Start of the SSE MBA Executive Format program

December 6 marked the first stage of an 18 month journey for a new group of MBA students at the Stockholm School of Economics. Over 50 participants are enrolled in the SSE MBA Executive Format 2021 Autumn program, an intense learning experience that prepares them to build, lead and develop organizations in the global arena.

"First week of the 19 month #emba at #sse completed. Blown away by the quality of the program and all the genuinely great people I’ve met this week. There is something revitalizing in learning about topics way outside the comfort of daily work. Grateful and delighted to be part of this ride 🌟.", says Rebecca Kastell, Director of New Business Integration at Tobii Dynavox, and SSE MBA participant.

The participants come from a broad range of industries and arrive with training in different academic fields and diverse cultural backgrounds. Of entering the program this year 14 countries outside Sweden are represented in the group, average age is 39, and 41% are women.

“The experience in this group is very impressive, so we look forward to working with them over the next 18 months”, says Karin Wiström, Director SSE MBA

The program is designed for working professionals who, with the support of their employers, work full-time while pursuing their degrees. All participants carry out a series of live projects in their organizations. These are projects that create positive change and measurable value for the participating organizations and hands-on learning for the participants.

“This is a great foundation for rich discussions and learning from each other, one of our educational cornerstones”, adds Wiström.
