Riga Business School has been entrusted with delivering the educational content of the Mini MBA study program in Innovation Management. This continues our successful long-term collaboration with the Investment and Development Agency of Latvia.

On November 17, right before Latvia’s Independence Day, Mini MBA group of Innovation Management had a significant day – the course participants gave their final presentations followed by graduation.

The seventh Mini MBA group has completed its training. This time, study participants came from such industries as mobile communications, energy, and pharmaceuticals. Innovation management was learned by students whose direct job responsibilities include innovation development, process management, and new product development.

This Mini MBA program provides the knowledge  how to set up an innovative business and presents students with all stages of the process of creating and implementing innovation: the need for innovation, identifying and evaluating innovation ideas, developing and deploying innovation, and the sustainability of innovation.

At the end of the program, students presented their projects, which covered topics such as the circular economy, the Internet of Things, and supporting charity.

This group’s best project presentation title was awarded to Kristine Grapmane, COO at Stenders. In her presentation “Solving the soap waste problem” she addressed the issue of soap waste and how to process and repurpose leftover soap,

In today’s economic and political environment, when you operate in conditions of uncertainty, the development of yourself and employees is very important. I highly evaluate the content of this Mini MBA program and its relevance to business demands. As well I very much appreciate the lecturers and their professionalism both from theoretical and as well the business point of view. I would recommend the program to small and medium-size business managers, and project managers, especially in companies that are working on innovations – new products, processes, what make the impact. That is also an excellent opportunity to broaden the network and learn from each other.
