In order to contribute to the long-term innovation and competitiveness of the business community in western Sweden, Göteborgs-Posten, in collaboration with the School of Business, Economics, and Law at the University of Gothenburg, is once again awarding a scholarship that covers the fee for the Gothenburg Executive MBA program, starting on October 5th.

The Executive MBA program at the School of Business, Economics, and Law in Gothenburg is a leadership training, given in English, that runs over 21 months. Participants work part-time while taking the program. The program is fee-based, and the cost of 510,000 kronor is paid by the participant’s employer. The Göteborgs-Posten scholarship opens the opportunity to participate in the program for someone whose employer cannot pay.

The Executive MBA program is based on the latest research in leadership and provides participants with a holistic view of business development and management, while strengthening their ability to lead in a rapidly changing environment.

Many of the lecturers come from the School of Business, Economics, and Law’s partner universities around the world. The international focus is also strengthened by the two visits to Asia (India and Singapore) included in the program, providing a global perspective on business culture.

Through the scholarship, Göteborgs-Posten aims to strengthen the local business community’s innovation and competitiveness and demonstrate the difference that knowledge can make. The scholarship is awarded to a person who is deemed able to contribute to a positive development for his/her organization and western Sweden. The jury consists of Christofer Ahlqvist, editor-in-chief Göteborgs-Posten, Josefin Meyer, marketing manager Göteborgs-Posten, Per Cramér, Dean at the School of Business, Economics, and Law, and from GU Executive Education; Håkan Ericson, CEO and Peter Salomonsson, Business Development Manager
