Christoffer Nisser ’14

Soccer and the Financial Analyst Honors Program

Hometown: Stockholm, Sweden

I chose UAlbany because…
I was recruited by an old coach. An old teammate graduated from UAlbany’s finance program two years ago. And I was interested in going to America.

Why finance?
I’ve always been interested in the quantitative side. Finance is a good program that I really like. I am a junior analyst in the University at Albany School of Business Investment Group’s industrial group.

Favorite professors and favorite classes

Nisser Sports trivia
I started playing soccer when I was five or six years old. I played hockey and soccer until I was fifteen and then had to choose one sport.I follow Manchester United and a team from home you’ve never heard of. 

What I’m proud of
In my freshman year, the soccer team finished last. Last year, with a new coach, we made it to the finals. I was named to the America East Conference Fall Academic Honor Roll and the America East All-Conference Men’s Soccer Team all-rookie squad.I’m proud of my GPA – English is my second language but I’ve made Dean’s List every semester.

What does the future bring?
I am looking for an internship in London or Sweden since I don’t have resident status here. If I could stay in America to work, that would be great. I’m open to anything.
