Master Program in Business & Management

Contemporary business environments are marked by continuous and rapid change. Organizations, regardless of age, size, or industry, need to identify and pursue new opportunities for value creation. Are you curious about what challenges this brings? Would you like to take an active role in creating and developing future business opportunities for such organizations?

These contexts require innovative marketing campaigns, new product development processes, transformation projects, dynamic strategies and organizations. These are fundamental means for both nascent entrepreneurial ventures and established corporations that strive to maintain their edge through ongoing renewal.


The MBM program is based on a live pedagogy, where most of the learning occurs through real-life projects, internships and practical experience. You will work with real challenges faced by real stakeholders, who expect sound analyses and actionable solutions. These outcomes will be achieved by putting into action the theories and methods learned in class. Running in parallel to the courses, a skills track focusing on personal and social development will nurture your ability to manage yourself and the people around you.

The core curriculum of the program builds on the academic disciplines of management and marketing. These disciplines offer vital tools for next-generation managers who need to combine creativity and innovative thinking with market analyses and communication strategies, to manage projects and drive change within and across organizations, and to integrate knowledge from different fields and social networks.


The MBM program offers an intimate learning environment that stimulates critical thinking, open debate, developmental feedback, close relationships, and fruitful contacts that will remain useful throughout each student’s future career. Our faculty is passionately committed to each student’s learning: they bring to class the academic rigor of their research together with concrete insights on contemporary business issues, stemming from their ongoing conversation with various stakeholders.

All in all, the program rests on a vision of future leaders who are creative, entrepreneurial, reflective, and responsible. The challenges linked to global sustainability offer tremendous opportunities to such leaders. If you aim to be one of them, the MBM is the right path to realize your ambitions.


By focusing on business creation and development, the program makes full use of SSE’s and Stockholm’s distinctive advantages. SSE is the leading business school in the Nordics and has a long tradition of close links with the business community. SSE is a key academic hub in the Swedish economic system and with initiatives like the Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship (www.sses.se) and the SSE Business Lab, it will continue to be a preferred provider of business talents to the leading companies of the future.

In the same way, the Stockholm region is not only ranked number one for innovation, intellectual capital, sustainability, and safety, but it is also globally celebrated as an entrepreneurial ‘hotspot’, constantly giving birth to new groundbreaking ventures, from Skype to Spotify and from King.com to Acne.
