Uppsala University was founded in 1477 and is ranked among the most prominent universities in the world. Several famous scholars have worked at the University, amongst others Carl von Linné, Olof Rudbeck and Anders Celsius. Since 1911 eight Nobel prizes have been awarded to researchers at Uppsala University. On 13 December every year the new Nobel Laureates visit the university and give lectures open to the public. The university has more than 40,000 students and some 6,000 employees in nearly 100 departments.
Ever since the Department of Business Studies was founded in 1958, an international profile is a distinctive feature of its Business research. Many students spend one semester of studies abroad at one of the department’s 40 partner universities around the world. In return, visiting students from these partner universities spend one or two semesters here in Uppsala.
