Undergraduate Receives University’s Top Honor

UC Berkeley named Ankur Luthra, a senior who double-majored in business administration and electrical engineering and computer sciences (EECS), the University Medalist for 2003.

Each year the University Medal is awarded to the most academically distinguished graduating senior on the Berkeley campus.

Luthra, who maintains a 4.0 grade point average, has worked on game-theory models of the Internet and on artificial intelligence projects designed to improve robots’ throwing skills. He is studying the business of nonprofit organizations at the Haas School. He was also named a Rhodes Scholar in December of 2002.

The last time a University Medal was awarded to a business major was in 1935 to Florence De Gottardi.
