For those wanting a career in business, finance, marketing, leadership and management, the new Economics Programme was established in the autumn 2011. It provides a modern and good theoretical basis for further business studies in Swedish or internationally. At SSHL, you can study the Economics Programme in both Swedish and English.
Subjects in economics also open doors when it comes to business accounting or marketing. You learn how to use IT in marketing and accounting, as well as getting good knowledge in professional business language, both speaking and writing in Swedish and English.
Many young people are attracted to the idea of starting and running their own business and more entrepreneurs with good ideas and a strong drive are just what society needs. Entrepreneurship is the key theme in the Economics Programme during your high school years. During the third academic year, your theoretical knowledge is put to the test. Then, together with some schoolmates, you will launch, manage and develop your own enterprise in accordance with the Young Entrepreneurs concept. You will think of a business idea, conduct market analyses and write a business plan for your YE company. You’ll also get venture capital, manage purchases, sales, marketing and everything else that belongs to a real business. In the annual report, you’ll present the accounts of your business.
A Springboard into the World
Studies in the Economics Programme qualify you for university studies in both Sweden and abroad.
