Flexible funding for strategic initiatives.
During the last year, many alumni and friends made contributions ranging from 50 kronor to 1 million kronor to the SSE Annual Fund. This fund supports students, teaching, research, and overarching strategic initiatives. Flexible funding of this kind helps address the School's most pressing needs whenever and wherever they arise.
"Studying at SSE was an invaluable part of growing up for me. The exceptional teaching we take for granted. The exchange semesters and the summer jobs too. In my case, they led me to London where I am still living and working. Most importantly, the groups of friends I met at SSE are still a constant in my life - the smartest, most caring, fun and inspirational people I know. So, when I considered supporting SSE, it was an easy decision for me to make."

Among the initiatives supported by the Annual Fund in 2018, Career Management Support featured prominently. Thanks to the Annual Fund, more students receive support with their professional and personal development. They have access to an expanded offering of individual coaching sessions and digital tools that are available on demand.
Through career coaching, students can consider different career paths, learn more about themselves, and match their long-term goals with their interests and aptitude. Career Management Support also provides students with feedback on their application materials and training for making a case that they fit into particular positions in particular organizations.
