Malmö University

Malmö University is an innovative, urban and international institute of higher education which contributes to the development of a fairer and more inclusive society. This is reflected in our research, our education and in our cooperation with various stakeholders. Utilising a variety of disciplines can widen perspectives and increase our number of vantage points from which we can better understand society. Identifying and addressing the societal challenges of the future is something we have always prioritised.

Through collaboration we want to create, share and spread knowledge with an ambition to understand, explain and develop society – at a regional, national and international level. It is only natural that we attract students who want to question the world around them and who later choose professions that are socially responsible. The belief that openness and inclusivity enrich our diverse society is inherent in what we do. The fact that two out of three of our students are first generation academics is a testament to our efforts in this regard.

24,000 students, of which 12,300 are enrolled on a full – year basis
1 800 employees, of which 75 are professors and 400 are doctoral – level teachers
