As International Director, I warmly welcome you to our beautiful campus this autumn. During this year I have been in contact with many of you students, through e.g. webinars and I really look forward to meet you all in person! I am sure you have done a wise decision, choosing BTH as your  place of studies. I am also sure you will enjoy your stay in Sweden and that you might find your future opportunities here!”

May, Master’s Programme in Strategic Leadership towards Sustainability

Keep Calm and Move to Karlskrona: Welcome newly admitted students & future MSLS cohort! A warm welcome to you all as you are preparing to enter this little special town of Karlskrona whether you are coming from abroad or within Sweden. I call Karlskrona a special town because I view this town as being so small in size but big in potential. There is a clear mix of traditions of old heritage and modern IT sector growth, internationals and locals communities, isolated from the mainland while being accessible to bigger and interesting places like the surrounding archipelagos and other cities like Malmö and Copenhagen. One other thing that I have to mention is that I was so touched by how the teachers & staff engaged themselves so much in our wellbeing and were interested in getting to know us individually.
