SSE Riga Foundation

SSE Riga Foundation

Being the sole owner of the School, the SSE Riga Foundation plays an active role in its development.

SSE Riga was established in 1993 as a joint project between the Stockholm School of Economics and the Latvian and Swedish Governments with the purpose to contribute to the democratic and economic development in the three Baltic countries.

In 2010, the SSE Riga Foundation was established with the purpose of taking over the shares in the School held by its two owners, the Stockholm School of Economics and the Latvian Government.

The founders were the Stockholm School of Economics, the University of Latvia on behalf of the Latvian Government, and the SSE Riga Alumni Association.
