The SSE MBA class of 2019
53 participants with an average age of 39, age span 28 to 52, and an average working experience of 13 years. 40 % are women and 47 % come from outside Sweden, 19 countries represented.
Each class is carefully assembled by the Admissions Team. We strive for diversity in the class. A more diverse group makes for broader case discussions, more perspectives, better learning – and excellent networks.
Our classes represent a wide range of backgrounds. Your fellow participants will typically represent industries such as manufacturing, automotive, forestry, health care, pharmaceuticals, IT, telecom, banking etc. Participants may work in small companies, large multinationals, or the public sector, and some are entrepreneurs or researchers. With about 50 participants in each group, around half will have a non-Swedish or multinational background, and most will have extensive international experience academically and/or professionally.
This is a unique opportunity to interact with high-caliber individuals from different industries that you would not otherwise be exposed to and increases your learning.
