School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg

The School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg has about 4,000 full-time students and 500 faculty members and staff, of whom about 100 are full professors or associate professors, and has an extensive network of about 160 partner universities and well developed connections with the surrounding society. The School was founded in 1923 on the initiative of local businessmen.

The School is accredited by EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA, and thus one of only about 100 business school in the world that are “Triple Crown” accredited.

Building on its history with deep roots in the local community, in combination with a strong international orientation, the School aspires to provide outstanding education within business, economics and law, closely linked to research and in an international environment. Programmes are offered at all levels; Bachelor’s, Master’s and PhD. The programme portfolio combines general and specialized programmes. Since 2013, the School’s strategic goal has been that sustainability should be integrated into all programmes.

The School consists of four departments: Business Administration, Economics, Law, and Economy and Society (including Economic History, Human Geography, and Innovation and Entrepreneurship), and in addition hosts a number of multidisciplinary research centers and units. As such, the School is broader in terms of disciplines and scope than most traditional business schools. The School has a long tradition of research and education within the field of sustainability. Sustainability-related research at the School covers topics such as climate policy, globalization, development and poverty, socioeconomic issues, business ethics, marine resource management, sustainable urban planning, supply-chain management and sustainable consumption to name a few examples. The School conducts extensive research related to most of the 17 UN Global Goals.
