Our ambition at FEB is to be a world class, and truly international, school of economics and business that excels in the global arena for research and education, a school that successfully competes in the global market for students, staff, and resources. In order to fulfill this task we strongly emphasise ‘internationalization at home’, the increase of student and staff diversity and the employability of our students. A clear international focus and international collaborative networks in research and teaching are necessary characteristics of our strategy.
To enhance the scope and depth of internationalization at FEB, the Faculty Board in coordination with the central University administration, initiated several multi-year internationalization pilot projects. The goal of these projects is to deepen internationalization at the Faculty by creating and utilising FEB’s diverse and inclusive academic community. The projects include:
1. International Classroom : strives to adapt the curriculum (currently in IB BSc and BA MSc) in such a way that the programmes’ students, regardless of their cultural background or nationality, feel equally included and graduates become well prepared to act as professional citizens in global society; the resulting adaptations of the projects will serve as a model for the implementation of International Classroom in other FEB study programs.
2. Language and Culture : aims to provide staff and students with the language and intercultural competence skills suitable to create an effective international classroom experience, an inclusive working environment, and a welcoming atmosphere at the Faculty.
3. Learning Communities : utilises informal or online learning communities to bridge the gap between theory and practice to enhance the employability of the participating students through skills development and networking opportunities.
4. Inclusion : endeavors to raise awareness about what it means to be an inclusive organisation and how such an organisation benefits from the quality of diversity by ensuring that members (staff and students) feel that they are being listened to and supported and have equal chances and opportunities to be successful.
