During the first year at the Business Development and Internationalisation program at the Umea University, the focus is on developing the knowledge about strategy, entrepreneurship, networking and international growth in established and new businesses.
During the second year you are given the opportunity to deepen your knowledge in one other area in the field of business administration. You have the opportunity to do an internship in a company for ten weeks. This possibility exists only at a few business schools in the country.
Studying abroad is not only fun and challenging for you as a student but also a welcomed experience with future employers. Internationalization is an important area for us and we are working continuously to offer you as a student many opportunities for an adventure in Europe or further away on another continent.
