Short Personal Summary

Lukas is from Germany. He grew up in a small village close to the city Dresden. At the age of 15, he decided to start his first adventure abroad and moved by himself for one year to Ecuador. There he attended high school. When he returned to Germany, he went back to graduate from high school and to start his bachelor studies. After graduating from university, he decided to take a break from his studies and became self-employed. In August 2017, he moved to Umeå, where he started his master’s program. One of these semesters, he spend abroad in South Korea. In June 2019, he graduated from Umeå University with an MBA. He loves to travel and explore different cultures, working out, as well as spending time back home with his family and friends.

Why did you apply to the graduate program?

I applied for the graduate program because of the challenges that come with it. You will receive several demanding tasks and have to get used to new environments very quickly. This is very challenging but at the same time very rewarding. Furthermore, this program allows me to combine working with my passion for traveling.


What do you think differentiates Saab from other global companies?

I think what differentiates Saab from other global companies is the pure range of Saab’s product portfolio. Saab offers so many completely different products. This entails many challenges but also many possibilities. Therefore, it does not really matter what you have studied or where your interests are, I am sure there is a job within Saab that is suitable for everyone.


To whom would you recommend the program?

I would recommend this program to everyone who is interested in working for a well-established Swedish company. These two words can make a huge difference in what challenges you will face and what might be easier than in other companies. At the same time, you will be able to travel a lot, abroad and within Sweden. So if you are interested in that give it a try. Additionally, I would recommend this program to someone who is eager to learn and develop a lot, wants to step out of their comfort zone and challenge the status quo.

Can we contact you if we have additional questions?

Yes, of course. You can find me on LinkedIn
