DIS Talks

Expand your perspectives on the grand challenges of our time, while connecting with fellow alumni.

The expertise of DIS faculty has always spanned a wide range of topics. Students today can choose to focus their studies while abroad on over 300 courses across 27 different programs. DIS Talks aim to offer you similar continued learning opportunities from the inspiring, talented, and diverse group of DIS faculty.

Whether it’s exploring different aspects of European geo-political challenges, Nordic parenting trends, climate change strategies, Scandinavian equality, engineering projects that will shape our collective futures, or Scandinavian design philosophies – DIS Talks aim to give you a deeper understanding of the world around us today. Re-enter the virtual classroom with us, whether you’re already passionate about the topic or simply interested in learning more.

Explore Stockholm

Have you wanted to visit Stockholm, but not yet had the chance? Or are you a DIS Stockholm alum, aching to ‘see’ the city again? Join us for this Alumni DIS Talk as we explore what makes Stockholm it’s own unique Scandinavian city.

On this virtual tour, you’ll be guided by expert DIS faculty as they report and share insights from various sites throughout the city on a number of topics. We’ll explore a variety of Swedish topics and we’ll also share with you the offices and classrooms of the DIS Stockholm program, which opened in 2016. There will also be a chance to win DIS Merchandise during the event!
