Iryna Kaniuk“The decision to start my Master’s studies at VU Business School was definitely life-changing for me. Being a part of various group tasks and projects has become an integral part of the whole studying process. One of the greatest values I have gained so far is the opportunity to work with and learn from my colleagues as well as experience challenges together. Furthermore, I am impressed by how skillfully most of our professors not only manage online workshops but also engage all students in active participation during the classes. I believe that VU Business School is an exceptional start for my future career."
