To prepare confident leaders with fresh perspectives and new ideas open to changes and future challenges, SSE EMBA 2020 is built on the premise of FREE concept:

F – facts and science based mindset:

The habit for critical thinking helps graduates cut through the growing complexity of the world and information overload, tell real news from fake news and make decisions based on real and not alternative facts. The new EMBA program will have even more classroom discussions, challenging participants to critically assess each other’s arguments as they study business cases from around the world.

R – reflective& self-aware:

Practicing reflection and growing greater self-awareness encourages constant development of one’s leadership style. The new edition to the program will include elements of coaching to help participants better understand what motivates them, their team-player behavior, and any major blind spots they may still have.

E – empathetic& culturally literate :

These are important underlying themes of the program helping students develop the capabilities that will set humans apart from machines as AI and robots are becoming a more integral part of labor force. One step in that direction is a joint module on Cross-Cultural Management, where EMBA participants from across the Stockholm School of Economics family of program in Stockholm, Riga and St.Petersburg learn together with each other and about each other.

E – entrepreneurial& responsible:

Entrepreneurship and creativity are combined with leaders’ community obligations. From classroom modules, where participants develop fresh ideas through design thinking, to field projects, where they need to identify opportunities and create real change in their organizations.
