Research and education are carried out at:

  • Jönköping International Business School
  • School of Education and Communication
  • School of Engineering
  • School of Health Sciences


These four specialized and well-focused schools, each with a distinct profile, address a portfolio of exciting interlinked topics relating to some of the major issues of our time: internationalization, entrepreneurship, business renewal, innovative learning, a holistic approach to health throughout life, an interface between the economy and technology in the information society, and production systems for small- and medium-sized enterprises.

Jönköping International Business School (JIBS) conducts research and offers undergraduate and graduate programmes, a doctoral programme and executive education. Together these activities form an internationally competitive business school, especially in the areas of entrepreneurship and business renewal.

b

There has been a very positive development since the launch in 1994. This has been achieved by the expansion of courses, undergraduate and graduate programmes and research at JIBS, along with a hard and well motivated strive for development. Because of a fast recruitment process due to the fact that JIBS is part of a foundation and not state owned, we have been able to employ highly qualified professors making JIBS very competitive among business schools in both the Nordic countries and internationally. As of September 2007 there are 31 full professors employed at JIBS.

JIBS has rapidly established itself as being the strongest academic environment in Scandinavia for entrepreneurship and research on small and medium-sized enterprises. JIBS is internationally very well reputated when it comes to research in trade, infrastructure, regional development, media management, family ownership, and tax law.
