DESCRIPTION AND METHODOLOGIES

The RAMP program was the initiative of the Stockholm School of Economics with the aim to increase diversity in Swedish industry and help put newcomers on a fast track into the Swedish job market.
Please note that the RAMP program is currently under reconstruction and will not be held during the 2019-2020 academic year after three years, we are rethinking the format, the content, and the duration to take RAMP in a new direction.

Activities
In parallel with the RAMP program participants worked at a Swedish-based organization during one year. The participants where matched to the needs and profiles of one of the internship companies. (fashion, service providers, hi-tech logistics, financial markets)

RESULTS AND IMPACT

The result of the project is amazing: during the three years of the program, over 36 participants have completed the one year-long educational and internship program. 89% of the program's participants are employed today.
