"I love that our class represents so many countries"

Anna comes from the USA. Her home university is Western Connecticut State University. She enjoys staying active outdoors with friends, from hiking and bicycling to swimming, and she loves music, yoga, and dance. She is an avid traveller and enjoy finding new places to explore in and around Stockholm. 

What made you choose KTH, Stockholm adn Sweden?
Sweden has always been on my travel bucket list for many reasons. Why not study and live here as well? Stockholm is the hub for innovation within Europe with a wealth of opportunities for startups. It’s been inspiring to see the likes of Spotify and SoundCloud rise from startup status to the worldwide music giants that they’ve become. I studied Communication and Human Relations with a minor in Business Administration for my Bachelor’s in the US and knew that I wanted a programme to develop my skill set further in an international environment with an interdisciplinary approach for my Master’s. KTH not only offered that and more, but is one of the most well respected and established universities in Europe.

What do you like most about KTH and your programme?
Our programme has many international students and I love that our class represents so many countries! It allows us to hear different points of view and perspectives from everyone’s diverse experiences. Within our programme, we have the opportunity to take classes with the Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship, where we collaborate with students at other universities in Stockholm.

What are your impressions of Stockholm and Sweden?  
Sweden is a beautiful country on the cutting edge of innovation and technology. I continue to be impressed by not only a strong focus on gender equality but with the focus on quality of life in Sweden. Fika breaks with friends and colleagues have become a staple in my daily routine!

What is your best memory from your time at KTH so far?
My best memory at KTH by far is the friendships I’ve made.

Are there any differences between studying at KTH and your home university?
KTH is a larger university than my home university in the US, but despite their difference in size, there is a strong sense of community with both universities, which I value greatly. There are many activities available for students and an abundance of opportunities to get involved in student life on campus.

What would you like to say to students thinking of choosing KTH for master’s studies?
Go for it! It was the best decision I made to apply.

Are you taking part in any student activities?
I’m a member of the Project Group for THS Armada, which is the largest student-run career fair in all of Scandinavia! It’s been a valuable learning experience where I’ve not only been able to forge new professional connections but have made many wonderful friendships.
