Participating in the Business Lead program was one of the best experiences I’ve had in Finland – I’m deeply grateful to Ramirent and Hanken & SSE for providing me a way to develop in the working life in Finland.
I have two Master Degrees and I’m also working on my PhD. Before the internship, I never dared to apply to a law firm! I did my internship with Dittmar & Indrenius and now I’m on my way to become a certified lawyer. And what’s more I have promised someone, that one day I’ll be a partner in a law firm. So what can I do? One day I’ll fulfil my promise.
My participation in the Business Lead programme was literately a life-changing experience because I was given a chance to do an internship in a company exactly where I wanted to work. I would like to thank Wärtsilä and my superior, who noticed what I am capable of and inspired me to develop professionally within the company. This was possible because of the great work of the amazing team of Hanken & SSE. Thank you for believing in us!
The Business Lead program was one of the best things that happened to me in recent years. After graduating with my masters degree, when I almost lost track of my career, Business lead came along. It allowed me to prove my abilities in a Finnish working culture, which most of us dreamed of. Thank you, Business Lead!
