The Stockholm School of Economics priority is to develop international cooperation

Every respected business school considers it a necessity to enter the international scientific and educational environment. They achieve it by participating in various communities and associations that occupy their own special niches. Each community is a platform for discussion, daily cooperation and constant experience exchange not only within one country, but also across the borders. This is why the Stockholm School of Economics partners with many universities, non-profit organizations and business associations around the world.

SSE is a member of the Community of European Management Schools and International Companies (CEMS) and an active member of The Global Alliance in Management Education. The goal of CEMS is to create an educational model of the new multicultural world.

Recently the School became the first in Scandinavia to join the Global Network for Advanced Management. GNAM was launched in 2012 and nowadays includes 32 leading business schools from countries at the different stages of their development. GNAM helps expand the network of students, teachers, staff and graduates of its member schools so that everyone can take advantage of the competitive benefits of the partner schools.

“We are proud and honored to join one of the world’s most prestigious business school networks,” said Lars Strannegård, president of SSE. “In times like the present, it is especially important to collaborate and share knowledge and experiences. We look forward to cooperating with the distinguished members and to contributing to the diversity of the network by bringing in a Nordic perspective. Internationalization is at the core of SSE’s strategy, and through the membership in the Global Network, we will have the opportunity to further deepen the international context for our students, faculty and staff, to the benefit of society.”

Soon the Stockholm School of Economics plans to join The International Association for Management Development in Dynamic Societies. CEEMAN is a global network of management development institutions interested in quality of education and innovations in this field, with 200 members from 50 countries in Europe, North America, Latin America, Africa, and Asia.

"In the age of globalization, we need to take active steps to build and deepen networks around the world. We need to share information and our knowledge. Among the results of joining international networks and business communities, we should emphasize interdisciplinary courses, management skills, intercultural relationships and social responsibility - these are the qualities that companies and modern leaders need," Anders Paalzow, the President of the Stockholm School of Economics in Russia, says.

SSE in Russia is also an active member and partner of associations and business communities such as The Association of European Businesses (AEB), St. Petersburg International Business Association (SPIBA), American Chamber of Commerce in Russia (AmCham), The Swedish Chamber of Commerce for Russia & CIS, Finnish-Russian Chamber of Commerce (FRCC), Russian Association of Business Education (RABE).
