Great academic results
The motivation to why Swarnarenu Saha should be named Global Swede at University West is as follows:
“Swarnarenu Saha has shown great academic results both at University West and from her home country of Bangladesh. Her ability to adopt the Swedish system and culture, especially her strong commitment to Development issues and Community work in her home country along with her profound interest in the Finance Analysis subject makes her a Great candidate for the Global Sweden award. ”

- Global Swede is our way of thanking a number of outstanding students every year for choosing Sweden, and at the same time welcome them into our global alumni network. It is a challenging time to graduate, but with their experience from Sweden I am convinced that they will help build bridges between Sweden and the outside world, says Anna Hallberg.
Global Swede is part of the Government and Swedish Institute's work on building long-term relationships with international students in Sweden. The aim is to create cross-border and multicultural networks that will contribute to Swedish foreign trade and promote the work on reaching future solutions.
Global Swede alumni are part of a broad alumni network, administered by the Swedish Institute, which today comprises about 15,000 people from 140 different countries.
