The importance of balance

The aspect of the Norwegian culture that I appreciate the most is work-life balance. I’ve learned how important it is to have that balance, which I’ve cherished ever since I started my full-time job here in Norway.

Thinking about my years at BI puts a smile on my face

  • The sleepless nights preparing for exams and assignments with my wonderful friends
  • Learning from so many bright students and knowledgeable professors
  • The unique environment of competitiveness and togetherness

Placing top 10 among 1000 teams in the CFA Institute Research Challenge 2019 and traveling to Zurich to present our work to a panel of judges!

The past 4 years studying and living in Norway have helped me grow as a person and I’ve learned invaluable skills that have helped me in my professional life. Even though I’ve had a lot of previous international exposure in my life, the BI experience has made a huge difference to me!
