This is a master’s programme that prepares highly qualified professionals to work in the fields of international finance. Students learn the most important skills in this field: collecting and processing financial information, calculating and analysing financial ratios, and developing proposals to improve the financial performance of an enterprise or institution.
This programme is also open to students whose previous higher education is not related to this field.

The on-site lectures take place in the evenings and include both theoretical lectures and practical activities: group exercises, interactive discussions and lectures by guest speakers. Most of the programme’s faculty members are highly regarded and active in the financial sector.
“During the course, the lecturers always involve the students in discussions and take into account the students’ wishes regarding the learning of certain practical aspects that students need in their daily professional life,” is how a graduate of this programme, Member of the Board of SIA “Abrams Business Services” and the responsible accountant Oto Kristiāns Abrams, describes the course of studies.
