Olympic champion wins BI-awards

13 January 2012

Olympic gold medalist Siren Sundby won both the award for ’best student’ and for ’best master thesis’ at BI Norwegian Business School in 2011.

- Stamina and the ability to stay motivated are important in both sports and studies, says Siren to the Norwegian newspaper Dagens Næringsliv.

Siren Sundby took a gold medal in sailing in the Athen Olympics in 2004. She has now finished a master’s degree in Innovation and Entrepreneurship from BI, and at the graduation ceremony in December she was awarded with several prizes. Siren won the award for ‘best student’ in her class, and together with her fellow student, Andreas Brodtkorb, she also won the award for best thesis on her programme.
