Sweden: Stockholm


For more than 25 years, The Swedish Program has been offering study abroad students various liberal arts courses in English. It is a small but highly regarded program accepting around 40 students per semester at the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE). The program originally started at Stockholm University but relocated to SSE in January 2013. The small size, curricular focus, commitment to cultural integration, and high academic standards are distinctive features of the Program that successfully promote this multifaceted study abroad experience. It is important for participants to take on the challenge of intercultural education by understanding the institutions and the people of another society and be able to get more insight about their own country and themselves.
