Dual Degree - Stockholm School of Economics

A high standard collaboration

Sciences Po and SSE (Stockholm School of Economics), both APSIA -Association of Professional School of International Affairs- members, have come together to offer graduate students a cross-disciplinary dual degree, leading to a Master's degree from Paris School of International Affairs of Sciences Po and either the MSc in Economics, the MSc in Finance or the MSc in Business & Management from SSE, thus uniting their efforts in an area they both excel in.

This specific 2-year framework is based on mutual recognition of existing curricula at each school. It offers a top-level education in the area of international affairs and economics to participating students, giving them the opportunity to develop a top-level career in diplomacy, international organizations or other areas of social engagement. 

Students enrol at both institutions and can thus benefit from a wider Alumni network.
