According to the Swedish Foundation for International Cooperation in Research and Higher Education (STINT), which today published its Internationalisation Index, the Stockholm School of Economics is Sweden’s most international university.
Significant factors behind the result include the school’s international research and the large volume of inbound and outbound students. The fact that management and staff have broad foreign academic experience and the school’s extensive education in English also played a role.
“This award is an acknowledgment of our transition from being a Swedish business school with an international flavor into a truly international school based in Stockholm. We are very pleased that this is seen and has been highlighted in STINT’s survey,”
Lars Strannegård, President of the Stockholm School of Economics.
According to STINT, the Internationalisation Index is intended as a tool for defining internationalization in higher education and research, and for increasing commitment on issues related to internationalization.
STINT was established following a decision by the Swedish Government and Riksdag (parliament) in 1994, with the purpose of promoting the internationalization of Swedish higher education and research.
