7 1 GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR STUDIES AT SSE The aim of the Stockholm School of Economics is to promote the advancement of business in Sweden through academic education and research (SSE Charter section 1, ). More than 100 years have passed since the first students began their studies at SSE, and this aim has remained intact and continues to guide the School's activities and priorities. However, the internationalization of Swedish economic life, globalization in general and the internationalization of higher education have led SSE to extend its outlook, reach and its activities well beyond the borders of Sweden. At present SSE offers the following degree programs: Three-year Bachelor of Science Program in Business & Economics (Stockholm) Three-year Bachelor of Science Program in Retail Management (Norrtälje) Two-year Master of Science Program in International Business (Stockholm) Two-year Master of Science Program in Business & Management (Stockholm) Two-year Master of Science Program in Finance (Stockholm) Two-year Master of Science Program in Accounting & Financial Management (Stockholm) Two-year Master of Science Program in Economics (Stockholm) Two-year Master of Science Program in General Management (Stockholm) Four-year PhD Program in Business Administration (Stockholm) Four-year PhD Program in Economics (Stockholm) Four-year PhD Program in Finance (Stockholm) SSE MBA Executive Format (Stockholm) Executive MBA Program (Riga) Executive MBA program (Russia) SSE also offers three double-degree programs at the master's level: CEMS Master in International Management (CEMS MIM) together with CEMS, the Global Alliance in Management Education. 1 Double-degree program in Finance together with Università Commerciale Luigi Bocconi, Italy. Double-degree program in Economics with the University of St. Gallen (HSG), Switzerland. SSE works in close collaboration with the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga (SSE Riga), where a BSc program in Economics & Business and executive education programs are offered. The Bachelor of Science programs are intended mainly for those who are recent secondary school graduates with outstanding grades and with limited or no work experience. The Master of Science programs provide an advanced-level education and are intended for students who already hold a bachelor degree. The Doctoral programs are intended for students with a university degree 1 CEMS is a global alliance of leading business schools and multinational companies, see also 7

8 in one of the economic disciplines, meanwhile executive education programs are offered for the students with the relevant professional experience. 1.1 STUDENT RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES The programs of the Stockholm School of Economics are characterized by an open atmosphere with an emphasis on student attendance and active participation. Students are represented in all decision-making and some advisory bodies. Through your student representatives, you can convey your views on matters, such as program design. You can also convey your views directly to the teachers or the program directors. You are obliged to evaluate each course you attend using a web-based evaluation tool. You have rights, but you also have responsibilities as a student. SSE expects that you follow SSE's code of conduct embodied in a number of policies and governing ordinances. This means that you show respect for other students, faculty, staff and SSE guests and that you act towards others in such a way as to uphold and promote the reputation of the Stockholm School of Economics. SSE's policy states that everyone should be treated equally regardless of religion, ethnicity, sexual preference, social background, disability etc. 2 The Faculty and Program Board at SSE handles the matters of discrimination, harassment or grave misconduct. You must be aware of the regulations that apply to studies and examinations as well as the guidelines for being on SSE's premises. For more information about the academic regulations see Chapter 3. When you are admitted to the Stockholm School of Economics, you sign a pledge by which you acknowledge and accept these regulations and SSE's rights to modify them and make decisions based on them (Appendix 3). 1.2 TEACHING AND LEARNING The academic year is divided into four teaching periods, period 1 and 2 in the fall and period 3 and 4 in the spring. Each period ends with an exam period. The fall semester takes place between August and January and the spring semester between January and June. Teaching takes the form of lectures, seminars, projects and other assignments. Group instruction, projects, and written assignments are common and may be assigned to individuals or groups. While you can book a place in one of the SSE's computer rooms, it is good to have access to your own computer. There is a wireless network at SSE so you can work anywhere. A cornerstone of the pedagogical approach for all MSc programs is attendance and interaction. The learning process is based on close interaction among students and between students and faculty, both of which require substantial presence on the SSE premises. Studies at SSE proceed on a full-time basis and require that you set aside the time needed. It is not recommended to work or pursue other studies at the same time, so these are not acceptable grounds for missing compulsory parts of a program, nor are other voluntary activities, including those within the Student Association (SASSE). In a course that carries 7.5 ECTS credits 3 (1.5 2 Equality at SSE, see more here: 3 European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System credits; hereinafter referred to as ECTS credits or credits. 8

9 ECTS credits are equal to one week of full-time studies) there may be 2-3 in-class teaching sessions a week. A teaching session usually consists of two lectures or seminars (45 minutes each). Generally, students study two courses in parallel, which means that the scheduled instruction is 4-6 lectures or seminars per week (8-12 hours). In addition to this, time should be spent on preparation, group work and the student's individual studying of course material, which together with formal instruction in total is about 40 hours a week. Teachers and administrative staff are willing to provide help and support, but you are the one responsible for ensuring that your studies are successful. If you experience some problems following the study pace of the program or have difficulty developing good study routines, you may contact a study counselor. Academic requirements are described in Chapter 3 and in Appendix SSE PORTAL Through SSE Portal (https://portal.hhs.se/) you can conduct functions such as viewing important course and program announcements, registering for courses, checking your schedule, accessing , and ordering transcripts or letters of enrolment. To access the SSE Portal, please use your SSE registration number as your username. The SSE Portal is the most important information channel at SSE and all important information is uploaded to the Portal. 1.4 REGISTRATION AND WITHDRAWAL Students have to register for all courses, seminar groups, and exams and give notification of withdrawal from any of these on the SSE Portal. Read more in Section Registering for a course is done on the My upcoming courses page on the SSE Portal or on the course's website during the registration period, which takes place in the term prior to the course being given usually in April/May for fall courses and November/December for spring courses. You will find the exact dates for each registration period under the Student Support. You will be automatically registered for some courses, but you have to register for other courses on your own. See the academic regulations in Section Read what regulations apply for registering for exams in Section ASSESSMENT Teachers may assess your performance in a course in various ways and by combining different forms of assessment such as written examinations, written assignments, projects, presentations and in some cases formal oral examinations. On the basis of these assessments you receive a grade for each course. Courses are graded on a scale where A, B, C, D, E represent passing grades (with A being the highest grade) and Fx and F represent failing grades. Please see Section for more information. 9

10 Assessment at SSE is based upon explicit Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs). These are formulated for each course and included in each course description. They describe in specific terms what you should know after completing a course. In order to earn a passing grade in a course, you must attain all learning outcomes for that course. In order to ensure fairness and academic integrity, all student performance on assessments is governed by the SSE Disciplinary Regulations. All instances of academic misconduct will be reported and investigated, and appropriate disciplinary measures will be taken. Read more in Section STUDENT EVALUATIONS AND SURVEYS Course Evaluations All SSE courses are evaluated. After you have participated in a course, you are obliged to complete an evaluation of the course where all participants express their opinions anonymously. This is an important tool for maintaining high quality and continuously improving the courses, as well as one factor among others that determines teacher salaries and employment conditions. It also means that students and the teacher in charge can make relevant comparisons between courses and follow developments over time. Course evaluations are posted on the relevant website, as well as compiled quarterly in the quality reports, regardless of the form (or combination of forms) the evaluation has taken. Other Evaluations As SSE continuously improves its programs and services, it is also necessary to conduct a range of other evaluations during and after programs. The aim of these evaluations is to align the programs and services with the SSE vision and with student needs. For these reasons, it is of a great importance that SSE receives student input in order to further develop its programs. Alumni Surveys As an alumna/alumnus you will also receive surveys from SSE, such as the Placement Report survey, surveys for program rankings and surveys for long-term program development. The Placement Report presents data on SSE's alumni's career paths and is a service to students and prospective students interested in the career potential provided by SSE programs. SSE also conducts surveys as a basis for school and program rankings, which are important for SSE's competitive positioning and for prospective students when they choose schools. Surveys intended for program development purposes may also be distributed, for example to examine the relative importance and usefulness of different program components in a long-term career perspective. Responding to our surveys is an important way to support SSE and ensure the quality of its future offerings and graduates. 10

11 1.7 SERVICES AVAILABLE TO STUDENTS Academic Support & Records and Program Office Student counseling, special needs and assistance in resolving student-health issues, formal grade transcripts, degree certificates, examinations, system support, scheduling, statistics, and central course administration are the main areas of responsibility of the Academic Support & Records department.

13 2 OVERVIEW OF THE SSE MSC PROGRAMS SSE provides a range of Master of Science programs. Described in this handbook are MSc in International Business (MIB), MSc in Business & Management (MBM), MSc in Economics (MECON), MSc in Finance (MFIN), and MSc in Accounting and Financial Management (MAFM). Introduction to the SSE MSc Programs An overall aim of the SSE MSc programs programs is to provide individuals who have earned a bachelor degree with advanced knowledge, skills and abilities within a specific subject area, as well as a solid foundation for assuming general management positions. The programs combine a strong theoretical base with a high level of practical application. Graduates will be highly qualified to assume advanced early-career positions in the private sector, non-governmental organizations and the public sector and to immediately contribute to value creation in these positions. The programs also provide an excellent basis for pursuing PhD studies at SSE or other institutions. The language of instruction is English. Each SSE MSc program consists of two years of full-time studies (120 ECTS credits 4 ). In the MIB, MBM, MECON, MFIN and MAFM programs, students deepen their knowledge in the main subject of their chosen program (60 ECTS credits); either specialize further or broaden their understanding through independent elective courses (30 ECTS credits) and write a Master thesis (30 ECTS credits). It is also possible to participate in the SSE Student Exchange Program, CEMS Program or the Executive Trainee Module (see Section 2.4.3). For some of the programs/specializations an international component is mandatory. Double degree offerings are also available. The Master thesis is a project with a scope of 30 ECTS credits (i.e. the equivalent of 20 weeks full-time work) where a student must show that he/she can independently identify and analyze a problem and then present and defend a thesis that adheres to the relevant academic conventions. The thesis should pose a theoretical, methodological and/or empirical challenge, illustrating the student's ability to think systematically and critically while also showing an ability to collect, interpret and discuss data and literature. The format will vary across programs but a common feature is academic rigor. Students interested in pursuing PhD studies at SSE may apply for admission to the PhD program during their first year of the MSc program and may combine the final year of their MSc studies with the first PhD year, so called MSc-PhD parallel enrollment (see Section 3.5). Since studies are full-time, you must ensure that any other commitments you might have will not interfere with your fulfilling your academic obligations, including (but not limited to) individual studies, exams, class sessions, group work and team-based projects. All programs begin with the introduction days. Those are intended not only to welcome new students, but also to provide newcomers with an overview of SSE as an institution of higher education and to help all students to understand what to expect from their studies, learn more 4 European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System credits; hereinafter referred to as ECTS credits or credits. 13

Students choose a specialization by complying with the course requirements set for that specialization. For detailed information see Appendix 4. The program combines a rigorous theoretical approach with extensive real-world applications in order to teach you how to solve complex problems in many areas of economics. The program provides a general analytical approach: a way of thinking rather than detailed knowledge about narrowly-defined issues. The objectives of the MSc in Economics are to give students a deep understanding of economics, and to equip them to address challenging economic problems. They will learn how to use economic theory and quantitative methods in solving complex problems on micro, macro and international levels. This will be accomplished through a structured learning environment where a solid theoretical understanding will be acquired during the first part of the program, and where a practically oriented problem-solving ability will be the focus of the second part of the program. Figure 3: Overview of the MECON Program Applied Economic Analysis Economics (MECON) Combined intake International Economics Specialization in Applied Economic Analysis The specialization puts an emphasis on acquiring theoretical and empirical problem-solving skills that can be applied in a wide variety of settings. The analysis of complex real-world problems increasingly requires the use of solid economic analysis combined with quantitative empirical methods. Thus, the overall objective of the specialization is for students to learn how to use economic theory and quantitative methods in solving complex problems in many areas of economics. Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs) To be able to use advanced economic theory and quantitative methods in solving complex economic problems. To be able to identify the suitable methods to address such problems. To have a critical understanding of current debates and issues in economics 20
