The Swedish government named the entrepreneurial programme at the Sven Eriksonsgymnasium in Borås one of the nation’s top 20 upper-secondary educational programmes.

At the heart, it is an economics programme that develops the individual on several planes. The pupil gains university-level knowledge of entrepreneurship and economics, while focusing heavily on communication and leadership. The programme also embraces a rounded cultural education, giving pupils the opportunity to go to the opera, cinema and art museums, as well as go on field trips to buildings and sites of historical and cultural interest.

We see the programme not as aiming to shape future business leaders, but to create individuals with the entrepreneurial know-how to shape their own lives. It’s an important mission that we want to support.
