The Stockholm School of Economics in Riga (SSE Riga) is a business school in Riga, Latvia, founded in 1994 and over the years has acquired a reputation as the leading business school in the region. You don’t have to go far from home to study in one of the best Business Schools in Europe.

“By providing an education that is competitive at the European level, SSE Riga gives talented Baltic students an opportunity staying “at home” rather than going abroad for studies. Otherwise, the most talented might leave the region and once they have done that, it will be difficult to lure them back,” says Anders Paalzow, SSE Riga Rector.

SSE Riga is a comparatively small school with a dynamic international learning environment where the majority of the courses are based on the case study method. It offers two accredited study programmes: a three-year Bachelor’s programme in Economics and Business, and an Executive MBA – a two-year professional Master’s programme:

  • 130 students every year are admitted to the Bachelor’s programme
  • 20-30 students every year enrol in the Master’s programme

Why Study in Latvia? 

  • Tuition fees and living costs are generally lower than the costs in most “Western Countries”.
  • Universities are well known for producing high quality IT and engineering graduates.
  • EU membership means that a degree from Latvia is equivalent to other EU countries, making it easier to get credentials recognized.
  • You will have all the benefits of living in a European country with lower costs than many westernized EU nations.
  • The capital of Latvia, Rīga, is an attractive, lively, cosmopolitan city, but less expensive than many other Western European capitals.
