About the Student Association
What is SASSE?
The Student Association at the Stockholm School of Economics (SASSE) is a non-political, non-religious organization that has about 2000 members. SASSE was founded in 1909 when the Stockholm School of Economics was situated at Brunkebergstorg. Over a century later the Student Association is located at Sveavägen in the heart of Stockholm and has evolved into a vast and dynamic organization where 90% of the students are active to some extent during their time at SSE.
SASSE is a rather unique organization. SASSE exists thanks to the strong drive and commitment among the SSE students and the wish to have fun and develop as a community. The purpose of SASSE is fundamentally to care for the joint interests of the students, which roughly can be summarized in educational coverage, extra-curricular activities and career services.
Who is SASSE?
Basically all students at SSE are members, or at least that is our goal. SASSE is led by a board that manages the daily activities at SASSE and it consists of a President, a Vice president, a Treasurer and 8 committee presidents. On top of that around 90% of all SSE students engage themselves in a SASSE project sometime during their studies. SASSE offers projects stretching from a baking society and a debate society to arranging career fairs and lectures on interesting topics.
What can SASSE do for me as a SSE student?
As a member of SASSE you will be able to participate in the numerous projects, lectures and social events arranged by the members. In addition, you will receive a Mecenat Card which verifies you as a student and offers great discounts all over Sweden. As a member you can also sign up to get the Dagens Nyheter digital edition at a heavily discount price. Why not come by one of our pubs and enjoy a beer in the SASSE atmosphere?
What can I do for SASSE?
Whether you just want a place to heat your food or if you want a platform to improve your education or to be able to attend all of the parties, we hope that you want to be part of the family that is SSE and SASSE. Mutual benefit always seems to be the best way to create something great. If you want to get involved there are lots of things to do. Your knowledge and life experience is always a welcome addition to the Student Association. Just contact anyone on the Board and they can hopefully help you further on your way.
