One of Europe’s leading business schools with unique ties to the Scandinavian and Nordic business communities
What is Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) best known for?
SSE is an international business school in the heart of Stockholm offering rigorous education in business administration and economics at all levels. SSE places great value on the development of business skills and entrepreneurship, encouraging creativity and passion that turns ideas into real projects, often through our world-class business accelerator, SSE Business Lab.
SSE has been ranked by the Financial Times as the best business school in the Nordic and Baltic countries and is accredited by EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System), certifying that all main activities – teaching as well as research – are of the highest international standard. SSE is also the only Swedish member institution of CEMS (The Global Alliance in Management Education) and PIM (Partnership in International Management).
What kind of programmes does SSE offer?
SSE offers five two-year master’s programmes:
- Accounting and Financial Management
- Business & Management
- International Business
We offer international double degrees with Bocconi, Italy in finance; St. Gallen, Switzerland in economics; and Sciences Po, France in management, marketing, finance and economics. We also collaborate with Georgetown University, USA through the Wallenberg International Fellows Program.
What’s the alumni network like?
91% of master’s students find employment within 3 months of finishing their studies, and SSE provides a broad range of opportunities for alumni to engage with each other and current students and strengthen and refresh their professional skills. SSE also benefits greatly from the involvement of the many alumni who generously serve as mentors, give talks and participate in panel debates, amongst other activities.
What are ties to local industry like?
Since its founding in 1906, SSE has nurtured close ties to the business community, with over 110 current corporate partners. These links offer students an opportunity to meet and interact with companies and international leaders from both business and government on a regular basis and to combine theory with practice. One such example is the annual Nobel Lecture, given at SSE by the winners of the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel.
