MDH doctoral students praised professor

Mar 31, 2017 | Student

Ulf Andersson, Professor of Business Administration, is the first person to be honoured with The Mentor Award, a new award instituted by MDH’s Doctoral Student Council.

The distinction ”The Mentor Award” is bestowed on a person within academia who gives the best possible support to MDH’s doctoral students. Ulf Andersson was awarded the distinction following a general vote among the University’s doctoral students, and he was ranked the highest among those nominated regarding mentorship and support to the PhD students.

    - It’s a great honour for me to be awarded this distinction by MDH’s Doctoral Student Council. The fact that the PhD students consider that I contribute towards their personal development and that I contribute towards their academic success is a feeling that fills me with pride, says Ulf Andersson in a comment on the award.

The award was given this year for the first time, but it will recur annually and be presented in conjunction with the Council’s event Doctoral Students’ Day.
