Mathias Egede Glahn

  • Programme: Masters in Management
  • Nationality: Danish

Studied: BSc in International Business, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark

Interested in: Consulting, private equity

My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: The fact that there are only 24 hours in a day. Balancing a full-time job with GMAT studies and application preparation can be quite a challenge

About me: I was born and raised in Denmark but have been fortunate enough to study on four different continents throughout my academic career. I graduated with a B.Sc. in International Business from Copenhagen Business School in June 2016, during which I studied in both Hong Kong and the US as part of the GLOBE programme. This was a unique experience that gave me valuable insight into differing cultures and connected me with incredible people from New York to Shanghai. From a professional perspective, I have experience within private equity as a full-time analyst at Polaris, a leading Nordic mid-market private equity firm. I have also worked with business development and corporate strategy in differing positions with the international biotechnology company, Novozymes. Moreover, I spent four years coaching an U17s football team, and also taught numerous subjects to primary school students in both Hong Kong and Copenhagen. On the personal side, I love sports, and I always try to combine travelling with more exotic interests of mine such as fishing, skiing, and scuba diving. After finishing my Masters in Management degree at London Business School, I will explore a career in management consulting with A.T. Kearney.
