Professional education in the form of contract education

Executive and professional education accommodates the needs for competence development within an organisation. In Sweden competence development at higher education institutions is delivered in the form of "contract education". Contract education means that executive and professional education courses can only be commissioned and paid for by a legal entity, a company, organisation or the equivalent.
