My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Deciding which programme I wanted to attend!

About me: Born and raised in Oslo, Norway, I moved to Copenhagen in 2016 where I completed my Bachelors in Business Administration and Information Systems at Copenhagen Business School.I spent an exchange semester at the University of Hong Kong, where I experienced the excitement of living abroad and being in an international environment. After two years of various engagements in management consulting, investment banking and technology consulting in Norway following my graduation from CBS, I wanted to return to a truly international environment and was drawn to London Business School.

Post-LBS, I will start my career in a global management consulting firm’s private equity practice. My strong interest in strategy consulting and private equity is nurtured at LBS, as an integral part of the student experience is the immense number of clubs and extracurricular activities available. I am a member of the Private Equity & Venture Capital Club, which offers modelling workshops and facilitates networking events with leading industry players. These activities are highly complementary to the programme curriculum and a great resource to fuel interest, get hands-on experience and industry exposure as well as meet new friends. As a very sociable and sporty person (tennis, football, running, cycling), I have found London to be an incredible playground to meet people, discover the outdoors (London is full of amazing neighbourhoods and restaurants) and learn from a vibrant community of dedicated professionals!

Three topics I can be approached about: Private Equity & Venture Capital Club; Consulting Club; programme selection and application guidance
