FT Executive Education Rankings 2017: SSE Riga Executive Education is #1 in the Nordic and Baltic region
On May 15, 2017, the Financial Times published their annual worldwide ranking of executive education providers. According to the latest worldwide ranking, SSE Riga Executive Education is the number 1 provider in the Nordic and Baltic region and 26th in the world as part of the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) group. This year SSE has advanced its position in the global ranking by 2 positions.
“These results reflect the very high quality of our training programmes and once again prove that the School offers state-of-the-art education and is a centre of excellence in the Baltics. Most people know that SSE Riga offers degree programmes in economics and business, but it is perhaps not so well known that since 1994 the SSE Riga Executive Education Department also offers a wide range of shorter management and skill development programmes for mid and senior level managers as well as customized programmes for companies. We hope that this most prestigious recognition will also bring new participants in!” says Nellija Titova, the Director of the Executive Education Department at SSE Riga.
Every spring the SSE Riga Executive Education Department takes part in the yearly Financial Times Executive Education ranking as part of the SSE group. The statistical figures for SSE Riga’s open and custom programmes in 2016 were included in the overall rating of SSE. In 2016, 208 participants from 9 countries took part in SSE Riga open programmes.
