Clare Kauma, student, Global Management
Clare Kauma is studying the Global Management master's programme at Jönköping International Business School (JIBS).
“JIBS has the perfect match of programmes and courses for me, she says.
Clare Kauma is from Iganga in eastern Uganda and chose Jönköping University because it is among the top universities in Sweden. She says that JIBS provides students with high quality education and the international environment of the university is very attractive for foreign students. Most of her chosen courses are taught in English and she finds it inspiring to meet other international students with different backgrounds.
“This is the really unique thing about this university and is why I love it here. I also like the fact that I have the opportunity to work on a number of projects with students from different countries," she says.
Clare Kauma would love to work with global organizations such as the UN and points out that her years at JIBS have given her new perspectives and ways of thinking.
“I have acquired knowledge and skills that I will be able to use as a business leader. My ambition is to work specifically within an intercultural organization. My education at JIBS has given me skills that will help me easily identify and solve problems in the most appropriate way in this changing world.”
She warmly recommends others to come and study at JIBS, international students in particular.
"I think it's a great opportunity not to be missed! I have gained a lot of life experience through studying here," she says.
The international focus of JIBS makes student life at Jönköping University unique, says Clare Kauma
“I get so much inspiration from the people I meet here: students, teachers and those that live in Jönköping.”
Clare Kauma really likes Jönköping and describes it as a very beautiful city with friendly people and with lots of activities that take place throughout the year.
“I always meet up with friends, go for out for fika (the social coffee culture I picked up here) or a beer. It’s also a great place for doing sports, personally I regularly like to play basketball.”
