    The concept of lifelong learning is relevant for business. It is well elaborated by researchers in various sectors, however tourism sector is not explored enough in this field. This paper focuses on lifelong learning and competence acquisition and development of front-line employees in tourism sector. The aim of the paper is to define how front-line employees in Lithuanian tourism sector develop competence during lifelong learning. The paper consists of literature analysis on lifelong learning and competence development, empirical research and presentation of findings along with conclusions. The purpose of empirical research is to picture the competencies of employees in Lithuanian tourism information centers (TIC) as well as the learning forms the competencies are acquired by. The qualitative survey, semi-structured interview of seven TIC directors has been conducted in 2009. The survey has identified a number of competencies of frontline employees in tourism sector. It has also disclosed how the competencies are acquired. The findings show that informal learning is considered to be more significant and occurring more often comparing with formal and non-formal learning in Lithuanian tourism sector. Practical implications are revealed by disclosing the competencies significant for front-line employees in tourism sector and the learning forms having the biggest impact in competencies acquisition and development. It enables front-line employees to choose the most effective learning methods and save time and costs. The paper is original in the way empirical research has been conducted. Qualitative research especially in tourism sector is still rare in Lithuania. Also the findings identify the most effective forms of learning of front-line employees in Lithuanian tourism sector.

    The longitudinal study was conducted in private business university providing programmes in Management and Business Administration and Economics over the period of 2006–2008. The data derived from the study revealed the motivation and expectations of the first year students behind entering a private business university, and the relationship of personality type to the choice of the study programme. Introduction. The attitude of the public towards higher education has changed due to the development of the country’s economic and social areas, the fast pace of life, unemployment, poverty, rapid introduction of new technologies, high market requirements for employees, globalization, and personal changes in people’s lives. The analysis of the processes taking place in higher education institutions is of great importance in the context of constantly ongoing reforms of higher education in recent years. One of the issues discussed most often is the quality of education and studies. Although quality is measured by the results of performance, the parameters of the process and the level of satisfaction of needs, the analysis of university and college lecturers’ competences is in the focus of attention, and motivation of students to study are ignored. In pursuance of high quality of studies, it is equally important to investigate students’, as the recipients of study, study motives, expectations, and vocational choices. The research problem dealt with in this paper can be stated as follows: how students’ personality determines the motivation to study at the private business university, their expectations and choice of the study programme? The research object is the relationship among the personality, motivation, expectations and the choice of the study programme of the first year students at the private business university. Research aim is to theoretically and empirically base the relationship of the students’ motivation, expectations about the university and their personalities. Objectives of the study: • To overview the academic research on the relationship of personality in making career choices, motivation and expectations. • Based on the academic and empirical research results to identify personality profiles of the first year students at the private business university. • To explore the students’ motives behind the choice of studies and their expectations. • To analyse the relationship between the personal traits of the students and their motivation to study their selected profession. Methods of the Study: analysis of the scientific literature, questionnaire surveys, and interviews.
