about the university
Stockholm School of Economics in Riga (SSE Riga) is one of the leading business schools in Europe, as verified by the Financial Times European Business School rating, which put SSE Riga in first place for the Baltic region. The university teaches business and economics to students not just from the three Baltic States, eight Eastern Europe countries and other regions as well.
About the project
SSE Riga was looking for a cost-effective way to provide their faculty and students with latest Microsoft Office software outside university premises.The solution was a set of Office 365 ProPlus licenses, given to faculty and students upon starting their studies for the entire study period, which could be used on multiple devices at once, enabling use of Office 365 products in school as well as at home. The solution was quick to implement and license management simple thanks to the online license management platform developed by Microsoft.
Since the implementation of Office 365, staff and students no longer need to worry about their software licenses, installation files for PC and MAC or problems caused by outdated versions of Microsoft Office software. This has also made life easier for their IT department, as everyone has access to the same, most recent versions of the software and with tons of simple how-to instructions readily available online.
Introducing Office 365 and offering it to students and staff was a very successful project that not only allowed to provide students with the necessary software, but also facilitated the acquisition and use of Office. We plan to keep using the Office 365 software and to integrate it deeper into the existing IT systems.
