Hanken appointed Nina Ingves as Alumnus of the Year

Hanken School of Economics annually appoints the Alumnus of the Year, who has been recognised for activities in society during the year.

This year Hanken’s Rector, together with the Alumni Council, has appointed Nina Ingves, Business Advisor who is about to start her own business, as Alumnus of the Year. Through her engagement in Hanken’s activities, Nina Ingves is an active link between Hanken and the business community, and serves as a role model for both current students and other alumni.

- Hanken has shown remarkable development and is working towards keeping a strong position also in the future. The students get a good foundation to start from and through international accreditations and top rankings you can see an increase in value also for the alumni. I’m proud of my alma mater and I’m happy to support Hanken in any way I can, says Nina Ingves.

- Nina is an alumnus with excellent social skills and always willing to help. She has supported Hanken in many ways, for example by acting as moderator on many occasions, says Dean Sören Kock. 

The recognition was announced during the annual homecoming day Hankendagen on 14 October 2016. This was the 7th time Hanken appointed the Alumnus of the Year.
