The Swedish Program is a small program affiliated with the prestigious Stockholm School of Economics (SSE). The distinctive features of the Program – our curricular breadth, high academic standards, commitment to cultural integration, university setting, and small size - effectively promote this multifaceted learning experience. Students take small, liberal arts classes in English and interact closely with their professors and peers on the Program and at SSE. Swedish Program students are part of the SSE community and have access to classes, facilities, events, student clubs, and social activities.
The Swedish Program poses a compelling intellectual and cultural challenge: to develop an understanding of how Sweden addresses political, economic, social, and artistic issues relevant to all advanced societies. This challenge reflects Sweden's impressive history of innovative responses to issues such as financial downturns, environmental protection, immigration, health-care, education, and gender equality. These topics are likewise studied in an interdisciplinary and critical tradition. Our objective is to promote a comprehensive view highlighting the country's achievements as well as its contemporary problems. Students and scholars come from all over the world to study in Sweden. The country's appeal extends beyond its social and political institutions to its rich traditions in the arts, humanities, and science.
