Preparatory course in Mathematics

August 08 - 19, 2022: Preparatory course in Mathemathics (recommended but not compulsory)

We offer a two-week Mathematics course prior to the compulsory introduction week. The course is recommended but not compulsory. The purpose of this preparatory course is to provide you with a foundation necessary for our BSc programs. 

In the Bachelor program in Business & Economics, the first year of studies includes two academic modules in Mathematics. The first module is Mathematics A, and it covers an obligatory learning outcome for the course BE601 Data Analytics I, a course that runs (through the first teaching period) in the first semester. The second module is Mathematics B, and it covers an obligatory learning outcome for the course BE602 Data Analytics II, a course that runs in the second semester.

In the Bachelor program in Retail Management, you will have a Mathematics module during one of your first courses at SSE.

It is also a good idea to generally refresh your knowledge in Mathematics prior to commencing your studies. You can find some exercises here

There will be a compulsory diagnostic test on general knowledge in basic High School Mathematics which will take place on August 25, 2022.

Introduction week

August 22 - 26, 2022: Introduction week (compulsory)

To ensure that you settle in quickly, we’re running a compulsory introduction program, August 22 - 26, 2022 - the week prior to the program start.

During that week, you will be introduced to the academic aspects of your studies and meet your fellow students as well as the professors and staff. A number of lectures and seminars will be organized in order to introduce you to SSE and to the program. Please note that the introduction is mandatory for all students and includes your registration to the program.

The student association at SSE (SASSE) is also organizing many fun social activities the whole week - make sure that you don't miss out on all the fun!

Please note that the schedule is subject to change.
