SSE MBA at a Glance
Why Stockholm School of Economics?
Why choose SSE MBA, Stockholm and Sweden?
SSE is ranked by the Financial Times as the number one business school in the Nordic and Baltic countries. The school is known for its high quality research, teaching, professors and students, and SSE graduates hold, and will continue to assume senior leadership positions within Swedish and international organizations. In Sweden business has always been international business, as any list of multinational brands will attest.
As being the number one business school in Sweden we attract the very best participants for our MBA program. Participants with a diverse background considering both age, nationality, industry and position. Here you will build a strong and interesting network that will last for a lifetime.
Stockholm is known as one of the most open and beautiful cities in the world, and you are surrounded by water and green areas. At the same time, SSE is situated in the city center, and you are close to culture, pubs, restaurants and clubs.
Stockholm, perhaps thanks to its modest size, is a creative hub where innovation and smart business thrives. SSE contributes with our SSE Business Lab, a world class business incubator.
Swedes are well known for our informal management thinking and team problem solving nature. This is an advantage when applying our MBALive® pedagogy to live projects and cases in the participants' organizations. It enables you to go deeper and truly implement real changes in real organizations.
Already in the first program week we start the course in Sustainability. For us it is imperative that sustainability is connected to all business topics, such as strategy, operations, accounting, finance and marketing. Consequently, we have chosen to integrate sustainability across the curriculum.
EQUIS - a respected seal of quality
Since 1999, as the first university in Sweden, we have been accredited by the European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS). This means that all our programs and research have demonstrated excellence at an international level.
EQUIS is an international system for quality assurance of higher education in business, aiming to raise the standard of management education worldwide. EQUIS is governed by the European Foundation for Managmenet Development (EFMD), which is an independent not-for-profit network organization open to companies as well as universities. SSE was one of the founders of EFMD.
SSE is also the Swedish member institution of CEMS (The Global Alliance in Management Education) and PIM (Partnership in International Management).
The successful Executive MBA applicant will have a substantial experience from business, probably as a manager or in a leading position. He or she will have the energy, drive and capacity to reach higher and do more.
Participants in the SSE MBA represent a broad range of academic and cultural backgrounds, industries and positions. They have extensive international experience, both from their studies and their professional life. Many have a non-Swedish background. A carefully selected group of participants contributes to high quality discussions in class and of course to learning.
The goal of the SSE MBA program is not to offer a prefabricated "Executive MBA-in-a-box" but rather to provide the best and most challenging Executive MBA possible. Pedagogically, SSE MBA provides a solid theoretical base combined with practical experience and skills training. Reflection is an integral and critical part of the learning process.
The aim is to combine knowledge, experience and excellent learning processes. Thus our professors bring not only academic knowledge, but also information and knowledge from research carried out in close conjunction with industry.

Accounting and Finance: Financial Accounting and Analysis, Managerial Accounting, Investments and Capital Markets, Corporate Finance

The SSE MBA Executive Format combines research based theory with practice. All participants carry out a series of live projects, both small and big, in organizations of their choice. These are projects that create measurable value and change. After the first module you will already have new ideas and tools to use and implement at work.
ChangeLive is the longest MBALive® project. Participants work in pairs to pursue strategic change within the sponsoring organization. The change should constitute a real improvement in the organization. It's all about implementing, not just suggesting a change on paper. The ChangeLive project is also followed up and evaluated a few months after implementation.
The SSE MBA program fee is SEK 465,000 (excl. of VAT and subject to change). This includes literature and teaching materials. Expenses related to travel, food, accomodation or other boarding expenses are not included.
