Why did you choose SSE and your specific program?
The main reason for me to apply to SSE was the fact that it is a two-year program. I think this gives you the opportunity to get more in-depth knowledge regarding specific topics you like, instead of just covering the basics. This gives you a better opportunity to figure out which angle of economics you like and perhaps consequently which career you would like to pursue. Besides that, you can distinguish yourself better from the huge herd of economics graduates by doing more specialized electives and perhaps even an exchange semester.
What is your favorite part about being at SSE?
So far, what has really surprised me in a positive way is that everyone is very ambitious. This is due to a combination of starting off with a set of ambitious students and having an ambitious environment on top of that. The amount of company events stimulates you to think about your future and being surrounded by smart and eager students, makes you push yourself more.
