The history of Tallinn School of Economics (Tallinna Majanduskool) goes back into the year 1906, when Gustav Narusbek established the private commercial school and it is one of the biggest and oldest business colleges in Estonia.
Tallinn School of Economics is a state-owned vocational school operating in the area of administration of the Ministry of Education and Research. Because of this, the school proceeds in its plans from the national education policy on which the financing of the school also depends. We frequently cooperate with major employers and professional associations in order to consider their requirements in our curricula.
We believe, it is important for the further development of Estonia how flexible the educational system is able to react to rapid changes in society and the economy. Therefore, it is the aim of the school to develop free, confident, and responsible personalities, who are ready to participate in decision-making and be responsible for what is done and how it is done, who are able to cope in society, life and further learning.
