See the program structure in full detail below.

Before the start of the program

In the weeks before the actual start of the program, we offer a unique 24-hour crash course in happiness and wellbeing at SSE's conference centre outside of Stockholm. The course is led by Micael Dahlen, Professor of Wellness, Welfare and Happiness at SSE. By integrating wellbeing into your academic and professional development, we hope that you as a student will help create a more sustainable and healthier world, both for yourself, your future colleagues and society. Because this is what economics is fundamentally about – welfare, wellbeing, and happiness. 

Before you enroll, we also offer a preparatory Mathematics course as well as "Welcome to Swedish", a popular introductory course for international students who wish to familiarize themselves with the Swedish language and culture (even though all programs at SSE are taught in English).
