Why did you choose SSE?
I did not know about SSE until a professor in my undergraduate program suggested me as a possible university to apply for a master. I listened to his advice and I submitted an application. Eventually it turned out to be my best option among those who responded, so I chose to come to Stockholm. After one year, I am still convinced of my choice.
What is your favorite part about being at SSE?
Its small size. Being at SSE does not only mean to receive good education, but also feeling part of a community where everybody knows each other. Professors are approachable, the President meets you personally on your first day at the school, and the student association is just amazing.
Why would you encourage others to apply to SSE?
It is a great school in a beautiful city. Studying at SSE means to receive an excellent business education by studying in a school with a great reputation among Swedish and international employers. And it is free for European students, which is quite an advantage if compared to other comparable-level business schools.
