The educational programmes at Stockholm School of Economics are based on research and stress a theoretical and analytical approach. GO LSE students are able to take courses in Management, Finance, Economics, Accounting and Financial Management, and Marketing. Alongside the main offering, there are also opportunities to take courses in Entrepreneurship and Languages.
The teaching methodology is a mixture of American and European teaching methods and theories. Some courses are characterized by more traditional teaching, with lectures, written course assignments and seminars.
In other courses the teaching is to a great extent based on cases; active participation in class is expected and contributes to the final grade. Many of the courses require substantial preparatory reading.
As GO LSE students at SSE will be part of the CIVICA Engage track, they will be expected to take an Engage course as part of their programme.
The SSE exchange is additional to the requirements of your LSE degree. Having completed the year at SSE, you will then return to LSE to study the final year of your programme. Your year overseas will not count towards your final degree classification at LSE, but you will be issued with a separate SSE transcript providing details of your results.
