One of Latvia’s leading business schools, Banku Augstskola – BA School of Business and Finance, Riga, Latvia – is celebrating its thirtieth birthday on 27th August 2022. 

“On behalf of all of Investors in Excellence (IiE), we would like to extend our congratulations to Banku Augstskola for thirty years of academic excellence and fifteen years of working in partnership with IiE to unlock the school’s potential further and continuously improve performance.”

Investors in Excellence sends its best wishes to all staff, students, alumni and partners as they meet in Riga to celebrate the success of the BA School of Business and Finance over 30 years. A day of conversations on current and financial business topics led by Latvia’s leading experts takes place before the party begins!

Originally a banking college, established by the Bank of Latvia, Riga-based BA School has grown significantly achieving higher educational institution status in 1997, providing a full range of courses in finance and business management. 

Offering various levels of study during this time more than 12,000 students have graduated, and the college now collaborates with academic and professional industry leaders throughout Latvia and worldwide. 

The School’s Leadership wanted an external evaluation providing high-quality assurance, as well as driving continuous performance improvement. 

Working with IiE since 2007, The BA School has been reassessed and recertificated every two years to the Investors in Excellence Standard, using this performance improvement framework to maintain quality and develop high performance in all areas.

IiE’s MD and Programme Director, Kevin Hart, sends our message of congratulations on behalf of all at IiE. Kevin experienced the welcome and friendship of the BA School first-hand through training the School’s Leadership Team on Achieving Excellence and speaking at a conference on ‘The Importance of Quality Management in Higher Education’. This particular event was attended by the Minster for Higher Education and Science and leaders from other HE institutions across Latvia. 

We wish BA School continued success in academic excellence and are proud to be a part of this important legacy.
