Author Bio

I'm a 21 year old student from Norway, studying International Management at Warwick Business School. During high school, I did one year of top level sport to pursue my passion for skiing followed by two years of general studies with science. After graduating high school, I moved to New York to study Management for one semester before starting my university career at Warwick. I've always been extremely passionate about traveling and exploring new places, which is why I have chosen to study abroad.

SUPA Polo Champions

Published: February 27, 2017

  Dedication and hard work have yet again proven to be the best recipe for success. I can now proudly call myself a National Champion after winning my division at the SUPA National Arena Polo Championship 2017. Me and my teammates have been training so hard, and was only dreaming of actually winning the tournament. After winning all our “chukkas” in the first round and then winning the semifinals, we were ready for finals against Nottingham. It was by far the most intense game I’ve ever played, but also the most enjoyable as we all played so well. The feeling…

Exchange year in Madrid and internship with Innaxis

Published: January 15, 2017

After a lovely holiday spent with good friends back in Norway, I’m now back in England and already deep down into writing essays and assignments.

Luckily for me, the christmas break brought with it some great news – I got my first choice for my exchange year, and I’ll be spending my next year in Madrid! I’ve decided to split my year in two, one semester at university and one semester working. I’ll be at IE Madrid for the…

There’s tons of readings, seminar work, essays and tests coming up and it’s easy to feel like you just don’t have the time to do all of it. At least that’s how I feel. While studying at a top university, it’s not uncommon to get the feeling that everyone around you are extremely intelligent and determined, and I sometimes don’t understand how people manage to get so much work done and understand everything so…

Decision-making

Published: November 7, 2016

As I’ve mentioned before, my course includes a year abroad, which means I will be spending my third year outside of the UK.  We need to send in an application form, where we rank our top choices and also state whether we want to spend the whole year at a partner institution, have a work placement, or split the year in two between either two partner institution or between studying and having a work placement. The deadline for this application is in just over three weeks, and with the amount of choices we have, I’m really struggling to decide.  Is…

Hi!
