The joint Norwegian-Latvian International Master Program in Innovation and Entrepreneurship was launched in 2003 as a continuation of a 6-year successful cooperation between Riga Technical University (Latvia) and Buskerud University College (Norway).
The program was developed taking into consideration the similar study program development in USA and experience of Norwegianpartners, which was adapted in compliance with the legislative requirements of EU.
The general aim of the study programme as of any other master study programme is to train highly qualified management specialists for both private and public sectors; the specialists who are competitive in the labour market and who are able to conduct research and carry out pedagogical work.
During the study process, the students acquire theoretical and practical knowledge and skills needed for the efficient management of a company and its departments. Moreover, the students enhance their abilities to plan, predict and manage the rational activity of a company corresponding to the aims set, economic environment and situation in the labour market. Special attention is devoted to promoting innovative and creative thinking in order to ensure necessary competences for new product development.
