Ekaterine Azarashvili, 2nd year student from Georgia:
“One year ago while considering master studies in European Universities, my attention was stolen by a brand new master programme in International Project Management at VU BS. After a small research, I discovered that Lithuania has already accumulated huge experience in project management and continues to develop it.

“I chose to study at BS because I was looking for an innovative and highly demanded master program in a multicultural environment. The International Project Management degree course has met my expectations. Learning methodologies and strategies about process optimization for businesses or organizations or tools to successfully manage, coordinate and plan a project are just a few major academic assets which I will take with me upon graduation.
Lectures are explicitly motivated to have a vivid classroom interaction with a diverse group of international students from all over the world. During my wide spectrum of courses I had to chance to grow academically as well as to enlarge my cultural and personal horizon. BS at VU and the master program itself is well organized and everyone strives to achieve highest quality. Lithuania and Vilnius are one of the most welcoming places in Europe. Western values meet Baltic culture and make Lithuania a charming and unique country in Eastern Europe. Vilnius has an amazing Old Town with all kinds of entertainment possibilities – museums, hip restaurants, full bars and trendy clubs. I am very pleased to have taken up my post-graduate studies in a fast-developing and beautiful European country such as Lithuania.”
