I was convinced this programme would help me secure the right skill set, necessary to thrive in my future career – and rightly so. The experience has been awesome.
I chose Jönköping because Swedish education is trusted and esteemed across the globe, and JIBS is the first university in Sweden that has gained both EQUIS
and AACSB certification.
The university not only imparts knowledge but also familiarizes its students to factual scenarios through simulation games, case studies and group activities. Research is a focus along with entrepreneurial coaching. Faculty is highly competent, friendly, and have a strong grasp on their subject areas.
As students, we were encouraged to think independently, creatively and critically, thanks to the informal and nonhierarchical nature of Swedish society, where everyone is expected to contribute ideas and opinions.
Besides, Jönköping is the hub of logistics for Scandinavia. Hence the programme enjoys good links with major companies in the region, which paves the path for site visits and corporate heads visiting as guest speakers.
As a result I have learnt how to balance different interests, needs and ideas to bring out the best in everyone and solve complex issues as a team – vital skills for a global career, where teamwork across cultures is the norm rather than a need.
All in all I feel I’ve been well prepared for real-life situations. It’s a great asset in my position as Group Head of Supply Chain with Treet, a highly reputed and one of the most successful business groups in Pakistan, currently exporting its products to more than 60 countries. My role is to manage the end-to-end supply chain operations ensuring the business needs are served effectively and proficiently.
I’d encourage anyone to apply for this programme, not only for its academic excellence. JU has its own lifestyle in which you will indulge immediately with new friends from across the world. You will learn about different cultures, languages and values. You will love the Swedish culture, beautiful landscape, amazing people and modern lifestyle.
