Friday, April 27, 2018

Three MBA students were recently announced as winners of the annual Carl N. Platou Leadership Competition Awards.

Christine Goergen took home first place with Anne Jensen and Elisha Friesema coming in second and third place, respectively. For finishing in first, Goergen took home a cash prize of $3,000.

The competition, hosted by the Medical Industry Leadership Institute (MILI), recognizes the leadership skills and innovative thinking of an elite group of students who are complementing their MBA education with a medical industry specialization. The winning students were nominated by their peers, mentors, and instructors for their leadership and dedication to the medical industry.

The awards are named after the visionary healthcare executive and MILI partner Carl N. Platou, who led Fairview Health Systems for 40 years.

All three of the winners will lunch May 3 with the Platou family and MILI’s executives in residence — John Alexander, Archelle Georgiou, and Thom Gunderson.
