International Stirling graduate continues her global journey
Thea one of more than 80 percent of Stirling honours graduates this summer to achieve a first class or 2:1 degree
Thea Brønlund swapped Scandinavia for Stirling studies four years ago and her international journey continues, with the new graduate poised to start a job with Bloomberg.
Thea, from Bergen in Norway, graduates with a First Class Bachelor of Arts degree with Honours in Business Studies and Economics.
Within a fortnight, the 22-year-old starts a full-time job as a Global Market Data Analyst in London. In her new post, she will provide the numbers, algorithms and analysis which makes Bloomberg the most sought-after financial data source in the world.
More than 80 percent of Stirling honours degree graduates this summer achieved either a first or 2:1. Thea, who is fluent in four languages, will be taking happy memories of Stirling with her.
She said: “I chose the University of Stirling for many reasons. I have always wanted to study abroad and it was recommended by a fellow Norwegian who had studied here. The University has all the resources you need, including fantastic sport facilities, as well as great flexibility with your degree.
“I love the location, the natural setting, and the fact that it is a small place with historic elements. It is convenient that it is so close to Glasgow and Edinburgh. Overall, the student environment is amazing.”
