The Stockholm School of Economics in Riga (SSE Riga) is the leading business school in the Baltic countries, offering a three-year BSc in Economics and Business and a two-year Executive MBA programme. In addition to the degree programmes, the School offers a number of Executive Education programmes. Values promoted by SSE Riga, like transparency, democracy and the market economy, are strengthened through the Centre for Media Studies at SSE Riga.
The Centre for Media Studies at SSE Riga has provided workshops and open lectures promoting quality investigative journalism since 2009. The Centre has presented some 80+ highly interactive workshops/seminars and open lectures, held five three-day summer schools of investigative reporting, presented independent research within media-related areas, given seminars on media to economics students and built a library of journalistic books. Approximately 800+ journalists have participated so far.
The Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) is an investigative reporting platform formed by 40 non-profit investigative centers, scores of journalists and several major regional news organizations around the globe. The network is spread across Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America. The organization teamed up in 2006 to do transnational investigative reporting and promote technology-based approaches to exposing organized crime and corruption worldwide. OCCRP’s goal is to help the people of the world understand how organized crime and corruption resides in their countries and in their governments.
