A few days ago 24 talented students from 16 countries participated in a “Global Swede” diploma ceremony at The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Stockholm. Minister of Trade Mrs Ewa Björling and the Director General of the Swedish Institute Annika Rembe awarded students who has excelled within the area of innovation and entrepreneurship during their time in Sweden.
In her speech the minister pointed out the importance of international students. Except from contributing with unique knowledge within their education and research they are an important resource when it comes to the relations between Sweden and the outer world. The Study in Sweden team do agree!
The students are now a part of the growing network Global Swede for ambitious and creative people from all over the world. All with a very special relationship to Sweden.
