Direct Enroll | Business in Sweden
The College of Business Administration has partnered with Jönköping University (JU), which is a world-renowned university in a number of research areas related to its business programs. The main goal of the summer school is to provide students with academic and applied knowledge, to experience an international environment and to provide knowledge of the Swedish culture through a rich program of cultural and social activities. By living and working together in an intercultural students group during an intensive business program, students have ample opportunities to interact with peers from around the world, build long-lasting friendships, and widen their knowledge of global business practices.
