Sciences Po – SSE
The Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) has an agreement to offer a double degree with the French university, Sciences Po in Paris, one of the world’s leading universities in the field of international relations.
The aim is to create a top-class degree offering for graduate students planning careers in diplomacy, international organisations, social engagement, as well as international business and financial settings where a solid understanding of political dynamics are a crucial success factor.
The collaboration leads to double master’s degrees, one in business/economics from SSE and one in international relations from Sciences Po.
The two-year framework will accept qualified applicants from around the world and begin with up to 10 students in the fall of 2015. Several curricular combinations are possible, and prospective students must meet admission criteria for the chosen Masters programs at both schools. The first year is spent at Sciences Po in Paris studying international relations, and its second year is spent at SSE in Stockholm studying business administration and/or economics. On completion of their studies, successful candidates will receive two master’s degrees, one from each institution.
The studies can be completed within two years, however this may vary depending on the program combination. Completion of this program will result in the student having approximately 135 ECTS, rather than the standard 120 ECTS.
