Klaudyna, have your studies at SSES been useful?
- My studies at SSES have definitely been useful for my future work life. Having attended Ideation has equipped me with a useful toolbox and a practical sense of important criteria that should be considered while evaluating and developing a viable venture. Certainly, the understanding of such a vital area within business will serve me well in a broad range of future career situations. What made the course unique was the fact that the course instructor, Gregg Vanourek, incorporated his own experience from entrepreneurship in the lectures. This made the lectures inspiring and more practically oriented. Moreover, after each case or exercise students were provided with detailed feedback on their performance. This was very valuable and helped students progress throughout the course. All in all, my studies at SSES and the hands-on skills that I acquired have been a great complement to my more theoretical studies at the Stockholm School of Economics, as well as a great source of inspiration.
Who would you suggest should participate in educational studies through SSES?
- I would recommend SSES studies to everybody who is interested or curious about entrepreneurship and business in general. In fact, to everybody who wants to broaden their educational knowledge and network. Attending an SSES course is a great opportunity to meet new people from Stockholm’s top educational institutions. The Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship is an important initiative and a true opportunity for students to develop or cultivate their interest in entrepreneurship.
