Why did you apply to the graduate program?
I applied to the program since I wanted to have the opportunity to see a lot about Saab’s different areas as well as the possibility to work with Project Management. I heard about the program during a fair at the university in Linköping two years prior to my application and became interested directly.


What is it like to be a graduate at Saab?
Exciting. You get to experience your position at your home department in your daily work as well as getting the opportunity to travel and see other departments at the same time. Not everyone gets this opportunity.


To whom would you recommend the program?
One of the best things with the Saab Graduate Leadership Program is that every candidate has their own role at their home department, which differs for every candidate. Everyone comes from different educational backgrounds, which ensure that the program can fit almost anyone that is interested in working in the areas where Saab operate.
