The Bachelor Program in Business and Economics has shaped Swedish top students since its inception.
"The shift from Swedish into English is a natural step for us," says Professor Lars Strannegård, president of Stockholm School of Economics (SSE). "Business is increasingly international, and we want to reflect that – from the composition of the student body and faculty to the research we conduct and industry collaborations we build."
The program is designed to attract talented and ambitious students who want to contribute to the development of society in general as well as the development of individual corporations.
"In a diverse and changing world faced with greater challenges and uncertainty than ever before, it is crucial to build educational programs that are relevant and sustainable for future decision makers," says Lars Strannegård.
The changes to the Bachelor program don't just apply to the language shift from Swedish to English. The program will see a few changes to the curriculum as well. The new educational mission for the Stockholm School of Economics is based on a holistic view on pedagogics.
"We do not only want our students to have a fact and science-based mindset, we also want to educate them to be analytical, curious, humble and free-thinking people," says Lars Strannegård.
The School looks forward to welcoming new bachelor students from all over the world.
"We hope that they, like the thousands of Swedish students who have passed through these halls, will see the possibilities that Stockholm in general and the school in particular have to offer not only in terms of education, but also innovation, research and connections."
