A word from our Project Leader…

Who is Kira Östlund?

I am a goal-oriented person with a doer-mentality who is always looking for new experiences. With that said, project management is a big interest of mine. I am currently studying my fourth semester of BSc in Business and Economics and I have recently become an active member of LundaEkonomerna. The many opportunities the union gives its members is something I have really come to understand as an active member; the connections you get with both companies and other members are amazing and will for sure be valuable in the future.

What about the committee and the project?

This is a fun and rewarding experience for me. The committee and I are working intensely in order to acquire the best companies and institutions to join the tour. Our focus is to have a broad variety of companies with visits on their departments that will be most interesting for our economics students.

Please stay tuned, we will come with interesting updates in the near future!

– Kira Östlund, Project Leader.
