I’m interested in creating something from scratch and have always wanted a job where I can develop websites and mobile applications. My education at Jönköping International Business School (JIBS) has, in many ways, helped me get closer to this dream. I have learned how to manage projects, how to work in international groups, and how to approach problems, and I can confidently say that I’ve gained the knowledge that I came for.
Studying here is quite different from what I’m used to. All my courses include group work, and since the groups are very international I have really improved my skills in adapting to other students.
Rather than studying abroad at one of the school’s partner universities, I chose to do an internship here in Sweden for a company called Höglands Logistik. My project partner and I were given the assignment of renewing the company’s website, which was a great experience for me, to see how people work in the real world.
The environment and culture at Jönköping University is warm and friendly. There are many activities for students, such as debates, sports and even a language café. As for lectures, the teachers help you to think differently and tackle the problem with a different approach. And you always have the possibility to discuss problems directly with teachers, who are usually easy to reach via email or phone.
It’s really fun to be a student here and you can easily spend all day on campus. You have places to eat, places to train, places to study, and you also have a student pub. Everything is close at hand.
