"I look forward to finding my place in the world of international business."

Studying here is totally different from what I thought it would be. The education is demanding and fast-paced, which makes the studies challenging. The relationship between teachers and students is excellent, and when necessary, you can get advice and help from student counsellors and faculty.

I have gained a lot of knowledge studying at Jönköping International Business School (JIBS) and the university’s practical approach has given me the opportunity to try out my newfound skills. Here I learn not only from the books but also from my teachers and my classmates. Apart from the education itself, the experience of working together with international individuals will help me tremendously when it comes to job hunting and I look forward to finding my place in the world of international business.

I think the word that best describes Jönköping would be “cozy”. There’s a huge difference compared to my home city of Wuhan, China, where it is crowded and fast-paced. Here, there is no overcrowded subway, no industrial-smelling air, and no hurrying bread-in-mouth morning commuters. Every step in this city can be calm and happy. It’s an impressive experience and a feeling that I enjoy very much.
