How did you find out about Lund University?
“I discovered Lund University through friends that I met during my exchange semester in France. The guy that I lived with was a Swede from Umeå and one girl was at Copenhagen Business School. They both gave me the impression that Lund was a good option and a well-known school.”
What is the best thing about your programme?
“The best thing about the Service Management programme is that the courses are taught by many different professors coming from different backgrounds and mindsets. This really encourages you to think critically and challenge the status quo. Also, my classmates are from all over the world and that has really helped me with my own growth as a person. From working together, you learn communication skills, team work skills, and also being able to appreciate the different cultures.”
Why did you choose the specialisation in Supply Chain Management?
“I chose supply chain management as a specialisation because I had studied supply chain management in my Bachelor’s and I wanted to get a deeper understanding of the subject.”
What do you think of the teaching style?
“I really like the teaching style at Lund University. You have a lot of freedom in the classroom to investigate further what interests you.”
What are you planning to do after your studies?
“After my studies, I am hoping to find a job in Sweden working with international transports of goods or last-mile logistics.”
What do you do in your spare time?
“In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with friends, trying new recipes and being outdoors when the weather allows. I have gotten involved on Campus with both Agora and Stampus – you can’t study all the time!”
Do you have any favourite places in Helsingborg?
“In the summer, I love to go to the beach. I really love walking the gardens at Sofiero anytime of the year. If you are looking for a great place to grab a coffee, Ebbas Fik is a must!”
What is it like to live in Sweden and what have you learned from it so far?
“Living in Sweden is incredibly laid-back. I greatly enjoy the work-life balance in Sweden and how seriously it’s taken – that’s absolutely foreign to most Americans.”
Do you have any advice for students considering to study at Lund University?
“My advice would be – don’t let the stereotype of Sweden scare you. Yes, it is cold and dark, but studying and living in Sweden is so rewarding. You learn so much about your area of study in addition to yourself.”
