ABOUT ME

My name is Niklas and I study Business Administration at Arcada University of Applied Sciences in Helsinki. During my time at Arcada, I fell in love with marketing, and so I decided to choose marketing as my major. I have now studied both its traditional and digital forms.

Some of my interests lie in; creating quality customer experiences, branding, communication, conveying company values and reaching out to the customer in new fun ways.

Beside my studies, I have been active in different student organisations, including being a member on the boards of the student association Handel och Service Studerandeförening and the student nation Nylands Nation. I have also held the position of student-representative on different boards and councils at Arcada.

VID CAMPUS

Vid Campus cover

Vid Campus is a podcast that discusses topics surrounding the lives of university students in the Swedish parts of Finland. My friend and I started this project during our second year at Arcada, as we wanted to share the culture around studying at the tertiary level. In the episodes, we discuss with our guests about being tutors, going abroad, what traditions there is surrounding the studies and much more.

The podcast is available in Swedish, with some episodes in English. Altogether it consists of a collection of 10 episodes. Streamable on Soundcloud and Apple Podcast.
