The curriculum was created at a time when Latvia had just entered the EU and there were real opportunities for enjoying the freedom of mobility, which is at the core of the European Union. The students' interest in this study programme was great. After a couple of years the students already had the opportunity to follow the programme in the English language. This approach made it possible to attract students from other EU countries, and local students had the opportunity to learn professional English and also improve the conversational skills. All graduates of the study programme have succeeded in finding a job, as well as have had the opportunity to pursue a career, thanks to the obtained professional degree.
