”The knowledge you build up here is highly sought-after by companies, and you get to study a lot of interesting subjects such as innovation and different kinds of decision-making.”

Arlanda Pllana, student at MSc Management

”I got a mix of international students, but also a very good course plan. I was given the opportunity to choose courses in subjects that interested me.”

Jonatan Norman, student at MSc Innovation and Industrial Management

”The practical work is very valuable. We are not just sitting in the lecture room and thinking, but we are actually doing things for companies and contributing to their business.”

Dimitris Zacharopoulous, student at MSc Logistics and Transport Management

”I think the School does a great job in maintaining a connection between the academia and the industry, which gives a great perspective to the students and raises their level of confidence.”

Risper Gerald Yusuph, student at MSc International Business and Trade

”The School has different activities that bring us together. When we have assignments we are assigned into different groups so I get to meet new people and make new friends.”

Natalia Vdovina, student at MSc Finance

”To be an international student here is very nice. Everyone knows English, so if people don’t want to study Swedish – or find it difficult – they could easily survive without it.”
