The School of Business and Economics at Linnaeus University offers distinguished education programmes in economics, marketing, entrepreneurship and tourism. Our programmes are characterized by high quality, an international profile and close ties to the industry. In addition to this, we also offer an inspiring study environment with plenty of room for individual development, creative learning and proximity between students and teachers.
With close to 4000 full-year students the School of Business and Economics is one of Sweden's largest business schools in terms of the number of students. Yet, despite its size, the close relationship between students and lecturers remains a priority.
We offer as many as 13 bachelor programmes within business and economics and these form the basis of our education. We also offer 250 independent courses, seven 1-year master programmes and four 2-year master programmes.
Our programmes and courses cover a range of different subjects, including tourism, entrepreneurship, marketing, retail, international business and logistics.
Researchers from the School of Business and Economics participate in a number of research groups, such as:
Corporate Governance Research Group
Center for International Business Studies on Emerging Markets (CIBEM)
Linnaeus University Centre for Labour Market and Discrimination Studies
Center for Management Accounting Research (CMAR)
Center for Sustainable Active Ageing
The School of Business and Economics highly values its international character and, therefore, fosters its international contacts. Every year we welcome about 450 international students, while about 300 of our own students spend time abroad studying at one of our 135 partner universities.
Focus on discussion
Creativity and individual development are given great emphasis at the School of Business and Economics. The educational environment is personal and based on the involvement of both lecturers and students. Creative learning is always in focus. Exchanging opinions and ideas, as well as giving and receiving new impulses, lead to stimulation and provide a deeper knowledge.
At the School of Business and Economics we have tried to create an environment where all this is possible, and we feel confident that we have succeeded in doing so. The School is inspiring and modern, providing plenty of resources and space.
