towards strengthening the programme and improving the study environment at the Department of Economics and Business – so the award is also a recognition of the extensive work that they have done. It’s been very exciting to be part of all this.
