Faculty of Economics and Management

The VMU Faculty of Economics and Management is one of the best internationally acclaimed schools of economics and management in Lithuania. The international network of higher education schools EDUNIVERSAL has evaluated 7000 universities around the world and selected 1000 of them as providers of the best studies of business administration and management. In 2007 and 2012, this list included the Faculty of Economics and Management at Vytautas Magnus University.

The faculty offers studies at three levels – Bachelor’s, Master’s and doctoral – while the study programmes pull in the brightest Lithuanian high school graduates. Also functioning at the faculty is the Business Consulting and Continuous Education Centre, which also accepts admissions to various learning programmes, ranging from short specialized courses to Master’s degree studies of management and administration.

Well-qualified faculty teachers contribute to the evolving responsibility, diligence, self-reliance and communicability of the future graduates. Student internship is given high priority at the faculty. Successful careers of the alumni at various Lithuanian business organizations, local branches of foreign companies and governmental institutions serve as a testament to the fact that the studies offer enough universal and specialized knowledge to help the students successfully integrate into the competitive world of business.

The students of the Faculty of Economics and Management were the first at the university to participate in Campus Europae, the academic exchange programme of European universities. Students travelling to study at a foreign university spend one semester studying not only the specialized subjects but also the language of the country they are visiting; in the second semester, they attend lectures that are read in foreign language. VMU is the only Lithuanian university participating in the programme.

Students also take part in the Erasmus exchange programme, which allows them to spend half a year acquiring knowledge at universities of Germany, Denmark, Spain, Finland, Greece, France, Italy, Norway and other countries.
