Stockholm Business School is a great option for students majoring in Business Administration or International Business. A broad range of courses is available to exchange students taught in English in the areas of finance, management, marketing, and accounting. At SBS, each term is divided into four periods consisting of five weeks each. Students take one course during each period and take an exam at the end of the period before beginning a new course. During periods 3 and 4, students often study two courses that last throughout both periods. Full-time studies correspond to 30 ECTS. Most courses are worth 7.5 ECTS each, which transfers as 4 HPU credits. Explore the full course catalog here.

For High Point University to recognize the credits you complete abroad, you must earn at least a grade equivalent to a C in the U.S. HPU will not accept credit for courses with grades of C– or below. Grades for all courses earned abroad are recorded on the international transcript. Credits are received by HPU as transfer credits, which means the credit is received but the grade is not. Your HPU grade point average will not be impacted positively or negatively by your study abroad courses.
SBS has limited campus housing for exchange students who apply early. Students admitted to the exchange program will receive application instructions for housing. Rent, from 15,500 (room) to 22,000 (studio apartment) SEK for the semester, is paid in two installments. Heating and electricity are included in the rent.
