A word from the Project Leader…
“When I first started the bachelor programme three years ago I did not know what I wanted to work with after my studies. I was not sure what career opportunities I had as a student within the field of economics. Last year, I applied to join the LEST trip in order to receive a deeper understanding of the everyday work assignments for an economist. For me, the LEST trip was a great experience and I had a lot of fun!
Taking part of LEST is a perfect opportunity for you, who are studying economics and want to work within the field. I highly valued meeting the company representatives and to hear about their career paths and everyday work. Also, I found it interesting to hear more about the companies and what positions they offer. The committee and I are doing our best to get a variety of companies for you to visit and to make sure, that you will have the same great experience as I did. I encourage you to apply for the trip and I am looking forward to spend four amazing days together with you in Stockholm!”
We are LEST and we are currently spending a lot of energy to organize a great experience and an unforgettable opportunity for you. We hope you are just as excited as us about this trip to Stockholm!
