Coming to LSE was quite a natural decision for me, as I knew I wanted to enrol in a programme where I could maximise my potential by learning from some of the best academics in the field. My reason for choosing LSE was partly its great reputation but more importantly the opportunity of studying a programme with a curriculum, which is matched by no other university. The BSc Management programme is very unique and highly specialised. I really enjoy the interdisciplinary approach, exposing students to many different social science aspects and allowing us to critically evaluate evidence relating to management practice.

Thus far, my time at the LSE has evolved around many social activities. I am highly active in the Athletics Union’s biggest sports team - LSE Snowsports.  I can honestly say that joining the team has been one of my best decisions at LSE, having attended the annual ski trip on two occasions. I am furthermore an active member of the Scandinavian Society where we aim to socialise around Scandinavian cultural activities.

Living in central London is one of the best things about studying at the LSE. The central location of the campus makes you want to engage with London and take full advantage of what this great city has to offer. Because of the location I am able to intern with the Financial Times’ fDi Magazine at the London Headquarters - a unique opportunity that reflects the great career prospects of the LSE.

Upon graduation, I hope to acquire entry to a master’s programme in order to specialise further and continue to develop my understanding of management. After that, I hope to work in the financial services industry.
