In the annual Universum student survey The Nordic’s Most Attractive Employers, Nordea continues to be the most attractive employer for business students with an interest for the financial industry. We are also very happy to see that our increased focus on IT-talents is showing in the survey results as IT students have ranked Nordea as the most attractive employer in the financial industry.
