The Swedish business association (Svenskt näringsliv) has evaluated a number of programmes offered by Swedish universities to determine their connection to professional practice. Stockholm University occupies top positions in the ranking list, with our Professional Language Programme/Kandidatprogrammet i arbetslivskommunikation occupying third place, which is the highest ranking in the Humanities.

“Companies based in Sweden increasingly use English and other languages for professional communication. Four years ago, our department started collaboration with the Department of Swedish and Multilingualism to design a degree programme that prepares students to work in such multilingual workplaces. We are happy to see that our efforts have been recognized by the business sector,” – comments Maria Kuteeva, programme coordinator at the Department of English.
