SSE hosted Global Network Week on Nordic Entrepreneurship

Last week, the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) welcomed 48 participants from 15 prestigious Executive MBA programs worldwide for the Nordic Entrepreneurship course. We had representatives from AIM, Berkeley Haas, EGADE, ESMT, FGV EAESP, Fudan, IE University, IMD, NUS, Oxford Saïd, Strathmore, UNSW, Yale, SSE Riga, and SSE.

Over these days, Course Directors Mattias Nordqvist and Rasmus Rahm, along with Teaching Assistant Jennie Fahlström and Program Manager Pamela Söderqvist, guided participants through the program and blended lectures and workshops with guest speakers and company visits. SEB and Scania hosted very appreciated company visits and Väderstad, Mitt Liv, Summa Equity and PINC provided live cases. Guest speakers included Harald Mix, Jane Walerud, Victor Friedberg, Sofia Appelgren, Marika King, Henrik Gilstring, Christina Stark, Marwan Ayache and Reynir Indahl.

I never imagined it would be possible to bring together such a diverse group of people from six continents who have so much in common. It’s been a pleasure bonding with you, learning from you, and working together on group projects”, concluded one of the GNAM participants.

Professor Mattias Nordqvist and Executive Director Rasmus Rahm, PhD, have designed the Nordic Entrepreneurship course at SSE in a format that allows students to delve into concepts, mindsets, and models crucial for understanding successful entrepreneurship, with a particular focus on the Nordic entrepreneurial ecosystem. A key feature of the course is its embrace of the complexity of Nordic entrepreneurship, focusing on various themes relevant to understanding how and why startups and established firms engage in entrepreneurial activities and achieve entrepreneurial outcomes.
