As a relatively young university, it’s free of the traditions that obstruct innovation and creativity. For instance LiU was the first Swedish university to embrace interdisciplinary teaching and research – blending technology, sciences and the humanities. LiU advocates sharing and collaboration, rather than isolationism and ”keeping my stuff to myself”. Students from overseas appreciate Linköping University’s flat hierarchies and hands-on approach. You address your lecturers and professors by their first name. Labs at LiU have enough capacity that you can often do some actual lab work yourself. Business successes Sweden’s population is just less than ten million – not much by world standards. But the country certainly punches above its weight in the business sector.
