Specific Entry Requirements
What counts as a certain subject can vary between different universities. On this site we explain more about what the Department of Business Studies count as business and statistics.
Some of our Master's Programmes requires 90 ECTS credits of business studies and some also requires 15 ECTS credits of statistics. 60 ECTS credits equals one year of full time studies.
For the courses to count as business, they need to be for example
“Economics” is another subject in Sweden, and falls under another Department at Uppsala University. Courses in economics do not count as business. The same thing goes for “Business Law”. Courses such as “Business English” would count as a language course.
For the courses to count as statistics, they need to be named something like
- Business Math
- Quantiative Methods
Pure mathematics courses or research courses do not count.
Convertion of credits to ECTS credits
In the Swedish academic system one year full time studies equals 60 ECTS credits, 30 ECTS credits per semester. A Bachelor's Degree equals 180 ECTS credits. How credits from a University that uses another system than ECTS, are converted to ECTS varies, depends on how the courses on the transcript is presented.
If the transcript shows courses for each semester, we convert each semester separately. 30 is divided by the number of credits for one semester. That number is then multiplied with the credits in business/statistics. The number of ECTS credits for each semester are added.
If the academic year has three semesters or presents courses for one year at the time, we convert one year at the time. 60 is divided by the number of credits for one semester. That number is then multiplied with the credits in business/statistics. The number of ECTS credits for each semester are added.
If the transcript just shows a long list of courses, not divided into semesters or years, we covert to ECTS for the whole degree. 180 is divided by the total number of home university credits. That number is then multiplied with the credits in business/statistics.
