The Stockholm School of Economics

Be Among Swedish Students!

The Stockholm School of Economics is a relatively small and selective institution enrolling approximately 2,000 students in various undergraduate and graduate programs.

The university’s location is convenient and popular with students. Located in the middle of Stockholm, SSE is close to cafés, restaurants, museums, concert halls, and all forms of public transportation.

Our students have access to all the activities, clubs, sports teams, and events organized by the Student Association (SASSE) at the Stockholm School of Economics. SASSE is considered one of the most active student associations in all of Europe. We also have a “Buddy Program” organized through SASSE which gives our students the opportunity to meet SSE students very soon after arrival.

In addition, SSE students can enroll in a select number of Swedish Program courses, and Program students can enroll directly in a select number of SSE courses, giving you the opportunity to share the classroom with Swedish and other international students.

Your Competitive Advantage

Our Integration at the Stockholm School of Economics

The economic reality for today’s college students is that finding the right job is difficult. Your educational choices are crucial to your success in finding fulfilling and financially rewarding employment after graduation. This is one of the reasons you tried so hard to get into the best college or university. We want you to recognize that where you decide to study abroad can also have a positive effect on your chances for further graduate study or in landing a great job.

How? You should clearly choose a study abroad program that fits your academic needs, intellectual curiosity, and cultural interests. The value of study abroad is that you have the opportunity to learn about cultural differences, as you gain a better understanding of yourself and your own country. By choosing a study abroad program with international prestige, you can accomplish all of this, while simultaneously boosting your chances of success after graduation.

The Swedish Program’s affiliation with the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE), one of Europe’s most highly recognized universities, will make you stand out when you become a candidate for graduate studies or when you begin your job search. We have alumni who have reported back to us, that at their first job interview, one of the first questions was “what was it like to study at SSE.” The most well-known multi-national corporations, investment and consulting firms, as well as non-profit organizations and foundations, come to SSE every semester to recruit students.

So we invite you to challenge yourself and choose The Swedish Program. Our commitment to high academic standards and academic and cultural integration at the Stockholm School of Economics, will give you an invaluable competitive advantage as you move forward in your education and career.
