- The master students at NHH are among the best in Norway, and I would like to see more of them consider the PhD program we offer. I also want to ensure that the school attends to the interests of those already employed on a temporary basis, for instance by providing better information regarding possibilities and expectations. My overall ambition is to strengthen the position of NHH as graduates’ preferred institution.

- I started my studies at NHH already in 2012 during my bachelor’s degree. I returned afterwards for a master’s degree and I am currently a PhD research scholar. Therefore, I know the school and the people well. Since I am originally from Latvia, and spent a year of my PhD studies on a research stay in the Wharton School in the United States, I can offer international experience and perspective as a board member at NHH. My objectives are to represent the diversity of the temporary employees of NHH and to promote the school’s international reputation.

- After six years’ at NHH and with experience from the board at the Department of Economics I know the school well. I will work for a (more) relevant, empirically grounded and skill-based education. Temporary employment is uncertain. If elected, I will try to make sure that NHH does more to prepare its temporary employees for their next position – whether this is at NHH or outside.
