• Vice President’s Column #127

    I talked to the Editor-in-Chief and asked what the theme of the chronicle was. She told me that this number of Nådiga Lundtan is inspired by the word innovation. I needed some inspiration, and the obvious thing to do in that situation was to Google the word innovation. According to Wikipedia, innovation comes from the…

  • President’s Column #127

    Is it not amazing how innovative students can be? Every day I meet engaged members of LundaEkonomerna that have found a new way to do something and by that solve a problem. It does not matter how complex the problem is, they will always solve it by bringing up a new idea or affect the…

  • Alumni: Max Nilsson

    In June this year, three years has passed since I stepped out from the beautiful building Universitetshuset with the sun streaming down my face as a freshly graduated Civilekonom.

    Last week, I missed my train home. It wasn’t a disaster, the next train was coming in just an hour; but that was all the same an undesired hour on my hands that had to be frittered away somewhere. I decided to spend it in a small, picturesque café in downtown Lund where I ordered…

  • The modern way to read newspapers

    It is impossible to doubt the influence of newspapers over the centuries. It has been our go-to source of information since the Renaissance Europe (there is a slightly global disagreement on how old the art of printed paper really is, but I choose to go with this era), where handwritten newsletters were passed on between…

  • Editorial #127

    Growing up in a family where customer value has been of great importance, since both my parents have been running their own businesses for as long as I can remember, and my older brother being an entreprenurial brainiac who studied at the Chalmers school of Entrepreneurship.
