Advisory Board

The Advisory Board consists of prominent members of the Swedish business community and advises the School on the strategy of the Corporate Partnership Program.

Chairperson of the Board

Marie Ehrling

"It is important that the Swedish business community supports SSE. SSE is a school of high international standards and it is essential that we ensure that it continues to be. Therefore, I hope that more companies choose to engage with the school, both traditional and new corporations. SSE needs all the support it can get. The school is of great importance for innovation and growth, as well as the image of Sweden internationally. I think SSE shows great ability to adapt and innovate in the rapid changing business environment that we live in today."
