Stockholm School of EconomicsThe Stockholm School of Economics or Handelshögskolan is a business school in Stockholm, Sweden. It was founded in 1909 to improve business education in Sweden. Controlled by a private trust, it also receives government support.
The school operates a master of science program in business and economics as well as MBA and Ph.D. programs. Approximately half its academic research is in business administration and the other half in economics, statistics and finance.
The most well known scholars of the institution are arguably the economists Eli Heckscher and Bertil Ohlin, who developed the so called Heckscher-Ohlin theory of international trade. Ohlin later received the Bank of Sweden Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel. Heckscher is also known as the founder of economic history as an academic discipline in Sweden.
