Created as a partnership between Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship, Karolinska Institute and Carlson School of Management, this course challenges students with a medical industry valuation experience. The immersion portion of this class will take place in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. The city of almost 1 million is the cultural, media, political, and economic center of the country. It is located on Sweden's southeast coast on the Baltic Sea. The city is home to major Swedish banks and insurance companies, as well as famous clothes retailer H&M. The Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship (SSES) is a collaboration between Stockholm’s top five schools. They were established to provide the member schools’ students with education, training, and inspiration in applied entrepreneurship.

This course provides students with a unique opportunity to work on cross-cultural teams with students at the Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship to evaluate a medical technology or service developed by the Karolinska Institute in Sweden.
The course is designed to: increase students ability to work in diverse teams; help students develop a more robust understanding of how to evaluate a new technology or service from a global perspective; and increase students tolerance for working through ambiguous situations.
The benefits to students participating in this class may include:
- Gain resume-quality experience working on a live project.
- Learn about the medical industry in a global context.
- Set yourself apart by increasing your knowledge of the business environment in northern Europe.
- Develop life-long friendships with fellow students at the Carlson School and the partner school.
Students are housed at a conveniently-located hotel and will share a room with one or two classmates of the same gender. Because networking and community-building are key parts of the program, students will not have the option of a single room. Guests are not permitted during the program. Breakfast daily, a welcome dinner, and a closing dinner are provided.
