Entry Requirements and Application Form
A study programme that offers a world of experience
I truly enjoyed the world-class lecturers of diverse backgrounds from Scandinavia, Europe and the US. Each and every one of them had unique practical experiences to share with us as already experienced managers. It was possible to combine the 4-day intensive monthly modules plus home assignments with your everyday life at the office and at home.

Students get challenged during the Executive MBA programme through assignments, project work and case studies. One very important factor is that the maturity and work experience of the students enhances the quality of the discussions. The students recognise that the programme was worth the financial and time investment!
Board Member, AAS Balta, Latvia
I earned my bachelor’s degree in the United Kingdom, and once I made my decision to continue my studies and earn an Executive Master of Business Administration diploma, I was looking for a school with a strong international background, a great and versatile study programme, experienced and inspiring professors, and a flexible timetable that would suit my work schedule.

My 10th grade teacher of economics told me that what you study in school for 3 years will be covered in a bachelor’s degree in one course. In the Executive MBA courses, I have noticed that what I learned during my bachelor studies is covered in the first two hours.

So far the Executive MBA programme has fulfilled everything I wished for when I joined the programme. Every single module we have had has taught me something new or broadened my existing knowledge – mostly thanks to good lecturers from different countries and backgrounds, all of them on the cutting edge of their field.

The SSE Riga Executive MBA is a great development experience that elevates you to the next business level in 1- 1,5 years, thanks to well-balanced multidimensional programme, the professional international faculty, and a module design that allows you to focus on learning. In my case it allowed me to get a position as an International Director during my studies.
