This will further strengthen SSE Riga’s position within the SSE network and contribute to its overall development. Anders Paalzow will envisage closer and mutually beneficial cooperation between the SSE Riga and SSE Russia teams in terms of programme development, faculty development and alumni affairs. 

 “In his role as Rector of SSE Riga he has proven strong leadership in an environment that requires academic rigour, high sensitivity and an entrepreneurial mindset. I’m convinced that he will identify valuable synergies between our institutions in Riga and Russia and am very much looking forward to continuing our cooperation,” comments Lars Strannegård, President of the Board of Directors of SSE Russia and President of the Stockholm School of Economics.

Anders Paalzow will remain in his role as Rector of SSE Riga and divide his time between Russia and Latvia. SSE Russia and SSE Riga will remain separate entities.

Currently SSE Russia offers two EMBA programmes – one in English and one in Russian – as well as open and corporate executive education programmes.
