RISEBA is a university type private higher educational institution fully accredited by the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Latvia.
Being one of the first private higher education institutions in Latvia, today RISEBA is among 10 largest higher education institutions in Latvia (both public and private) with almost 3000 students, including 200 international students, who attend 17 study programmes of different levels and directions, and more than 8000 alumni.
Over the last two decades RISEBA has gone through a substantial transformation from a small ambitious business school to the university that provides, in addition to business and management programmes, studies in communications, audiovisual media arts and architecture, thus transforming the institution into“the place where business meets arts”.
RISEBA stands out from the other higher education institutions as the one having clear international focus and is distinguished by the exclusivity of the study programmes offered and variety of languages of instruction.
RISEBA provides programmes which are either unique in the market or were first introduced to the market by RISEBA. It is one of the few institutions that offers full degree programmes in three languages – Latvian, English and Russian.
RISEBA is spread across five sites: three buildings of RISEBA main campus are located in Riga (the capital city), one regional branch is based in Daugavpils (the second largest city in Latvia).
