Standing on the shoulders of giants

Stockholm School of Economics

The Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) is a private university that trains young and mid-career students for leading positions in the private and public sectors. The school currently has 2,200 students and its researchers rank among the best in the world in areas such as health economics, finance, business law and economics.

The school was founded in 1909 thanks to the efforts of businessmen such as K.A. Wallenberg, Olof A.Söderberg and Joseph Nachmanson, and generous donations from the city of Stockholm and the state. Inspired by similar institutions in America and Europe, the school grew quickly in its early years. And in 1926, it moved to new purpose-built premises on Sveavägen.

In 1999, SSE became the first Swedish university to be fully accredited by EQUIS (The European Quality Improvement System) certifying that the school’s teaching and research in all fields have been found to meet the most rigorous international criteria.
