Young Alumni of the Year 2014

Alumni from the School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg are to be found far and wide, creating value for companies, organisations, authorities and individuals alike. This deserves to be recognised and encouraged, which is why we are now inviting nominations for Young Law Alumnus of the Year and Young Business and Economics Alumnus of the Year (including alumni from SMIL).

Who can be nominated?

  • Nominees must have graduated in or after 2007.
  • Nominees must have used the knowledge they gained at the School of Business, Economics and Law in a way that you feel deserves recognition. This could involve creating something, distinguishing themselves in their career or their social commitment, contributing to sustainable development or acting as a source of inspiration for others.
  • Think outside the box – it is for you to decide who is worthy of a nomination.


The nomination process
Anyone can make a nomination, simply send an e-mail with the following information to alumni@handels.gu.se  by 12 October:

  • your contact details
  • whether your nomination is for Young Law Alumnus of the Year or Young Business and Economics Alumnus of the Year
  • information about your nominee (name, qualification/course, current employment, contact details)
  • your reasons for nominating this particular person


The Young Alumni of the Year will be chosen by a law jury and a business and economics jury. The jury evaluates the nominees based on the following criteria:

  • Is it knowledge from the School the alumnus has used in a meritorious way?
  • How has the alumnus used the knowledge?
  • Why is this worth noting? Is it unique? Does it affect many people?
  • Why has the alumnus succeeded? Does the person have special features, contacts etc, that, in addition to knowledge of the School, has contributed to the success?

Award ceremony on 19 November
The Young Alumni of the Year will be honoured at a ceremony on 19 November. Anyone submitting a nomination is, of course, welcome to attend. Come and join us for inspirational speakers, light refreshments and the chance to meet former and current students.

Deadline for nominations: 12 October 2014

Agnes Andersson Hammarstrand, law alumnus, and Ida Hellmark, environmental economics alumnus, laureates 2012
