Hi all,

Please share your profiles below while we're waiting for the results from SSE.

I'm from South East Asia but did my Bachelor's degree at Aalto University, Finland. Prior to Aalto, I'd studied for some time at a Vietnamese university, and then won a full-ride exchange scholarship from Seoul National University, South Korea. After coming back from Seoul, I decided to quit my studies in Vietnam and start over at Aalto.

High school valedictorian
GPA at Aalto: 4.92 /5.0 (Top 3 in the cohort)
IELTS 8.0
GMAT: 740 (Q50, V41)
Exchange at Bocconi, Italy. GPA: 28.6/30
3 internships: Ogilvy and Deloitte in my country, and an NPO in Helsinki
Won a sponsorship to attend an international conference in Australia
Interested in intercultural experience and business (shown in my thesis and other activities)
Exposed to both SEA and Nordic cultures

I applied for the MBM and the K-A Bonnier Fellowship double degree with NUS. This is my first target.

How about your profiles?

Wasn't admitted to MBM program.

Got a 620 on Gmat right before the deadline so I was really on the edge anyways. Lowest intake last year was 610 but I can imagine the competition was harder this year given how SSE has risen on the FT lists.

Also my CV and GPA weren't the best but I've heard of people getting in with less so it was quite a gamble for me.

Best of luck to all of you who got in! Stockholm is a great city and SSE is considered cream of the crop out of all higher education in Sweden.

Hi, all! I have also been admitted to MSc in Finance program this year. However, I am a non-EU student, so have to pay tuition fees, which I cannot afford. Could, please, anyone share with me any opportunity to get funding/loans? I have done my research and have not found anything yet. This situation is very disappointing since I have already turned down Bocconi MS in Finance program for the same reason :(
Please, write me in private messages if you can share anything with me

I got a 100% tuition fee waiver from Bocconi MIM CEMS, but I rejected it as well. Bocconi might have more funding now as some people turned it down. I'd suggest you email Bocconi and SSE asking for their advice.
