Evita Lune discusses the value of an MBA, "Ir Nauda"

Riga, Latvia - Evita Lune, Partner at Pedersen & Partners talks to ”Ir Nauda” about the practical value of an MBA from the view point of an executive search expert.

Latvia can boast a large number of managers and specialists with higher degrees. However, the requirements are low in many Latvian universities, and an MBA could be a business genius or a wealthy housewife.

Do employers in Latvia appreciate an MBA degree?  In general, the education obtained from the most prestigious universities in Latvia and abroad (mostly from Western Universities) is highly appreciated by highly-educated employers, provided that the company is sufficiently large and complex to afford such an educated manager or specialist.

During the Executive Search process, most of the focus is on experience, which is more important than education in Latvia. Indeed, the experience gained in some companies could be more valuable than an MBA degree from an average university.
