Faculty & Professional Development in International Business (FDIB/PDIB)
Scandinavia: Innovation and Sustainability
June 13-25, 2022
Sweden (Stockholm & Luleå)
This FDIB/PDIB to Sweden (Stockholm & Luleå) will showcase the advancements and uniqueness of Nordic innovation and technology entrepreneurship, with a particular focus on the importance of sustainability in creating business solutions.
The Nordic business culture of collaboration and openness, as well as its focus on flat organizational structures, has led to a high concentration of innovative entrepreneurs and born-global companies, some of which are now leaders in their respective industries worldwide. The Scandinavian region is the birthplace of prominent innovative companies such as Ericsson, Skype, Spotify, Maersk, and Novo Nordisk, among others. Additionally, Stockholm is second only to Silicon Valley for the number of Unicorns – billion-dollar tech companies – per capita (2015), and the density of start-ups in Sweden is four times higher than in the US (OECD, 2016).
The Nordics are also global leaders in developing sustainable solutions to today's world challenges. They are proactively addressing global issues such as the need for clean energy, sustainable urban development, and access to finance and healthcare. Nordic politicians and CEOs have embraced the ideas of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Accord, and have committed to industry practices that foster innovation while being responsible and inclusive.
