2018 Senior Series - Linnea Åkesson
Meet Linnea Åkesson, a senior who has been at ISM since preschool! She is Swedish-American.
Linnea has chosen the U of M, Carlson School of Management and plans to major in Finance.
She chose the U of M to be close to home and also because she really enjoyed her visits. Her entire family has gone there.
Ms. Åkesson was also accepted to the University of Indiana, Bloomington (Kelley School of Business & Honors Program), Miami University, Babson College, Gustavus Adolphus College, Wisconsin-Madison Business School, and Villanova.
The U of M has awarded Linnea the Iron Range Scholarship and the Study Abroad Freshman Scholarship. She is looking forward to taking a variety of classes, learning about Finance and other fields in business, studying abroad, and making new friends.
She says ISM has prepared her for the next step in life by providing rigorous courses and pushing students to be the best they can be.
She states “People are from all over the world at ISM, and I grew up with people from a variety of cultures.” She adds “It is a very close knit community.”
