We are happy to announce that Mars is our latest partnership company addition at Lund University School of Economics and Management.

Very known for their chocolate bars, but what was more of a news flash for some of us  was the company’s strong stakes within pet food, owning brands like Royal Canin, Pedigree, Whiskas and also Ben’s Original rice and Dolmio pasta sauces, to name but a few.

“We are very happy to welcome Mars into our group of partner companies at LUSEM. Their global brands and Scandinavian connection fits very well with the ambitious international and local agenda at LUSEM. The partnership can open doors for LUSEM students at different departments to engage in internships and – hopefully – for future job opportunities,” says Andreas Inghammar, Deputy Dean of LUSEM.  

With their Nordic headquarters in Copenhagen they now look forward to an exclusive partnership with LUSEM.

“We want to reach more people in Sweden, and we want to collaborate with a university which is prestigious and well known. LUSEM is perfectly situated and comes with a very good reputation. For us it is a matter of employer branding, recruitment and focusing our attention,” says Eleanna Psomiadou, Talent acquisition Partner Nordics at Mars.

With facilities in Örestad it can actually be a quicker ride for commuters from Malmö than Copenhagen and Eleanna explains that the work language is English, but that of course different sales teams can be all Danish, Swedish, Finnish or Norwegian.

“We look forward to participating in different recruitment events at LUSEM, and possibly giving guest lectures, especially in sales,” says Eleanna, adding that they currently have several student interns, and the aim is to have them in full-time position after their studies.

“We also hope to have more students with us from LUSEM in the future.”
