Linnéakademien Reunion Day

The Reunion Day on 19th of May 2022 is an event to celebrate the successful International Sponsorship programme funded by the Linnaeus Academy Research Foundation (LARF) and business sponsors, in collaboration with the Linnaeus University, undertaken since many years.

Lars Malmborg, responsible for the International Sponsor Programme at LARF was the initiator and moderator of the day, welcoming seven international Alumni from the School of Business and Economics. The students have finalized their degrees from any of the international programmes in Kalmar; Leadership and Management in International Contexts, International Business Strategy, Tourism and Sustainability, or  have studied at the Linnaeus Summer Academy.

Also taking part in the reunion day was the LARF secretary, programme directors and coordinators from the School of Business and Economics, Lnu communications department as well as representatives from Kalmar municipality and the partner company AIFM.

The day offered sessions for exchange of experiences between the alumni students, originating from, among others, Armenia, Bangladesh, Iran, Kenya and USA but who now work either in their home country or the Nordic countries. There was also a presentation by Cecilia Kullman, Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce (SACC) presenting the internship-study collaboration between SACC, AIFM, represented by Jonathan Taylor, and Lnu.
