1. Why did you choose SSE and your specific program?
I am doing a dual degree with Sciences Po and am enrolled in the Master’s program in International Development at Sciences Po and MSc program in Economics at SSE. I chose the dual degree program as I wanted to deepen my knowledge in two fields and increase my career prospects to many areas of international organizations, diplomacy, and other areas of social engagement.
2. Why would you encourage others to apply to SSE?
SSE is a beautiful school, a small community. By the virtue of being small, you know a lot of people, you make a lot of friends, and you expand your network. The professors are experts in their fields. The courses are challenging, and you have a lot of scope to grow and learn. SSE is situated in Stockholm, a city that I have come to love so much because of its greenery, and warm friendly people.
3. What tips do you have for prospective students?
Be honest about why you want to do a particular program. I think the most important thing is to do a thorough research of the schools before applying, i.e., to know about the courses they are offering and to see if you find them interesting and a perfect fit for you.
