The International Business and Trade programme of the University of Gothenburg provides a distinctive combination of training and knowledge about the functioning of multinational companies—large and small—in the global economy. As a student of the programme, you will enhance your understanding of the geography, processes, and organization of international business.



Continuous globalization processes of domestic economies have led to a situation where firms must face and comprehend the impact of global production, innovation, and trade networks. Consequently, there is a growing need for firms and managers to respond to increased opportunities and complexities of greater and more relaxed movement of capital, people, services, products, and knowledge as they are subject to, and must understand, stakeholders at national and supranational levels. The International Business and Trade programme of the University of Gothenburg offers a unique cross-disciplinary outlook on global business—international business and economic geography.
