Hello, I'm from Vancouver, Canada and I am a business student ( 4year bachelor of business admin. ) wanting to specialize in international business. Swedish and in a broader sense Scandinavian culture and how I precieve it to be, has always captivated me. What are the chances of me getting a "good" job with a bachelors degree from an internationally accredited 4 year university ? Mind you I do not speak Swedish; however, I'd love to learn.

On a side note: What disciplines of business are trending in Sweden at the moment (HR,Marketing,Finance,Accounting,etc) ? I ask because I've yet to declare a minor !

Thank you so much smile.gif

Without speaking Swedish, without work experience and without a Swedish business and social network your chances are between very little to none. Good luck.
