Master's Programme in Economics, 1st semester.
I’m born and raised in a small village called Arvika located in Värmland.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Business and Economics, with a major in Economics which I studied here at Umeå University.
It’s a combination between the high standard of the Economics department and Umeå as a city. All the teachers at the department are very friendly and always there to help you when you need it. It feels like they are genuinely interested in your academic development and that you are satisfied with your education.
The high level of the standard of the courses. I also like that I, as a student, can be involved in influencing the development of the program and that our opinions on improvement are taken seriously. Since we are quite few students at the master program it feels like we are one big family, and therefore you are going to build strong ties with you fellow students.
One of the best things about Umeå is that everything seems so close, which means that you can take the bike pretty much everywhere. What I also like is that if you live near the university you are close to everything you need - such as the grocery store and one of the biggest gyms in Sweden (IKSU). As a person who loves to be outdoors, the availability and short distance to the nature is one of the things that I value the most.
