Studying at the Stockholm School of Economics

The Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) is one of Europe’s leading business schools and has been ranked as the no. 1 business school in the Nordic and Baltic countries over fifteen years in a row by the Financial Times. SSE offers programs of the highest international standards, including Bachelor, Master, PhD, MBA and Executive Education programs. The School also conducts world-class research.

Every program is developed in close cooperation with the research and business communities, which give SSE’s graduates great potential to attain leading positions in companies and other organizations. More than 90% of SSE’s MSc graduates are employed within three months of graduation and more than 80% received a job offer before they even graduated.

The School is accredited by EQUIS, certifying that all of the main activities – teaching as well as research – are of the highest international standards.

SSE is also the only Swedish member institution of CEMS and PIM, which are collaborations between top business schools worldwide, contributing to the high quality SSE is known for.

The Location

Stockholm is not only the capital of Scandinavia, but is also considered to be one of the most modern and open cities in the world and excels in the areas of sustainability, education, IT, social welfare and culture.

To study in Stockholm is to broaden your horizons in a metropolitan jewel – encrusted with beautiful archipelago islands, sweeping green parks and nature reserves. Stockholm is regarded by many to be one of Europe’s most beautiful capitals with its many bridges connecting the islands that make up the city center.

Stockholm is known to pick up quickly on international influences. With a broad ethnic spectrum, the latest trends within fashion, culture, art, and music quickly take root. Restaurants with cuisine from every corner of the world jostle with cafés, pubs and night clubs, galleries and museums, large shopping centres and unique boutiques.

If you consider the great musical exports such as Abba, Roxette, Robyn, Avicii, Zara Larsson and Max Martin, you can just imagine the melting pot of up and coming artists that Stockholm represents.

Financial Aid

Citizens of an EU/EEA country or Switzerland are not required to pay tuition fees. Non-EU/EEA citizens are generally required to pay SEK 180,000 per academic year.

SSE offers several scholarships that fully or partially cover the tuition fees through generous private donations. All scholarship applications are assessed by a selection committee, taking into consideration the relevance and the quality of the personal motivation, academic excellence, relevant extra-curricular activities, program cohort diversity and the distribution of scholarships across all programs. You can find more information regarding the tuition fees and scholarships on SSE’s website.


For more than fifteen years, SSE has been ranked as the number one business school in the Nordic and Baltic countries by the Financial Times.

SSE participates in three rankings conducted by the Financial Times:

  • FT Master in Management ranking 2023:
    19th out of 100 participating business schools
  • FT Master in Finance ranking 2023:

  • FT European Business School ranking 2022:
