KTH Global Talent Programme

KTH Global Talent Programme offers a unique opportunity for global branding and recruitment of international talents within your company's business area. With company-funded scholarships you will have the opportunity to engage with competence for the future.

As one of Europe's leading technical universities, KTH attracts a large number of outstanding students from all over the world to our 60 master's programmes. Since tuition fees apply to students from outside the EU, the availability of scholarships is crucial for attracting excellent applicants.

KTH Global Talent Programme is an exclusive opportunity to shape your future skills supply while at the same time allowing international talents to develop together with your company and KTH. Participating companies will get global visibility through KTH's channels and networks.

KTH Global Talent Programme is in an expansive phase where we actively seek new partners. Companies that in recent years have offered scholarships in collaboration with KTH are ABB, Bombardier, Ericsson, SAAB and Scania.
