General Information

The mission of the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga has since its inception in 1994 been to provide a state-of-the-art education in business and economics that contributes to the economic and social development of the region, in particular Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Today this is done through two degree programmes – the original B.Sc. programme and since 2002 also through the SSE Riga Executive MBA programme – as well as through various executive education activities. The mission also includes research, and SSE Riga should produce state-of-the-art research of relevance to the Baltic countries and the school should actively participate and foster public debate in its fields of competence.

The School’s mission rests on the same four cornerstones as in 1994, each of them of equal importance:

  • Academically strong and highly motivated students.
  • International students and faculty.
  • Independence from the state university system.
  • A strong brand name.

Study Programmes:
SSE Riga offers two degree programmes: the three-year B.Sc. in Economics and Business and the two-year Executive MBA programme. In addition to the degree programmes, the school offers a number of executive education programmes – open as well as in-house programmes. In cooperation with the William Davidson Institute at the University of Michigan, the SSE Riga Executive Education Department runs the Strategic Management Program that is offered every spring.

Through its participation in Erasmus, membership in the Higher Education Support Program (HESP) and through a number of bilateral agreements, the school offers a wide range of exchange opportunities.

SSE Riga has, since 2006, appeared in the Financial Times Ranking of European Business Schools. The School is ranked together with its 'mother', the Stockholm School of Economics, and its 'sister' , the Stockholm School of Economics in Russia (SSE Russia). SSE Riga has been recognized as the best economics and business school in the Baltics.
