Swedish School of Economics and Business Administration, Helsinki (SHH)

Svenska Handelshögskolan, Helsinki, Arkadiagatan 22 - P.O. Box 479, 00101 Helsinki, Finland
3.85 / 5 based on 138 reviews.
Description:
Swedish is one of the two official languages of Finland since Finland was part of Sweden for more than six centuries until 1809. As early as 1909 the Swedish-speaking business community founded their own college of business. In the 1920's it became an institution of university standing, the present Swedish School of Economics and Business Administration.

The Swedish School of Economics and Business Administration is situated in Helsinki. In order to meet the need for university-level education in Swedish in the fields of economics and business administration in Swedish-speaking Ostrobothnia on the west-coast of Finland, a branch campus was set up in 1980 in the city of Vaasa.
