Venla Karppinen

Venla is an undergraduate reading for Economics and management at the University of Oxford. She graduated last year from the Oulun Lyseon lukio IB Diploma School, and is enjoying her first-year studies at Oxford, trying to engage in many different societies. Venla found the application process relatively time-consuming and confusing as she did not have much help from primary sources; she is therefore more than happy to provide all her knowledge for passionate prospective candidates to make their process more enjoyable – and successful! After studies Venla plans to continue in the business world, and is currently familiarising herself with different options from investment banking to consultancy. In her free-time, Venla rows for the college first boat and loves to do other physical exercise, including tennis, gym and running.
