On 7 March 2018 RISEBA diplomas were awarded to the students who, along with their studies in France, Kedge Business School had chosen to acquire the second higher education diploma in RISEBA bachelor's programme "European Business Studies" or master's programmes "International Business” or “International Finance”.
Director of RISEBA bachelor's study programme "European Business Studies” and master’s programme “International Finance”, Assoc. professor Ieva Brence: "We are pleased for the cooperation that is developing - there were ten bachelor's level and five master’s level students from Kedge Business School in RISEBA in the first year after the agreement was signed, yet currently the Kedge Business School has asked to increase the number of students to be allowed to study in RISEBA.”
Similarly, students from the RISEBA programmes "European Business Studies” "International Business” and “International Finance” (English track) can use the opportunity to obtain two diplomas – from France and from Latvia, if spending two semesters in frames of bachelor’s studies or one semester in frames of master's studies in France. Studies in France do not extend the overall duration of studies, nor are they subject to additional fees.
The RISEBA bachelor programme "European Business Studies" and the master's programme "International Business" are the only programmes in Latvia having gained EFMD's international accreditation EPAS. As a result – high-level international teaching staff can be attracted to the programmes, as well as the cooperation developed with higher education institutions holding the same accreditation.
