Intro: Welcome! I'm at present moment a 25 year old Master student of nanoscience & Business Analyst. I have rigorously pursued my interest for business without compromising with my education within natural science, creating a rare ambidextrous professional profile.
Since I will finish my studies by November '17, I have weighed my options and opted for a career in management consulting. At the moment, I am trying to familiarize myself with the different firms, in order to ensure a good fit. I prioritize a great social culture, a global network and the opportunity to work with the top management of world wide Fortune 1000 companies.
Do take a look at my linked-in profile as well. I can be reached by mail at bjorn@bjornlarsen.dk.

Personal Profile

Trait
Rationale


Competetive
Through many years at the highest national level in an individual sport, I have developed a very competitive personality, and with it, a healthy attitude towards adversity. This means that I could not dream of trying to sleep during a 30 h case competition, and I put a, sometimes obscene, amount of effort into anything, on which I will receive feedback.


Social
I get a lot of energy from being around people, and I particularly like expanding my network and meeting new people. To me, diversity in the people surrounding me, is important, so I enjoy meeting people with different background than me. Therefore, I have volunteered a lot of my time as an international student mentor at UCPH and I have founded a club at UCPH science, where we work out together, the "Nanoscience Gym Club". Futhermore I enjoy playing ping pong on a hobby level in the Danish eastern division with some good guys I have known since childhood.


Adventurous
My adventurous side is visible through my larger life decisions. I chose to use a lot of my own hard earned money to get to the US to study after finishing my upper secondary school in Denmark. This was definitely the more difficult option, but I would not be without this adventure. The same can be said for my decision of going into management consulting rather than continuing down my, might I say, rather promising, path within Natural Science.
