Once again, a graduate of HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management has happily received the award as the best foreign student. Today (Saturday, August 26, 2017), Yang Song, 27, from China, was awarded the EUR 1,000 endowed prize of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) during the graduation ceremony.
Only 230 out of the approximately 320,000 foreign students in Germany received the award this year. It is given to students from abroad who are enrolled at a German university and who stand out due to their excellent academic performance and their social or intercultural commitment.
“Talented students are very welcome here and we are happy when they study successfully with us. The DAAD Award acknowledges outstanding achievement. I am pleased that we can enable universities such as HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management to attract international talent with our DAAD program,” says Prof. Dr. Margret Wintermantel, the DAAD President.
“It is my great honor to be offered this award. The year in HHL is as intensive as fruitful and I am glad that I can share my insights in a public channel. Although most of us might not frequently appear in the campus in the future, HHL will always be the experience that bonds us closely. I would like to take this chance to sincerely thank you and all the faculty in HHL who help us along our perfect journey with HHL.”
