My course with SSE Riga was the perfect opportunity to enlarge my contact network with senior executives. Spending a few days every month with a group of talented managers and professors in a way reloads both your academic and very practical skill sets.

The right investment at the right time! During our Executive MBA programme we were professionally taught how to lead the process of change in our respective companies. Then, due to the severe economic crisis, each of us gained a real opportunity to implement our acquired knowledge in real life. Thanks to this course and the profound knowledge I gained in it, our company has got through this tough period and maintains its successful path of development on its way to prosperity in the near future.

The Executive MBA at SSE Riga has, so far, been one of my most challenging and exciting learning experiences. And the reason for this is very simple: one has, altogether, a proficient and international faculty and a group of classmates made up of experienced and talented executives. And if one is an international executive, that’s the gateway needed for understanding what the Baltic and Eastern European region is all about.

SSE Riga is a place in which people are inspired to create a new business, to love it and to learn how to do it better than their competitors. It delivers an excellent business education.

Nowadays business and economics are becoming ever more important elements in diplomacy. The Executive MBA program was a comprehensive introduction to the ”real” world of business, after having worked for the government for almost 20 years. Many of the business insights and models apply to any organization, including government organizations. In the diplomatic service, you never know what your next posting is going to be. But it is very likely that commercial and economic matters will be an important, possibly major part of my portfolio – and then the lessons and insights gained in the Executive MBA program will be very valuable indeed.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Netherlands



The Executive MBA at SSE Riga is an excellent investment in time and money. It is a great combination of theory and investigation of real-life scenarios. The knowledge gained can be readily taken back to the business environment. It is a great forum as well – one can learn just as much from classmates as from the professor.

Dmitry Tsymber
Country Leader, GE Money, Latvia



Being in the Executive MBA programme is like finally making all the sense out of the BSc programme material. Every course has some deep insights, and what's more, the moment comes when you understand how all these different courses work together. This is not just a refresher; it takes things to the next level.
