Murat was born and raised in Växjo, Sweden. His parents were refugees from the war in Yugoslavia during the 1990s and ended up there. To experience new cultures and to develop as a person, Murat went to Shanghai, China, for his third year of his first-cycle programme.
“You do not only develop technically, but there are also soft skills, social ones, like how open you are to new ideas and so on, and I also learnt to speak Chinese.”
Murat enjoys languages and he speaks Swedish, English, Chinese and the Bosnian language, which is his native one. In China and the US, you learn how to absorb facts, but here you acquire an analytical ability that you can transfer to other subjects, and I appreciate that very much,” Murat Halilovic says.
“Suddenly, you become rather good at learning within other subject as well, and I appreciate that very much, because is such a valuable skill. Now, I am considering a PhD, preferably abroad. That is the plan,” Murat Halilovic concludes.
