Raghuraman Rangarajan, a student at the MSc Program in General Management at SSE, was one of the international top students receiving the Global Swede Award 2016 at a diploma ceremony taking place at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs recently.
For the sixth consecutive year the Global Swede Award was presented to international students who distinguished themselves in fields closely related to innovation and entrepreneurship.
"The foreign students are a valuable asset for both Sweden's development and future competitiveness. Apart from contributing to new knowledge and perspectives, they are also an important resource for building bridges between Sweden and other countries", says Oscar Stenström, State Secretary to the Minister for Enterprise and Innovation
“I think it's really cool that Sweden, as a country, does so much to make me feel at home. I do feel that talented international students are valued in Sweden and I can't imagine too many other countries go through the trouble of showing appreciation to international students" says Raghuraman Rangarajan.
