For the fourth consecutive year, Minister for Trade Ewa Björling presented the Global Swede Award on 12 May 2014. The Global Swede diploma ceremony honours 21 international students who have studied at higher education institutions in Sweden and who have distinguished themselves in areas related to innovation and entrepreneurship. One of them was Karolinska Institutet student Dina Titkova, who received the following nomination:

“Dina Titkova is an outstanding student in the master’s programme of Bioentrepreneurship at Karolinska Institutet. She has excellent academic results coupled with social abilities and high ambitions. She has contributed positively to her programme throughout her studies. Her technical background and work experience combined with business knowledge and a genuine interest for the subject will help her achieve her goal, which is to improve health care through digital technology and innovation.”

The students have distinguished themselves in various ways during their stay in Sweden. They are all now close to completing their master's degree. The hope and idea behind the Global Swede concept is that in the future, the students will be good ambassadors and promote a positive image of Sweden, and also act as important contacts for Swedish businesses around the world.
