Why did you choose SSE and your specific program?
I chose SSE because it's located in one of the most amazing cities in Europe but its reputation is known around the world. It glows Nordic prestige, but is extremely international at heart. SSE is small in size but vast in its impact, actions and opportunities. It appreciates honest values and traditions, but goes along with a twinkle in its eye. The playfulness in serious work with the focus on postmodernism and innovations can be seen in the fresh Business & Management MSc-program that I am happy to study in. To me, SSE represented something bigger, better and a little bit cooler, and I haven't changed my opinion one bit.
What is your favorite part about being at SSE?
The people, the place and the "work hard, play hard" -mentality. This school challenges you but in an inspiring way. It wants to see you succeed. You get to experience so many amazing things in and outside of class that time here flies by way too fast! But that's what happens when you're having fun and enjoying life, which, at the end of the day, is the most important thing.
Why would you encourage others to apply to SSE?
It is a one of a kind experience to be a SSE student and to live in Stockholm or Scandinavia in general. SSE isn't just a school, it's a community, which makes the education experience so much richer. One wise man once said he was motivated by the fear of being average: in SSE, that's something you'll never be.
