Here are a few of our facilities: RGSL has a modern study environment with traditional values. The objective of all teaching at RGSL is to ensure learning by doing, with the teachers promoting both group activities and individual attention. Classes are based on discussion and case studies as the best learning platform for highly motivated students. Active student life is encouraged both at the academic and social levels.

Many teaching facilities are shared with the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga, creating a campus atmosphere and adding to the international atmosphere. The student and faculty canteen shared by the two institutions forms a daily contact point for students. The student associations of the different programs play an active role in reviewing and supervising program content. Lines of communication are short and open, with direct access for each student to all teachers. Students become members of the RGSL family and later keep in contact through the alumni association.
