The specialization in Management will enable you to translate new ideas into direct action, make better decisions and lead others. Our goal is to develop your potential students to take on leadership roles when you graduate.
– gain real world experience from day one
The specialization is founded on a series of live projects with industry clients who view you as a consultant and expect concrete results. Working with projects within innovation, business development, and change means that you produce real value through real impact. Some projects will also allow you to seek out firms and industries of your choice. The program faculty has great industry and consulting experience, as well as experience from executive education. Coupled with the latest research and continuous dialogue with corporate partners, this ensures that the program contents always are updated and relevant.
"Students at SSE Master in Management receive a solid foundation in reducing complex business challenges to comprehensive decision sets and based on these are able develop perspectives and recommendations that are easily translated to actions."

Some perceive leadership to be a soft skill
– We consider it to be the hardest skill
Access the latest research and gain new perspectives necessary for your personal development and future career. Through applying your previous knowledge of accounting, finance and marketing, the specialization in Management further hones your skills in financial analysis, business planning, analytical problem solving, and creative business development.
Focusing on your personal development, the program also prepares you for the leadership challenges and responsibilities of project management and future executive positions. After the program you will have developed your understanding of team dynamics, project management, negotiations, and communications. Many of the teachers have extensive executive education experience, work part of their time as consultants and advisors to companies in Sweden and abroad, and you will receive the same leadership training that most receive after working 5-10 years.
