I would just recommend not to increase in a hight rate the number of exchange students, because that may not help to have the same experience and interaction between the students



FINAL COMMENTS

Living in Sweden is a great experience. MOst of the people are afraid to go to scandinavia because of the weather, but I can assure you you won't feel it due to the nice and warm environment you'll be involved in. Don't hesitate to come to Jönköping International Business School...those might be the best days of your life
