If I chose to describe RISEBA’s EBS program in a few words, I would say – multinational, personal and auspicious.

In my first year, I was struck by the level of internationality and the open-minded atmosphere in EBS. It is a successful mix of different people who not only get along but actually carry out projects and organize events. This is complimented by the personal approach of our lecturers who are busy professionals themselves, yet never fail to interact with each student and offer help if necessary. RISEBA atmosphere not only makes you feel comfortable as a student but also inspires you to do something yourself – whether it is taking part in The British Chamber of Commerce event or becoming an entrepreneur.

This is the place which unites the best students with the best professors and wonderful opportunities which make it so special.

This is where I have developed my personal and professional skills, gained so many experiences, e.g. internship in France, LCCI exams, which are very valuable. There are amazing people around me who have become my friends.

This is an extraordinary experience that I would recommend for everybody because this you can get only here, in RISEBA.

At the end of the 12th grade I was interested in many things and had some ideas in completely different areas until I came across Europan Business Studies program in RISEBA. Paula Renāte Lūkina

EBS included everything I was looking for and even more - the international accreditation EPAS, double-degree and ERASMUS possibilities made this program even more interesting for me, as well as the fact the lectures are held in English.

After my first year of studies, I am completely satisfied with the program, teachers, projects and events I was able to participate. The environment is international and I have not talked to so many foreigner people in my entire life as I did in the past 10 months. The atmosphere is friendly and it is clear that the professors are experts in their areas and passionate about the subjects they are teaching. European Business studies are for people who want to get an international education, are not afraid to challenge themselves and achieve great things

In the beginning, I wasn’t sure about my English skills and I was afraid it would become a problem for my studies. But now I have luckily finished the first year of European business studies and I am grateful to my teachers – they are not only masters of their field, but also wonderful educators that understand the students’ needs, can help and support us. I experienced a truly individual approach to the studies.

I am happy that besides the lectures in English there is also a possibility to deepen the knowledge during English for Business and Spoken English for Industry and Commerce classes. These classes helped me to improve my English skills and to continue studies of economics, management, marketing and other courses successfully. I believe it’s crucial to study languages when studying business. I agree with Federico Fellini who once said that a different language is a different vision of life, and I am happy I can broaden my horizons by studying English, Russian, French and Spanish languages. I will use the rest of possibilities provided by RISEBA and try to get a diploma of London Chamber of Commerce and Industry. It will increase my competitiveness on the international labour market.

So I can really state that RISEBA is a gateway to an international career!

When I came to RISEBA I was very encouraged to develop my English skills and to learn new languages such as French and Spanish, which definitely helped me in my future carrier and life.

At the first year of studies, I was completely shocked by the extremely high level of professors and the programme itself. The atmosphere was very friendly and the studies went very fun. The other important thing for me was that I met a lot of friends there, and after many years we are still in touch.

As you can see my profession is a Pilot, but I could not become a pilot without the RISEBA`s European Business studies programme, when I had the job interview, I was chosen because of my powerful degree which I had.

At the end, I can say that EBS programme gives best knowledge and opportunities in all aspects of your future life and carrier, everything I achieved could not be done without the RISEBA`s help. Thank you!

Education is the best investment you can make, and I think RISEBA was the best decision that I could have made.

One of my main responsibilities on my current job is to conduct an interview with highly positioned people, such as Financial directors or Latvian and European bank presidents. EBS programme gave me a solid communication and listening skills and perfect knowledge of how to speak with people, and understanding of discipline importance, special thanks to Elena Malesko and Polina Naidenko for that.

Graduating from RISEBA`s EBS programme, helped me to achieve everything that I currently have.

I must say that 4 study years in RISEBA gave me so much, that it is really hard to express everything in such short text. Briefly speaking EBS programme, gave me everything that I needed to understand what exactly I want from my future carrier.  Lots of international projects where I met new friends and possible future colleagues from different countries. Summer studies in Biarritz – France, was an amazing opportunity to take my french language to the next level and just to have a great great time. At the end I can say, if you want to be something more than just a regular student – choose RISEBA, be number one!

I believe, RISEBA is a university that fulfils expectations of its students.

From one side, you will receive all the necessary information and gain knowledge for your future job opportunities, which as well will be practised in classes during a variety of practical cases. In EBS classes it was the best combination, because it is much easier to understand all aspects of the business by use of examples and practice of cases. In my present job, the knowledge and experience I gained were very useful.

On the other side, RISEBA and particularly EBS program gives its students a lot of opportunities to experience their first success or failures, improve communication skills and practice collaboration with foreigners, participate in a lot of different events and every holiday in RISEBA becomes something special. EBS program is not only a curse that gives its students to study French language but also provides with an opportunity to practice and improve knowledge of the language in France. It was the greatest experience.

European Business Studies programme gives opportunities to grow both personally and professionally. What I can tell from my experience is that EBS and especially LCCI diplomas give a great advantage on the job market today. Moreover, not only the diploma is important - most of knowledge and experience I got during 4 years of studies help me much in my everyday work today. Apart from great career opportunities I feel compelled to point out that the whole study process was exciting and challenging thanks to experienced, charismatic and highly professional lecturers and professors.

The main advantage of the EBS programme in my view is its international environment- the programme is carried out fully in English, therefore from the first year of studies I have had an opportunity to broaden my horizons by studying together with foreign students and be taught by local and foreign teachers.

The reason why I chose to study RISEBA was the opportunity to develop my linguistic skills -primarily business English language skills since the studies are in English, secondarily, business French language for the entire study period with the linguistic practice trip in France which is included in the program.Thirdly, Spanish language choice in the 3rd year.

Learnt the language, business and management skills I practically apply leading Academic direction at RISEBA Student Council.
For the future I plan to use international opportunities provided by RISEBA- Erasmus exchange program and / or doubledegree opportunity to study year abroad, receiving also foreign university diploma.

To start with, I was always wondering how to become an entrepreneur one day and truly believed that in order to create my own business I just need that ‘’Gold’’ mind taking idea and everyone will start to clap and applause me for that. However, I realized that the truth is that it is not only about the luck but also about execution, which is 99% of the success. That is why, I think it is so important to study well and go through different kind of practical experiences in order to gain sufficient knowledge and skills to be a successful entrepreneur.

Thus, studies in the EBS provide me with a fortune of things I need to know: starting from economics and marketing in the first year going to entrepreneurship, logistics and leadership in the latter stages of the programme. However, it is not only about the courses which I value the most, but also about the possibilities EBS programme offers to me. For example, after my second year, I had a great opportunity to go for professional internship in Greece, where I had the possibility to apply all my knowledge gained in the programme and learn practical things. My employers highly appreciated my fluency in Business English and Business Administration which I gained from LCCI courses.

To conclude, I would like to cite Lord Beaverbrook who told “Business is more exciting than any game”, although if you know or wishing to know how to play it. I am very glad that I have the opportunity to learn and use the rules of business that are brought to me by EBS programme.

When choosing what to study I had set my mind to finding a programme that would be in English and recognized internationally. Luckily, RISEBA EBS offered that. So, what are the other benefits? It offers an insight in many areas of business! Starting from economics, marketing and ending with leadership and logistics.  You can strengthen and widen your vocabulary in English and French, and what helps even more when learning a language is the international environment around you, which means that I can use about 4 languages on a daily basis!

enables me to take on opportunities such as great internships which I would not have had otherwise if it wasn't for this university and programme.EBSLast but not least, what stands out in my eyes is the personal approach to students from the professors. Be prepared for a lot of team work and critical thinking, but I promise you, in the end, it will help you in your future career. And talking about career, studying
