The Swedish School of Economics (SSE) MBA Executive Format is an Executive MBA from Sweden. One of the most innovative countries in the world and birthplace of companies like IKEA, H&M, Ericsson, Spotify, King, Mojang, Skype and Klarna.
The Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) is a private university founded in 1909 by leading members of the Swedish business community and among the school’s Corporate Partners you find some of the world’s leading companies such as H&M, Ericsson, ABB, Scania and Sandvik. The school is situated in the center of Stockholm, known as one of the most open and beautiful cities in the world, surrounded by water and green areas. The city is also a creative hub where innovation and smart business thrives. It is the second most successful tech hub in the world, only beaten by Silicon Valley, and the unicorn capital of the world, all per capita. One of the unicorns, Klarna, started at SSE Business Lab, the school’s world class business incubator.
Ranked as the leading business school in the Nordic Region by Financial Times, the school offers high quality programs and attracts the very best students. In the Executive MBA participants have a truly diverse background when it comes both to academic background, industry and position, and 46% of the participants in the SSE MBA 2017 come from outside Sweden. “A great mix of different people, professional backgrounds, approaches, opinions and cultures”, says Stéphane Egret – MBA, Packaging Innovator, The Coca-Cola Company Europe, Brussels. It opens up for broader discussions, more perspectives, better learning and an interesting long lasting network.
The SSE MBA Executive Format is delivered part-time, enabling you to continue working while studying. It has a focus on sustainability, and electives in Innovation & Entrepreneurship and Financial Management, all strong features of the school. Swedes are well known for their informal management thinking and team problem solving nature. This is an advantage when applying the MBALive® pedagogy when participants work on real challenges in real organizations. It enables them to go deeper, implement changes and present findings directly to organizations during the program, and learn hands-on at the same time.
“There is a tremendous aspiration towards learning and personal improvement at the SSE MBA, and a genuine search for best practice. It’s not just about “career chasing”, because the participants are already pursuing successful careers. SSE takes a long-term perspective on business and teaches you how to adjust to an ever-changing environment”, says Sébastien Leutwyler, MBA, Managing Director & CIO, CAPITALIUM ADVISORS® SA, Geneva.
