Corporate Relations

The mission of the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) is to, through scientific teaching and research, strengthen Sweden’s competitiveness. Therefore, we build strong relationships with companies in order to understand their needs and challenges to better educate future responsible leaders in business and beyond.

SSE is an independent, private institution that mainly relies on private funding. Only 18% of SSE’s revenue distribution comes from the Swedish government. The support we receive from the companies is therefore crucial for our school and its future development.

Join over 100 Swedish and international companies who are part of the SSE Corporate Partnership Program and support the development of the school’s research.
