Fabian ten Kate, Daniël Vullings, Thom de Vries and Evert de Haan were all honoured with a SOM Award at FEB’s PhD Conference on Wednesday 15 March. On behalf of the jury Taco van der Vaart, Director of Graduate Studies, presented the 2015 and 2016 SOM Awards for the Best Graduates of the Research Master’s programme and the Best PhD Dissertations of the Faculty of Economics and Business.
Fabian ten Kate (2015) and Daniël Vullings (2016) each received € 1,000 for their award-winning Research Master’s theses. The jury, consisting of Van der Vaart, Rob Alessie, Sjoerd Beugelsdijk, Dirk Pieter van Donk, Dries Faems, Koert van Ittersum, Floor Rink and Gerben van der Vegt, favoured their work over the studies of the other nominees Gert Jan Romensen and Shao Yan (2015), and Johannes Kleinhempel and Nick Koning (2016).
The three nominees for the Best PhD Dissertation in Economics and Business 2015 – winner Thom de Vries, Laurie Reijnders and Ward Romeijnders – all graduated cum laude, making it difficult for the jury to choose a winner. In the competition for the 2016 Award, cum laude graduate Evert de Haan was chosen over nominees Brenda Bos and Solmaria Halleck.
