Center for Educational Leadership and Excellence
Our mission is to facilitate the accumulation of knowledge and expertise regarding leadership and organization in education and spread this through academic publications, popular science work, and open seminars and workshops. Research topics include leadership and organization of schools, staffing and career management in schooling, working conditions for students and educators, and how to enhance students’ educational achievements. We work with researchers in educational sciences, psychology, economics, management and sociology in Sweden as well as internationally.
Our research goals are aligned with the Stockholm School of Economics’ basic mission to strengthen Swedish competitiveness through research and science-based education.
The Center is founded by various research grants for ongoing projects from e.g. the Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare (FORTE), the Institute for Evaluation of Labour Market and Education Policy (IFAU), the Swedish Competition Authority, Vinnova, Riksbankens Jubileumsfond, Magnus Bergvalls Foundation, and from an institutional grant from the Hans and Barbara Bergström Foundation.
