It is essential for any potential entrepreneur that the university not only provides a theoretical education, but also gives an introduction to the dynamic business environment, demonstrates how to create a successful start-up and assists in establishing the first contacts in Latvia and abroad. The new programme is designed to be very close to the industry, which benefits both students and the business environment.

Business today has no borders on the map. I started developing my mobile app Drone Pilot in Riga, continued in Estonia, but am now working on it in London. RSU is the most international among Latvian universities – a quarter of students are from abroad, and these are ideal conditions to prepare for the international environment that awaits every start-up entrepreneur.
