A Small Program in an Internationally Acclaimed University

Built for those who Crave an Enriching Study Abroad Experience: Academically and Culturally

The Swedish Program is sponsored by a consortium of American colleges and universities. We are affiliated with the Stockholm School of Economics, one of the most prestigious universities in Europe for the study of economics, finance, and business. All of our courses are taught in English.

Engaging Curriculum

The Swedish Program’s curriculum is distinguished by its comparative – European – perspective and commitment to an innovative pedagogical style. Students can select courses which provide opportunities for active participation through small group discussions, tutorials, creative writing assignments, and study visits. Swedish Program students also have the opportunity to share the classroom with Swedish and international students by enrolling in a select number of SSE courses. Similarly, SSE students are able to enroll in select Program courses.

The breadth and depth of our course offerings can be demonstrated by grouping them along the following curricular tracks:


Public Policy, Sociology and Politics

What Our Students Say

“I had an unbelievable experience with the Swedish Program. I loved living in Stockholm. It is such a comfortable place to live in. It is an experience I won't soon forget.”

James Hunter - Hamilton College

“I couldn’t say a bad word about it if I tried. I’m totally enamored with Stockholm – I plan to live there one day – and can credit this to my experience with The Swedish Program.”

Robert Levine - University of Pennsylvania

“The Swedish Program is an opportunity for students to participate in one of Europe’s most prestigious academic institutions while experiencing the rich culture and life in the beautiful city of Stockholm. It sounds too good to be true, but my fantasy semester abroad has undeniably shaped my growth as a student and as a citizen of the world.”
