Announcing The SSE Gunnar Hedlund Award 2016-2018 for the best Ph.D. thesis in the field of International Business.
In 1997, the Institute of International Business at the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) established the award in memory of SSE Professor Gunnar Hedlund. The idea behind the award is that it should act as a vehicle to stimulate Ph.D. candidates around the world in the field of International Business, and also commemorate Professor Gunnar Hedlund’s important work in the field.
The award is administered by the Stockholm School of Economics, in collaboration with The European International Business Academy (EIBA). The winner receives a medal, a diploma and €10.000, and is announced bi-annually at the Annual Meeting of the European International Business Academy in December.
