Why did you choose to study at SSE?
I did my bachelors at SSE and really liked the curriculum, the professors, the close connections to the business community and especially the friendly environment. I knew it was going to give me a great start in my career as a degree from SSE is highly appreciated, both in Sweden and the UK (in my experience).

How have you experienced your program so far?
I like it very much. It has been very practical where we have gotten the opportunity to put theory in to practice with real business cases for real companies. There is a lot of group work, which teaches you a lot about working with people from different cultures, and you get to know your class very well.

What are the teachers like?
The teachers are very friendly and helpful. They are easy to approach and most classes are very interactive where you are encouraged to reason yourself and also discuss issues with the teachers.

How is the student life on Campus?
The student life is one of my favourite things about SSE; the small size of the school creates a very friendly atmosphere and there is always something happening in the student association (SASSE); parties, stand-up pubs, debates, sport practices, ski trips and anything in between.

What are your career goals?
I am not aiming for a certain position or industry, but see my goal to always be in an environment where I learn something new and where I am surrounded by interesting and motivated people. I want a career that can take me places in the world, both for business but also aid work; I want to be able to give back to the world and society somehow, both with money and time.

What are you planning to do after graduation?
I want to work with business development and strategy, either as a consultant or as an internal hire.
