Dagens Industri: "Students at Stockholm School of Economics are thoroughly taught about sustainability"
The Swedish newspaper Dagens Industri (2019-03-16) writes about sustainability at the Stockholm School of Economics: the obligatory education track Global Challenges, the research center Misum and the newly started environmental and climate association SSE Students for Climate Action.
"Since 2015, Stockholm School of Economics has invested heavily in sustainability education and research.
An example is Misum, a research center where thirty researchers look at sustainable markets, financed with SEK 55 million over five years by the Foundation for Environmental Strategic Research, Mistra.
Another is the course Global Challenges, which received SEK 40 million from the financier László Szombatfalvy's foundation with the same name.
“Global Challenges is an extensive change in the course content of the Bachelor program. We have made room for this course by increasing the study intensity." says Lars Strannegård, President of Stockholm School of Economics."
DI also interviews the students involved in a new initiative on climate, who also want sustainability to be integrated in all courses.
