MEET LUKE MCGINTY, THE WINNER OF THE AARHUS SYMPOSIUM AWARD 2016

 

The winner of the Aarhus Symposium Award 2016 was Luke McGinty, BSc student in Economics on exchange at Copenhagen University from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Luke wrote his essay in response to the challenge proposed by Jimmy Maymann on “The Influence of Digitalisation”. He argued that a media company could achieve immense success by offering their users a curated selection of the best articles available online. You can read his inspiring essay here.

 

The speakers participating in Aarhus Symposium Challenge 2016 were Peder Holk Nielsen, President & CEO at Novozymes; Jimmy Maymann, President at AOL Content & Consumer Brands; and Morten Albæk, Co-founder & CEO at Voluntas. Each of them challenged students to write an essay about a specific topic relating to this year’s theme: “The Art of Power”.
