The Science PO-SSE Degree is offered by Stockholm School of Economics.


The aim of the Sciences PO – SSE programme at Stockholm School of Economics is to offer a top-class double degree for graduate students seeking careers in diplomacy, international organizations, social engagement, as well as international business and financial settings where a solid understanding of political dynamics are a crucial success factor.

The two-year framework is welcoming qualified applicants from around the world. Several curricular combinations are possible, and prospective students must meet admission criteria for the chosen master programs at both schools. The first year is spent at Sciences Po in Paris studying on of the available programs at PSIA (Paris School of International Affairs). The second year is spent at SSE in Stockholm studying a MSc in Business & Management, Economics or Finance.

The double degree arrangement will lead to two separate master degrees, one from each institution.
