Customized programs provide business and leadership development for your employees that are tailored for the organizations specific strategic challenges. This ensures that capability building is embedded in your organization’s context and addresses your specific challenges – a solid foundation for impact.

We work closely together with our clients from the initial needs assessment and diagnostic phase, through the design phase and delivery, to following up and tracking business impact.


The programs vary in structure and content depending on the target group’s challenges and development needs, the business context and desired impact. Generally, there are four categories of customized programs:

  • Focused programs with the aim of strengthening skills and competence within a specific field such as finance, marketing or sustainability
  • Change programs for one or several managerial levels in connection with larger organizational or business-change processes
  • Broader leadership programs for specific managerial levels as part of meeting general leadership-development needs
  • General management programs focusing on a combination of e.g. strategy, business and leadership

As a client to us, you get a customized program adapted to your company’s real challenges and opportunities. Our programs combine know-how from leading edge research at Stockholm School of Economics and our external network of academia and experience-based knowledge.


SSE Executive Education assists companies and organizations to significantly increase their impact and improve their ability to reach business objectives. Therefore, we always start from the actual business challenges and dilemmas faced by our clients. This is a means to secure impact and lasting solutions.

The pedagogical approach is carefully designed to be appropriate to meet the objectives of the customized program in the shorter and longer term. The programs are tailored in full cooperation with our client’s senior management to meet specific needs and address the specific strategic challenges. We focus on experiential learning which includes Live Learning and Peer to peer learning.

As part of the customization process, we define clear objectives prior to the program: Desired effects during the programme and long term effects. The result is tracked during the program and measured after the program to ensure real business impact.
