I have always been passionate about international companies and business on a multinational level, and this programme has provided me with the knowledge and skills to better understand global business.
After graduating, I hope to continue with a Master’s here at JIBS and later find work within an international company.
Many real-world examples are introduced and discussed throughout the programme, which makes it all relevant! In the Marketing Management course, for example, we had the possibility to do market research for a company called Nexus. The process of meeting managers at the company and gaining insight into their business was essential to understanding how a global company has adapted to the local Swedish market.
I would never have imagined that in just a few years, I would have participated in so many practical projects, including the work I’ve done during my current internship over the last year. Nor would I have guessed that I would sit as a board member and represent 1,300 students in the student union, or become fluent in Swedish thanks to the additional courses offered to international students.
JU’s campus is modern and impressive. It’s amazing how the library has been reconstructed to be a non-traditional, student-friendly zone. The environment here is warm and welcoming, and the equality of international and Swedish students is excellent.
I’m also impressed by the many student events organized by the Student Union, and I think it’s fantastic that we have our own student club with no entrance fee and reasonable prices.
