“I had the pleasure of having Oscar on my team for almost a year at The Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce in New England and worked side-by-side with him on different projects and day-to-day tasks. I was particularly impressed by Oscar’s ability to juggle multiple projects and deliver new content ideas, which made a dramatic difference in helping our organization grow. He has a great work ethic and easily adjusts to any given situation with an eager-to-learn approach. He always brings a positive and energetic attitude and makes a memorable impact on the people he interacts with. Any employee would be lucky to have Oscar as a team member.”Sandra Spetz, Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce New England

Master in Knowledge-based Entrepreneurship | 2018 – 2020
During my Master’s program Knowledge-based Entrepreneurship, I focused my studies on a combination of theoretical knowledge together with practical experiences. Since the Master’s program was very business integrated, I got to be a part of several projects in collaboration with GU Ventures and run start-up processes for small start-up firms. The education mostly adressed the start-up phase, and the theoretical knowledge gained during class was then applied in start-up processes together with real start-ups, where we in large constructed/transformed whole company offerings.
Bachelor in Business Administration | 2015 – 2018
During my Bachelor in Business Administration, I focused my studies on Management theory, whilst also reading courses in International Economics, Statistics, and Finance.
EXCHANGE SEMESTER | 2017
During my exchange semester from my Bachelor’s degree in Management, I studied entrepreneurship and organizational behavior at Brock University (Canada, St. Catharines). While the semester very educative, I especially gained knowledge in collaborating with people from other cultures, a great asset when working in a global organization.
CERTIFICATE OF BUSINESS | 2013 – 2014
Right after High School, I spent one year at Santa Barbara City College (USA, California), studying Marketing, PR, and Business. Just like the exchange semester in Canada, the year provided me with both knowledge in the fields I studied, but also experience in living, working, and collaborating with people that are not set in the typical Swedish manner.
HANDELSSPEXET | 2015 – 2021
During my time as a student with the School of Business, Economics and Law, I was part of extracurricular activities in the Student Union, and more precisely a branch called Handelsspexet, a theatrical section where I have been able to give outlet for my theatrical side. Overall, doing this on the side of my education not only taught me about teamwork and the importance of collaboration, but also forced me to develop my time management skills to perform efficiently whenever I was doing something, just to manage my tight schedule. It has also given me solid self confidence for when talking in front of big crowds, and most importantly the value of some laughter here and there!
What Drives Me
I pursue to work in an environment which actively works with disruptive technologies or innovations from a strategic point of view. Especially using the customer’s core capabilities and create new offerings which would give them a competitive advantage in the market interests me a lot.
With my entrepreneurial mindset and an understanding of the power of a good teamwork, I constantly strive to create an open working environment within the different teams that I work and engage in. Be that through a leadership role or through feeding a discussion with innovative ideas, whatever that is needed for that specific team or project. I believe that the success of any team stems from gathering different peoples’ experiences, and working towards a common goal where I contribute with my experience and insights is how I like to generate value.
I find that the most exciting thing about strategy work is the process to grasp a very complex reality, make something concrete from it and develop a new idea that in my opinion is the best. That is something that really motivates me.
Conclusively, I strive to work in an environment where I can find expression for my personality. Where there is diversity among the personalities, and room to give outlet for them, I also perform best and can be a real asset to any team. Under those conditions I push the limits, learn, and make progress.
