“I must admit that before setting my foot in Latvia I knew nothing about the country. I was, however, happily surprised to discover a vibrant and culturally rich environment. I joined the University of Latvia with the goal to explore new ways of learning, and above all, the professional Master’s degree in Business Administration has provided me with what I can literally call an international education. Professors and professionals from all over the world, e.g., United States, France, Italy, Austria, not only teach you but also share their own experience. Participating in realistic case assignments and events such as international conferences and videoconferences, was also a good way to share and put into practice what had been learned and observed. At the end of the two-year study period, this has been quite a challenging, rewarding experience, and a huge opportunity for personal growth and development, not to mention obtaining a large contact list from worldwide student participants.”

Studying with people from all around the world and attending lectures of both local and foreign experts is an amazing experience, and for any student aspiring to be successful and gain expertise in this field it’s exactly what is needed. Attending this program at the Faculty of Economics of University of Latvia will give you all the knowledge needed to become an excellent businessperson on a global level, understand processes and lead the company in a best possible manner!”
