And it would still be free for me, right? (UK citizenship)
Free for all EU and Switzerland
Free for UK and all EU, EEA (includes Norway and Iceland) and Switzerland
How will EU/EEA students prove that they do not need to pay the fees?
You are required to provide documentation of your citizenship status in order for your application to be processed. After applying to Studera.nu, you have to provide copies of one of the following documents together with your application documents in order for us to verify your status:
* Valid passport
* Valid national ID card
* Valid identity card which clearly states citizenship
All documents must be certified. This means that another person must sign their name, print their name and provide their telephone number on each document copy you submit. This person, by signing, is certifying that the copy you submit is an exact copy of the original. A friend, relative or government official can provide this certification for you.
All documents have to be sent before deadline to:

There appear to be three Swedish schools (Lund, Gothenburg, Stockholm School of Economics) accredited by Equis.
Neither AMBA nor AACSB currently list any Swedish schools as accredited. AACSB is currently represented in Scandinavian by only a single institution in Finland.
There is no full-time MBA programs in Sweden or Norway right now. Their business schools offer full-time MSc programs and executive/part-time MBA programs.
So I don't know if they can get AACSB or AMBA without a full-time MBA program.
Blekinge Institute of Technology has partnership or exchange agreements with a number of universities around the world.
In the US, its partner schools are:
- Georgia Tech (USN&WR #35 National Universities; AACSB)
- U Minnesota - Duluth (USN&WR #34 Regional Universities - Midwest; AACSB)
Obviously "Blekinge Institute of Technology" is not a household name in the US. But anyone who does a little research into this school is going to realize that it is a quite reputable institution. In the tech industry, it wouldn't surprise me at all if an online MBA from Blekinge was preferred over the average US online MBA.
Not only in European countries, pretty much the rest of the world is like this; Asia, Latin America, etc...
The USA is very unique in its willingness to limit the powers of government (most left liberals hate that, but as a libertarian and a foreigner - so used to big government and burocracy - I think that's what makes the USA such a unique a succesfull country.).
Yes, strictly speaking the BTH degree is not an MBA. The actual degree name is:
Filosofie/teknologie Magisterexamen. Huvudområde: Industriell ekonomi och management
These both translate into:
Master of Science (60 credits). Main field of study: Industrial management and economics
Perhaps, but in that case it would be an awfully ignorant position to hold.
I reckon that sounds much more impressive anyway.
Going to be interesting to watch. These degrees attracted lots of applications from developing countries. Now with the new fee structure in place application rates should drop substantially. Should be super easy for Europeans to get into these degrees --- until they come up with the idea to charge Swedes and EU citizens for tuition too.
