Happy Holidays & Some Other Stuff

A very late merry Christmas to everyone! I hope you have enjoyed your holidays with family or friends and if you are as lucky as me, you are still on a break (more or less).

The last weeks before Christmas had been super busy for me. We’ve finished up the Cemus course, which came with many hand-ins, assignments and studying for the exam, of course. In this course we had a collective exam, where the whole group needed to work together to collectively pass (or fail) the test. It was a great experience: fun but very stressful at the same time. I must really say that “The Global Economy” was one of the best classes I have ever had and I can only recommend all Economics students to take a course like that. It felt like stepping out of a bubble (for once) and putting your subject into perspective with other disciplines. It surely didn’t train my Math skills, but I got a lot of ideas and inspiration from it. Hopefully I can manage to use this motivation for my upcoming master thesis and job search.

Apart from that, I have been (and I still am) taking the course “Economic Growth and Sustainable Development” at SLU, where we have the exam in January. After that the “only” thing I have left is my thesis, so I am planning on giving a little feedback on the program courses soon.

Hopefully I will have the time to post regularly again once I get back to Uppsala. For now I want to wish you a happy new year 2017. Take care everyone and remember that the deadline for applying to the master programs in Sweden is the 16 January (for the autumn semester!). Find more information here.

Vi ses nästa år!
