«Many people start out to do an MBA so that they can get a well-paid job. But far more important is to find out what you want to be. Before I began my RBS studies I saw myself only as an engineer. RBS helped me to completely reinvent myself. With the right studies and mentoring, I made the mental switch from technology to management and developed a brand new set of skills. It’s a very important to understand that MBA is not a silver bullet. Having an MBA will not automatically make you a top manager; it is just an enabler. You should be ready to change yourself and take from RBS all that is on offer. It worked for me, I’ve managed to change occupations, locations and became a VP in a big, multinational company.»

"If we cut trees when they are still young, we will have no shade or shelter from the sun when we become old. I chose to study at RBS because I am taught in English, and the program has a course schedule that is as flexible as my work schedule is changeable. I studied in the U.S., and knew that I had a school in Riga that offered American style education with real world case studies, workshops and lively discussions like I had grown used to."

Chairman of the Board,
"My RBS studies were a fantastic support and help as we were establishing our clinics. During this project I had a lot of questions that were addressed by my professors and fellow students. Studies RBS is an excellent way to get both answers and questions (that you never thought of!). Professors that I spoke to about our start-up have become friends and mentors. This is a great benefit."
Chairman of the Board
"The most valuable things I got were a practical mindset and a problem-solving mentality. Business is all about getting things done! You can always wish for more information, better partners, lower taxes and smaller bureaucracy, but we all operate in an imperfect world. It can be so depressing these days, so listening to my fellow graduates these days is often like a breath of fresh air."

"At RBS you can study in a world class MBA program while still working on your home ground – Latvia. It is as least equally valuable to expand your local business network. Analysis of costs and returns proves that the RBS MBA always gives positive returns to your personal growth."
