SSE Riga students from Belarus network with LATBEL and the Embassy of Belarus
On March 20th, first-year SSE Riga students from the Republic of Belarus met with LATBEL (the Society for Promotion of Latvian- Belarusian Economic Relations) and officials from the Embassy of Belarus in Latvia.
The event was a success; among LATBEL members present at the meeting there were companies representing several industries, e.g., peat, construction, engineering, finance, law, etc. Students had a chance to learn about these businesses, and companies could meet potential future interns.
Ten Belarusian students are currently studying in the SSE Riga BSc programme. Swedish Government Grants for financing studies are available for applicants from Belarus, and hopefully SSE Riga will welcome even more students from Belarus in the nearest future.
