“Why Vilnius University? I can tell just one thing. When I visited Lithuania first time and saw Vilnius University, it took my breath away, and my first thought was I WANT TO STUDY HERE! It is, on the one hand, one of the oldest universities not only in Lithuania, but in the world, and on the other hand, it is one of the most modern universities, with great facilities, gorgeous library, actual study programs and hearty welcome of all students from every corner of the world. Also, Vilnius University is located in the beautiful city – Vilnius, so you will never get bored.

Getting a Master’s degree in Finance and Banking at Vilnius University: I really like to study here. The lecturers are passionate, have considerable knowledge and experience, apply newest and actual learning methods, so, you are swept in the studying process all time. As well, if you like good, professional English – you are welcome, all lecturers speak English fluently. But, you should study hard, because a large amount of studying materials you will face on a daily basis.

Finance program in Vilnius University is strong, both theoretical and practical study program, which includes an actual knowledge base, practical skills, international experience and practice. I would like to recommend it because it is the place where you are always valued and respected, the place for people with goals, wishes and ambitions. Here I have learned how to achieve my career goals, and completion of the program will put you in a position to be prepared for the future. This year and half of my masters have been slipped away really fast, and I will miss all people and this place!”
