Management Psychology and Supervision

RISEBA University College programme “Management Psychology and Supervision” means more than obtaining a Master’s degree in management sciences or new knowledge. Within this programme, under the management of experienced lecturers who work in their fields, a new and very much needed profession in Latvia is acquired, which helps to improve the professional lives of employees. According to experience, I can say that during the study process you will find out many new things about yourself, you will evaluate your professional activity and maybe will introduce changes to it.
