SSE graduates are very successful in launching their careers
Recent Bachelor’s and Master’s graduates from the Stockholm School of Economics are very successful in launching their careers according to our 2016 placement survey, which includes more than 2,000 alumni who graduated during the years 2013-2015.
The vast majority of graduates find employment within three months of completing their studies. Our Master’s students are more inclined to take their first positon outside Sweden than our Bachelor’s students. Not surprisingly, the most popular industries for our graduates continue to be consultancy and finance with other industries on the rise such as retail and media/marketing services.
“This is the second year of a longitudinal placement survey analyzing the career choices of young alumni. The results provide an immense amount of information to potential employers but also relay how we can improve future student experiences and help prepare them for their future careers” says Katarina Hägg, Vice President for External Relations at the Stockholm School of Economics.

97 percent of our Master’s graduates are employed within three months and 40 percent of graduates work outside of Sweden, mainly in the UK and Germany. 26 percent of the international students have decided to launch their careers in Sweden.

Results indicate that most Bachelor’s graduates continue their studies after graduation in Sweden or abroad (47 percent) while 43 percent go straight to work. 92 percent found jobs within three months after graduation. Consultancy, Finance and Retail are the most popular industries for our Bachelor graduates.
