Companies, governments and other public organisations throughout the world need people educated in economics, statistics and business to help them analyse problems and develop smart solutions.

If you are looking for a well-rounded business degree, the International Economics programme is the one for you.

This programme develops your understanding of economic theory, which allows you to analyse various socio-economic problems and understand the dynamics of our fast-paced, interconnected global economy. The combination of economics and statistics, which are at the heart of this programme, gives you the skills and tools you need to process and analyse data — skills that are in high demand when you embark upon your working life. Other such skills are English proficiency and the experience of collaborating with individuals from many different cultures.

The fifth semester offers plenty of options to specialise. Either by studying abroad at one of JIBS’ recommended partner schools, or by taking elective courses of your choice at JIBS, which also allows you to do an internship either in Sweden or in another country.

Special Selection

Jönköping International Business School has decided to reserve a small number of places on their programmes to applicants who are  particularly suitable for the education as well as the school's profile. The aim is to widen the admission opportunities for the candidates. Read more about the criterias.

Study Abroad or Internship

During the third year you have the opportunity to spend a semester abroad at one of JIBS Partner Universities. Besides being an experience for life, studies abroad provide access to unique courses, the possibility of specialization, language skills and an international personal network. You also have the opportunity to study elective courses of your choice at JIBS, which also allows you to do an internship in another country.

After Graduation

With an undergraduate degree in economics from this programme, you will be eligible for many entry-level professional jobs that require knowledge of economics, statistical analysis, and business in varying areas, such as environmental management, health, finance, regional development, or business development. Future work tasks might include doing investigations to gather data and perform market analyses, managing financial assets in private companies such as banks and financial institutions, or working on economic or strategic planning projects within public organisations such as governmental or municipal agencies. In addition, there are possibilities to work within international organisations such as the EU, the UN, or the OECD.
