"The University of Latvia combines diverse research, study and innovative activities in order to achieve an internationally recognised higher education and developed science. In today´s rapidly changing circumstances, it is especially necessary to transfer theoretical knowledge to concrete economic sectors in order to promote the growth of both each individual undertaking and the economy as a whole.

The Doctorate programme in Business Administration is a great opportunity also for professionals, who have already acquired a Masters Degree, to improve their skills in research work and to immediately utilise these skills in their professional work; to extend their knowledge of the interaction and linkages of the internal and external environment in respect of business activities, and to utilise various econometric and management methods in business activities, as well as to enrich their experience by exchanging points of view with other professionals, based on solid and advanced scientific knowledge.

The SMBS – University of Salzburg Business School is an excellent association for the achievement of the high aims of this study programme and for the students themselves."
