SSE still the leading business school in the Nordics

Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) advances in the 2020 Financial Times ranking of European business schools and remains the leading business school in the Nordics. SSE has topped the rankings for the last 17 years.

Stockholm School of Economics advances from number 26 in 2019 to 21 in 2020.

EMBA and MiM alumni reported higher salaries and salary increases this year. This elevated SSE to joint 60th in the EMBA table and seventh in the MiM ranking. About 30 per cent of recently surveyed alumni work in consultancy, a sector that tends to offer high wages, which could explain higher incomes. One graduate described the EMBA as a confidence booster: “It’s an experience I would recommend to anyone looking to gain a broad, international network.”

”Not only are we still the top business school in the Nordics, but we keep climbing in the rankings. This is a stamp of approval for our hard work and commitment to continuously provide a world-class education and improve our educational offer,” says Lars Strannegård, President of SSE. “I hope more students see the advantages of studying in the Nordics, with our dynamic entrepreneurial environment and focus on sustainability.”

This is the 17th annual Financial Times ranking of European business schools. It shows a composite ranking based on the combined performance of Europe’s leading schools across the five main rankings of programmes published by the FT in 2020: MBA, Executive MBA, Masters in Management (MiM) and the two rankings of non-degree executive education programs. SSE has been the leading top Nordic business school for all of the 17 years that the ranking has been published.
