This year we were – as always – excited and happy to greet six fresh summer interns welcome to Markets trading floor in Oslo. On arrival on their first day, last week, Mina, Magne, Henrik, Anna Emilie, Niels and Andreas were as excited – as we were – to start their eight weeks’ internship with us. They are in for eight busy and fun weeks, and you get a chance to follow them closely as they will share their thoughts and experiences of working in Nordea Markets in weekly blog posts here on Nordea Markets’ career blog, starting this week.
In the meantime, let’s introduce the cool team of summer interns in Oslo. Learn about their background, why they chose to apply for a summer internship at Nordea Markets and hear about their expectations and aspirations for the internship (which we will do out utmost to live up to).
Meet three of this year’s summer interns at Markets in Oslo:
Mina Randjelovic (age 24), studies at the BI Norwegian Business School:
“I am a 4th year student at the MsC In Business programme at the BI Business School, with a major in finance. As I’m starting my final year as a finance student this fall, I consider practical experience within the field invaluable and extremely important. I applied for this Summer Internship program because I viewed it as both challenging and rewarding.
My expectations are high, and I expect to discover new fields and areas of work where I can evolve and gain new knowledge. I am also looking forward to putting my existing skills to the test, and see how I can contribute to a new environment. I am confident that I am spending my summer in the best way possible; meeting new, interesting people and gaining work experience from one of the most attractive workplaces in Norway. I am also looking forward to participating in the Nordea Markets Summer Academy, as I believe it will provide me with a great opportunity to learn about various subjects from experienced people in their respective fields.
My main goal this summer is to get the chance to practice what I have studied, and hopefully, contribute in a positive way to the everyday business activities of Nordea Markets.”

Magne Eie Ledsaak (age 23), studies at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology:
“I’m currently studying for a Master of Science at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. My field of study is Industrial Economics and Technology Management with a specialization within Investments and Finance with one year left until graduation.
The eight week internship program in the FICC department in Nordea Markets offers a great opportunity to learn more about the various financial markets from a practical perspective. Also, I am excited to get to know Nordea as it has a broad presence in the Nordic countries.”

Henrik Hvesser (age 25), studies at the Norwegian School of Economics:
“I am currently studying MSc in Economics and Business Administration – Finance, at Norwegian School of Economics (NHH). My master’s degree will be finalized at UC Berkeley the coming fall. I applied for the Nordea Markets summer internship to get practical experience in my field of study.
I am especially looking forward to work alongside some of the brightest minds in the finance industry, from whom I expect to learn a lot. During the summer, I hope to be challenged with relevant tasks and discussions. Further, I hope to get valuable insight into different fields within finance, for example Fixed Income, Equities and Foreign Exchange. Lastly, I am very much looking forward to get to know the Nordea culture, as well as the people who work here.”
