The Stockholm School of Economics in Riga (SSE Riga) is a business school in Riga, Latvia. The school was founded in 1994 by the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) with the support of the Swedish government, and the Latvian Ministry of Education on behalf of Latvia.
The mission of SSE Riga is to provide state-of-the-art education in economics and business that contributes to the economic and social development of the region, in particular the Baltic countries. This mission also includes research of relevance to the Baltic countries as well as active participation and promotion of public debate
SSE Riga employs modern teaching methods, including group work, summer internships and case studies, and has exchange programs with many leading business schools in Europe. It is thus not surprising that SSE Riga has quickly built a strong reputation for offering the highest-quality business education among employers and applicants in the Baltics.
SSE Riga 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.
“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.
