MSLS Thesis Projects Winning Prizes Around the World!
A group thesis completed in just 4-5 months is a challenging task, indeed. So, completing that task and submitting the final draft to your advisor can be a very rewarding experience, worthy of celebration. Imagine how it feels to later find yourself receiving congratulatory emails and phone calls to advise that you have also been awarded additional prizes.
This is the case for three MSLS 2011 thesis projects, who have recently won awards for their excellent work. Big congratulations go out to our students: (1) the thesis group of Tamar Harel, Carmelina Macario, and Sara Carreno, who won 50,000 SEK in the Sparbanksstiftelsen Kronan Awards; (2) the thesis group of Alison Cretney, Steven Cretney, and Tracy Meisterheim, who won 25,000 SEK in the Sparbanksstiftelsen Kronan Awards; and (3) the thesis group of Funmilayo Akinosi, Daniel Nordlund, and Alejandro Turbay, who won at the International Microfinance Awards 2011.
