Platou Leadership Competition
Carl N. Platou was a visionary healthcare executive who was inducted into the 2009 Minnesota Business Hall of Fame. The Leadership Competition, created in his honor, was established to recognize the leadership skills and innovative thinking of an elite group of students who plan to complement their MBA education with a medical industry specialization.
Evoking Mr. Platou's inspirational vision and leadership in the medical industry, the competition recognizes three MBA students who have displayed strong leadership capabilities and innovative thinking throughout their time with the Carlson School’s MBA program.
Students may be nominated by peers, faculty, employers, staff and others who are familiar with their leadership. An external review committee selects the award winners. First place winner receives a $2000 award, second place $1000, and third $500. All award winners will be invited to lunch with the Platou family. Nominations will be accepted until March 13th.
