Our Stories

Anders Paalzow, SSE Riga Rector:

“At this moment SSE Riga graduates can be found in almost all sectors of the economy and in more than 60 countries around the world. Even though their careers are indeed all very different, they all have in common that at one point in time they entered the doors of SSE Riga to take up the SSE Riga challenge. I do hope that you will be among the next generation of students taking up this challenge. Looking forward to welcoming you to SSE Riga in August!“

SSE Riga offers two accredited study programmes: a three-year bachelor’s programme in economics and business and a two- year professional master’s programme in business administration (Executive MBA).

Given the student body of 450 students and the comparatively small size of the School, staff and lecturers are able to work closely with students.

Studies in an international environment with students from more than a dozen countries and faculty members from Europe, the United States and Australia offer a global learning experience that is enriched by the student mobility programme, providing 40 students annually with an exchange semester at one of our partner universities in Europe, Hong Kong, Korea, and the United States.

Many students make lifelong friends and important connections while at the School. The School also offers a wide range of extra- curricular activities, including sports activities, a debate society, and other clubs.

SSE Riga is located in the beautiful Art Nouveau District of Riga, a ten-minute walk from historic Old Riga. The SSE Riga building is an architectural monument of national significance in the ART NOUVEAU style.
