Exchange studies in Business Administration and Economics

Linköping University is particularly proud of its Business Administration and Economics divisions, which offer a wide range of high quality courses in English. The students have the opportunity to be part of an international classroom which brings together, not only students of different nationalities, but a great variety of academic cultures and approaches to Business and Economics studies. The perfect ground for ideas to be rooted and students to grow!

In order to help students create an interesting study plan, we propose below a number of course packages. Each package focuses on a specific theme, where knowledge is built progressively as it is approached from different perspectives.

The courses in the packages are full-time, which means that students can take only one course per study period, and they are presented here in chronological order. That way, schedule conflicts are avoided. Courses from different packages can be combined, but students should be careful to choose only one course per study period.

Finally, students should make sure that they meet the specific entry requirements for each course before they apply.
