The Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) is a private university with very little dependence on government support (about 10 percent of total revenue per annum) that trains young and mid-career women and men for leading positions in both the private and public sectors. About 1,900 students are registered in programs at various levels (the Executive Education Programs excluded). SSE research programs rank among the best in the world in areas such as Health Economics, Finance, Business Law and Economics, to name but a few.
SSE was founded in 1909 on the initiative of Swedish business leaders, and the School has maintained close ties with the business community ever since. Many firms are eagerly waiting for the opportunity to participate in SSE's partnership programs, and SSE has no difficulty in recruiting business leaders for its Board of Directors.
SSE has earned a reputation for excellence, both here in Sweden and around the world. The School collaborates with several leading institutions of higher education around the world. In 1999, SSE became the first Swedish university to be fully accredited by EQUIS (The European Quality Improvement System). This means that SSE teaching and research in all fields have been found to meet the most rigorous international criteria.
