Laura Väyrynen graduated in 2017 from the Turku School of Economics at the University of Turku with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Economics. She majored in marketing and had two minors: international business and economic geography. In addition to this, she completed a study module on responsible business studies. Originally from Helsinki, Finland, she decided to extend her international experience by doing her masters studies abroad after completing an international exchange program in Angers, France.
Even though she has been studying full-time for the last five years, Laura has extensive professional experience ranging from small companies to governmental agencies. Most recently, she worked at the media & investment research firm Corporate Knights as a research intern. Previously she worked as a project officer for international exports at the French Embassy and completed a PR & Media traineeship to promote tourism to Finland at Business Finland. During her studies, she has taken part in several extra-curricular activities, combining competitive athletics with extensive volunteer work for her student association. She was awarded a Silver Badge of Merit for her work for the association.
Watching "An Inconvenient Truth" in 2006 was Laura's first step towards studying sustainability. She has always been interested in environmental issues and from a young age, she has encouraged her friends and family to reduce their carbon footprint. Laura is aiming for a career path in leading climate change mitigation and resiliency efforts on an international level.
Outside of her academic and professional life, Laura enjoys travelling, languages, literature, and different kinds of sports.
