To be given the chance to participate in a learning experience that combines theory and practice while leveraging the vast cultural and professional experiences of faculty, fellow students, and the extended SSE network will hopefully inspire, challenge, and broaden my perspectives to create new valuable skillsets and grow as a person. My hope for the future is to be able to better and more well-informed contribute to society by driving change and innovation through sustainable digitalization.” 

Raphael Neves Batista is Regional Marketing Communications Manager at Getinge, São Paulo, Brazil:

“My sincere gratitude to the Carl Silfvén Foundation is not enough to express how thrilled I am to be awarded with this game changer scholarship, thanks for the trust.

I must confess I wasn´t expecting to be the recipient of the SSE Carl Silfvén Scholarship 2021 Autumn when I first applied due the highly qualified applicants from all around the world, but I believe that the sum of my professional profile, with my full commitment along the process created the perfect match between the SSE MBA and I.

I am a person driven by challenges and there is no other time, for our generation, so challenging as 2020/2021, all the doubts and concerns raised by COVID-19 worldwide leveraged my will to learn more about how to enable more collaborative and sustainable solutions on a global scale. This high level experience will provide me the depth of knowledge I need in many areas for me to develop professionally and personally, so I can contribute even further to our industry, our society and consequently to the world.

I also would like to say thanks to Jeanette Hedén-Carlsson, the Marketing Communications & Academy EVP of Getinge and Marcio Mazon our Regional President that have been very supportive all along the way in this process. Together we can build a better future for healthcare worldwide and take the Swedish sustainable and innovative philosophy to many other countries.”
