I have always been fascinated about leadership and management that address current challenges both at a societal and organisational level. Being so close to such an innovative business community and the Scandinavian way of doing business made this programme the perfect match.

Today I work as Global Operations Graduate Associate at Astra Zeneca in Stockholm, Sweden.


I studied the Master’s Programme in Management Studies at the Stockholm Business School.

Living cost in Stockholm, Sweden

Question: Hello Pablo! I would like to know the cost of living in Sweden.

Answer: In terms of living costs it can depend on your lifestyle. I had a budget during my studies of 10000 SEK (more or less 1000 euros). Many of my friends have a budget of 7500-8000 SEK. Something that I had no idea before I moved to Stockholm is that it is quite common to work part time during your studies in Sweden. On the one hand, most of the master’s programmes allow you to work part time since there is a significant focus on individual learning and working on projects as opposed to countries like Spain or France where you would have lectures all day. This allows you to plan your week in order to be able to cope with both work and studies. Personally, I worked almost through the entire master’s programme and I still managed to get the grades I wanted and cope with my social life :-)

I hope you find this information useful and you decide to apply to Stockholm University. For me it was a life-changing decision and I enjoyed each of the seconds I spent at Stockholm University. Best regards, Pablo.
