Executive Faculty

The Executive Faculty programme at the School of Business, Economics and Law offers experienced practicians and specialists the opportunity to develop their expertise by creating time and scope for learning and reflection in an academic environment.

With Executive Faculty, the School wishes to further enhance its cooperation with trade and industry and the public sector by offering a long-term, structured programme for mutual benefit.

"I think EF is an excellent way to build bridges between academy and society. For me personally it is also stimulating to meet new people; students as well as other professionals." Anders Roth, Göteborgs stad, Trafikkontoret


"Taking part in the Executive Faculty has allowed me to develop my own academic network, but it has also meant that the entire legal function’s relations with the School of Business, Economics and Law have improved. The fact that we have made a lot more student contacts is particularly pleasing." Sofia Frändberg, Volvo Group

“Taking part in the Executive Faculty has been informative for me, in a number of ways. When we allowed students to work on “Live Projects”, not only did they resolve problems for my company, but they also gave me the opportunity to reflect on how to devise tasks for both students and companies in the best way possible.” Viking Johansson, Volvo Logistics
