Study Abroad in English

Top 10 Reasons to Apply:
as suggested by former students

1.

The Swedish Program is small, but we are affiliated with the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) -- an internationally acclaimed university. It is the best of both worlds. We get attention from a great staff, but also get to benefit from all the opportunities of being part of a larger university. SSE students are in some of our courses and we can participate in the university's wide array of clubs and activities. We are not dropped off at some large university with no support, nor are we isolated in a building with just other Americans.

Besides it being a great program, The Swedish Program's affiliation with such a prestigious university -- the Stockholm School of Economics -- has strengthened my resume. It has already helped me land a great summer internship and it will eventually help me get a good job.
