SSE ranks in the top for internationalization
For the fourth year in a row, the Stockholm School of Economics has been awarded five stars by STINT, the Swedish Foundation for International Cooperation in Research and Higher Education. The foundation measures how international higher education institutions are.
STINT annually publishes an index indicating how international Swedish higher education institutions (HEIs) are. Six dimensions of internationalization are included in the index and 28 HEIs are rated. The results we launch now are based on data from 2018. Effects from the COVID-19 epidemic will therefore only be seen in the index in two years’ time, after 2020 has been accounted for.
“Our goal is to become a leading international business school based in Stockholm. We’re happy to see that the index reflects our efforts. The current pandemic poses new challenges for us, as for many other international institutions, but it also inspires creativity in finding solutions for a new normal. Our collaboration within the European universities initiative and the CIVICA network proves that we can maintain close international ties and grow together, even in difficult times,” says Lars Strannegård, President of the Stockholm School of Economics.
The maximum of five stars was awarded to three HEIs: the Stockholm School of Economics, Chalmers University of Technology and KTH Royal Institute of Technology.
