Bachelor programmes

Jönköping International Business School (JIBS) offers 3 bachelor degree programmes delivered completely in English.

Admission to these bachelor programmes includes the opportunity for qualified students to study abroad for one semester at one of JIBS’ 200 partner universities situated on six continents.

All bachelor programmes are three years in length (180 credits).

Master programmes

Master programmes at JIBS give you an opportunity to learn more about areas of high relevance to the business community and to public policy, and at the same time receive a thorough academic specialization.

Some master’s programmes last for 1 year (leading to a 60-credit master’s degree) and others last for 2 years (leading to a 120-credit master’s degree).

Among the benefits being in a 2-year programme of studies is that you are given an opportunity to study abroad at one of our partner universities in the first semester of the second year, and you receive an education that makes you better prepared to take on cutting-edge research and doctoral studies in a particular subject area.

As an alternative to studying abroad in the second year, you may participate in elective courses at JIBS. Some of the elective course credit may be associated with an internship for a business or government related project (if you are successful at finding such an internship with academic merit), so real life experience can be included in your education.
