Do I need a visa to study the SSE MBA Executive Format?
If you are a citizen of a country that does not require a visa to enter into Sweden you can travel to Sweden and stay here for three months during one year, so no visa is required for the SSE MBA. But, if you are from a country where visa is required to enter Sweden you need to apply for a visa at your local embassy.
Throughout the SSE MBA program, some modules will be held off campus. These modules may be located in areas and/or countries that require permits or visas in order to enter. Since our participants come from many different countries it is solely the participant’s responsibility to find out what is required in their specific case, and if necessary to apply for and to undertake any actions needed in order to obtain such permits or visas.
What career services are provided by SSE?
It is important that you have your employer’s consent and support to study in the MBA program, and that your employer understands the investment of time required for this purpose. Often the MBA is part of a career development plan agreed upon by you and your employer. The majority of the participants are financed by their current employer, which means career services are not required. In case a participant is self-funded additional career services can be offered. "Managing your career" is also an integral part of the Coaching program offered.
When are classes scheduled? Are classes held in the evening or during weekends?
The program is structured around ten full weeks of classes held approximately every sixth week in Stockholm or abroad. In-class learning is supported by distance learning and extensive self-studies in between program weeks. Classes are scheduled Monday-Friday with full days and evening activities during that week. All attendance is mandatory. Estimated time for self-studies between program weeks is approximately 20 hours per week.
Is the program taught in English?
The program is held entirely in English.
Is it possible to study on-line?
No, SSE does not offer only online studies for the SSE MBA Executive Format. We believe in the meeting between people and learning through the network of top faculty and fellow participants from different industries and functions. However, distance learning is an integrated part of the program with the purpose to support and enhance the learning in the class-room.
