Author Bio

My name is Filippa Torstendahl and I am 22 years old. I have lived just outside of Stockholm my entire life, together with my wonderful family. After my high school graduation in 2013, I first worked at a restaurant and later travelled to Barcelona where I spent 3 months studying Spanish and doing an internship at a digital printing company. During the fall of 2014 I moved to Copenhagen to start my university studies at Copenhagen Business School, which is one of the best things I have ever done. During the summer I was in New York City where I did an internship at Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken (SEB) working with German “Large Corporations”. I am now at my third and final year of my Bachelor in Business Administration Culture and Language but hopefully I will continue my studies two more years here at CBS for a Masters degree.

Published: December 3, 2016

Soon it will be time to start applying to Universities and Colleges for next year. For some schools the process might have already started, but for CBS the process does not end until the beginning of March (the exact dates varies depending on your nationality and prior education, for more info regarding admission dates see: http://www.cbs.dk/en/study/bachelor/admission/undergraduate-admission-step-3). Nevertheless, I thought I would give you some tips regarding what to think about when applying to CBS. Quotas When applying to CBS, you first and foremost need to go to the CBS.dk homepage to see which quota you belong to since that will have implications…

End of the semester

Published: November 25, 2016

As we are approaching Christmas, exams are getting closer, i.e. constant stress and lack of sleep. But who am I to complain? In all honestly, the rate of this semester has been surprisingly slow and after two hectic years of university a “break” was exactly what I needed to get the “I love school” – spirit back. I feel strong and ready to tackle all kind of challenges that my exams might bring me! This semester (the 5th semester) the students at CBS can go on exchange all around the world. However, since my program includes language we are only allowed to…

CBS Campus

Published: November 7, 2016

Hello again, When I started CBS I was shocked about how LARGE CBS is. Coming for a tiny community and a tiny tiny High School I was actually quite frightened about both the amount of students at the school (from approx. 500 students at my High School to 22 000 at CBS = BIG change) and the size of the campus. I can imagine that I’m not the only one experiencing these feelings. But don not be alarmed dear readers – that is what my blog is here for. Follow me on this little trip around CBS campus and you…

SweDen Students

Published: November 7, 2016

Hi everyone, This post might be more focused on potential Swedes that are thinking about starting CBS however it might be interesting for others as well, especially to get an understanding of how life outside of school can look like here at CBS. I wanted to tell you a little about the Swedish organization SweDen Students, which is an organization at CBS driven by Swedish students at the school focused on reducing the gap between Swedish students and the Danish market. What SweDen Students does is that they hold different seminars with presentations from various companies, such as Coca-Cola, H&M, EF etc.…

Questions

Published: November 1, 2016

Hello, Oktober has passed and we have entered November, which means that the rain has started to fall and the wind is heavier than ever. On the other hand, Christmas is not far away! Since this semester has an extremely slow pace for me my weekdays have been filled with harmony (and unreasonably many hours in front of the TV). However the end of this semester is coming closer, which means that it´s soon time for exams. I am currently working with a project that is due on Monday so this post might be one of the boring kind. A couple…

Welcome to my blog!

Published: October 31, 2016

Hello Everybody! StudyAdvantage has now expanded globally, which is super fun and exciting if you ask me! I thought I would kick of this blog with an introduction about myself (just as I did for the Swedish version). I´m well aware that there is a short introduction about myself at the top of the blog but I thought we should personalize this a little bit more. Here we go! My name is Filippa Torstendahl and I am born and raised in a small town just outside of Stockholm, Sweden, together with my family (mother, father, brother and my beloved cat).…
