"The Orkla Summer Academy allowed me to have a fun and challenging summer, while working on real life projects. We were given a lot of responsibility and were in charge of our own projects. After 8 weeks at Orkla I did not want to return to university, as the learning curve in the organization was so steep" - Connie Jacobsen
