Master program in Business & Management

Business development is about developing a firm’s competitive position, its processes, people and products, its networks and resources. It is also about business creation – innovating business models, revenue models, and bringing new offerings to the market.

Business development and innovation

All business development is based on some kind of innovation that can make companies grow and develop to remain competitive in their markets. The change it brings can be comprehensive for the entire company, a part of it, or project-oriented to optimize smaller development processes. However, it always mixes theory and practice and includes areas such as market, strategy and leadership, areas that need to be managed in order to succeed in developing a business.

In the MSc program in Business and Management (MBM) you will learn to manage, lead and develop business. You will master the art and the ability to take initiative. You will see complex matters from qualitative and quantitative angles. You will also love to collaborate with others, because you have seen the fascination of diversity.

The MBM pedagogy and spirit

There is nothing more practical than a good theory and the MBM program uses real-life projects in the courses so that all aspects of the problem solving situation are present. SSE is the leading business school in the Nordics and has close links with the business community which makes it possible for the MBM program to provide you with unique insights into how academic knowledge works in practice. This means that you become extremely employable. Most of all: you will develop the abilities you already have and become the next version of yourself. A version that never stops developing!

MBM is a wonderful mix of energetic students who thrive on challenges and developing themselves - both individually and together with others - and this makes for a dynamic that extends far beyond the classroom. The unique MBM-mix comes from taking factors like grades, motivation, background and diversity into consideration during the admission process.

In the MBM program we are constantly looking for new talents with a personal drive and energy, eager to develop business for the future. Are you one of the new stars in our community?
