Press release

St. Petersburg, June 15, 2011. Community of Stockholm School of Economics Russia alumni celebrates the birthday. This year, the remarkable date was celebrated in the new office of the school in business center Sweden House. Thus, there were two reasons for the holiday at once: birthday of SSE Russia Alumni and a house-warming party.

Dean of SSE Russia Anders Liljenberg points out, "SSE Russia Alumni community is not only a possibility to maintain communication with a huge quantity of interesting and successful people but also a powerful instrument for search for new career opportunities and that is why the school actively encourages its alumni for further communication after graduation from the program." 


Last year, the birthday of SSE Russia Alumni was marked in Moscow. Change of the city served as a pretext for inception of a new tradition: the right to organize Alumni Birthday will be handed over to each other by two Russian capital cities, Moscow and St. Petersburg, in turn.

About 100 alumni arrived to the celebration. Many of them arrived from Moscow and other cities. Honorable signs were given to graduates of Executive MBA General Management group of 2001 and Executive MBA General Management of 2006. 

General Director of business center Sweden House Jan Borekul points out that choice of the place for celebration and the future office of the school is not incidental. Borekul said, "This is the part of St. Petersburg that is historically connected with Sweden. Lutheran church of St. Ann, chancellery of the consulate, residence of the Consul General of Sweden, as well as offices of some Swedish and North European organizations and enterprises are located there and thus this is very symbolical." 

Participants of Executive MBA programs will start the new semester in new classrooms. Lecturers and employees of the school are convinced that this will help them to feel the spirit of Swedish education better.
