If the fb groups are really only going to be opened in June I'd like to motivate Laura again to open a preliminary group for us. ;)

Agree! Saw that a few of you are coming to Sthlm for the meeting on May 6. Would be cool to plan something more informal after the event :D

I probably won't be able to attend the event in Sthlm :(
Anyway, I also support the idea to open up a preliminary fb group in order to have a first opportunity to contact each other and then we can all switch to the 'official' group(s)!

I have now opened a group on Facebook, anyone who wants to join - feel free to do so :)

As you said, we can just switch to the official group once it's up

Those of you who was rejected, where are you going instead? Or are you planning to re-apply next year instead?

You got accepted for a program that doesn't exist?
Or do you mean the MFin cash cow that costs 75,000 USD to attend?
Also, what sort of profile do you have that you got rejected from SSE but accepted into MIT? SSE's not that much of a crapshoot.

MFin, sorry didn't mean to be rude.. Just wanted to show how arbitrary these admissions can be:

Profile:
Undergrad at Duke University in econ 3.9/4.0
GRE: 167 Q, 165 V
1 year experience at a BB in S&T
And a few volunt. work.

Main objective of applying to SSE was to break through in Europe- change of scenery. But I think MIT will open some doors too- or i hope soo..

No offense taken. Seems pretty crazy that SSE rejected you, that's a really strong profile. Did you meet the 15 ECTS in Finance requirement for the program? That might've been the reason for the ding, schools can be pretty uptight about that sort of stuff. Otherwise, I can't really see how they said no. SSE finance's GRE average is 163 and the GMAT is 695 - not exactly so high that they can pick and choose whoever they want.

Anyways, good luck with MIT's finance. I'm doing my applications next year, and it's unfortunately a bit too pricey for me, especially when there are schools like Norwegian School of Economics that have solid placements within Norway and charge zero tuition. That being said, MIT definitely seems to have good placements, so it should open doors. You might even have a chance to snag a job in HK/Singapore/London with MIT's name if you're still interested in that change of scenario. How come you're headed to a Masters in Finance when you're already in industry, though?

Hey, I'm a management consultant in Asian country who works for global consultancy..
I'm planning to apply for the master program of SSE and also SBS(Stockholm Business School)
and I'm worring becuase my GMAT score is not that good (640/Quant:50, and I'm not considering MBA programs in Stockholm)
I heard that SSE evaluates students with multifle factors (such as CV, motivation, GPA), but SBS only accepts GMAT score except for TOEFL.
Anybody knows that SBS's GMAT average minimum score level or its specific selection process?
Would it be ok to submit other stuffs that SSE requires or should I submit GMAT report only?

Hey guys,

I am attending the assessment center for the International Business/CEMS program at SSE next week. Has anyone of you interviewed for this program or any other at SSE and can give men an indication about what to prepare for, I am not sure what to expect.
