WHY INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS STUDY PROGRAMME AT VILNIUS UNIVERSITY?

The key feature of the International Business studies is a strong orientation towards real-life topics and problem-solving approaches, development of analytical and communication skills. Taught subjects are devised in such a way as to ensure active learning both of the conveyed knowledge and of the essential skills. Weekly class time is typically divided into formal lectures and seminars or tutorials. In addition to the class time, students are expected to undertake independent study preparing for lectures and seminars: doing homework, preparing class presentations, carrying out research assignments and writing essays. 

In this programme you will get a broad education and the perception of a real business world.
