Who is Sara Sturesson? 

I am in my third semester of my bachelor in Business and Economics and I am a passionate Lundaekonom. When I first began in Lund I had no idea what being involved in Lundaekonomerna was all about or what criteria you had to have, but during my novischweek the committee for Corporate Challenge was recruited and I applied as the Activity Coordinator.
I thought it would be a great way to develop myself but also to meet friends and be involved in the Lunda-Life. And I had the privilege to be within the committee last year and it was over my expectations and even more! This year I got the position of trust as the Project Leader of Corporate Challenge 2017 which will be a great challenge and a dream come true.

By that said do not hesitate to be involved within Lundaekonomerna and remember:
The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams” – Oprah Winfrey

Why should I apply to take part of Corporate Challenge 2017?

Corporate Challenge Is all about helping students meet their dream companies during a fun informal day. It is a great way to meet people from the business-life and students but also to prepare your professional career, find friends for life and be a part of a fantastic committee.
