Stockholm School of Economics in Riga

Riga, Latvia
The mission of the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga has since its inception in 1994 been to provide a state-of-the-art education in business and economics that contributes to the economic and social development of the region, in particular Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Today this is done through two degree programmes the original B.Sc. programme and since 2002 also through the SSE Riga Executive MBA programme as well as through various executive education activities. The mission also includes research, and SSE Riga should produce state-of-the-art research of relevance to the Baltic countries and the school should actively participate and foster public debate in its fields of competence.


The Schools mission rests on the same four cornerstones as in 1994, each of them of equal importance:

  • Academically strong and highly motivated students.
  • International students and faculty.
  • Independence from the state university system.
  • A strong brand name.
