The University has over 15,000 students studying our 52 programmes and 1,000 courses, and almost 900 faculty and staff. MDH is characterised by close partnerships with businesses and the public sector in the region, making our University attractive to students - and our students attractive on the labour market.

MDH was founded in 1977 to meet the region´s need for research and education. The University is situated in the densely populated and expansive region around Lake Mälaren, about one hour by train from Stockholm and Uppsala.

The University is characterised by its close cooperation with companies and with the public sector in the region and by its distinct environmental profile.
