What’s the alumni network like?
Our alumni networks span the globe. Jönköping International Business School and the School of Engineering also maintain their own alumni networks.
What are the connections to local industry like?
We believe that one of the most important parts of your learning journey is to get the opportunity to try out your future profession via direct contact with Swedish and international businesses. This will give you valuable real-life experiences and cultural knowledge, making you more employable. You’ll also get the chance to establish contacts with future employers, as well as build a network of contacts in the business world. Many programmes at JU offer the opportunity to collaborate with companies in various ways – from student projects and customised courses, to internships and industrial placements. Nearby Science Park, a business incubator partly financed by JU, creates an environment for innovative students to try out and commercialise their ideas.
