Stockholm School of Economics
SSE is one of Europe's leading business schools, with a unique business-community network. Their research is internationally recognized and many of our researchers are among the leading figures in their respective fields.
The Stockholm School of Economics opened its doors to its first students 110 years ago, in 1909. The Stockholm School of Economics started its journey at Brunkebergstorg in central Stockholm, situated in a commercial building known as Brunkebergs hotel. Leasing the entire third floor of the hotel, teaching continued at the premises for nearly two decades. In time however, SSE outgrew these premises and commissioned Swedish architect Ivar Tengbom with designing the new facilities. In 1926, the School inaugurated these new quarters located at Sveavägen 65, the address of our main building to this day. Generous donations over the years have given SSE the opportunity to expand on Tengbom’s design, and the original construction is flanked by newer buildings and several additional premises are located nearby.
These last few years have been equally lively, with some particularly exciting changes to the BSc Program in Retail Management. As of 2015, the program left their old campus in Norrtälje to join the main SSE Campus in Stockholm, finally unifying all the programs under one roof. Just three years later, the BSc Program in Retail Management took another exciting step, becoming the first program to be taught fully in English. Finally, SSE’s most recent achievement is the launch of a new research house, the House of Innovation. This inter-disciplinary research and education environment focuses on innovation, entrepreneurship and digitalization, and will strive to push the boundaries of modern research. See more
