Study abroad

Do you want to experience more of the world? Do you want to widen your international experience?

We at the Department of Business Studies have exchange agreements with around 40 universities in 20 different countries around the world.

Who can apply?

Students currently enrolled in the Master's Programme in Business and Management or the Master's Programme in Accounting and Financial Management at Uppsala University and who want to study abroad during their third semester are eligible to apply.

Uppsala University's Divison for Internationalisation also has exchange agreements that are available for application, but their application period and selection criteria differ.

Partner universities

We have collaborations with around 40 different partner universities in about 20 countries around the world. We offer exchange places in Europe, Asia and North America. Our partner universities are mainly Business Schools and we therefore assume that you will be studying Business Studies during your exchange. If it is possible you can however take courses in a related subject.

As a Master's student you can apply to universities offering courses on either undergraduate or graduate level.
