Aiste Bertasiene, Lithuania. Graduate.

Educational Management Master program is a unique program that gathers students with different background in education - teachers, managers, non-formal educators. These studies helped me look at education from the perspective of multiple disciplines and get acquainted with research methods in the field. Studies take place in a small cohort of colleagues, so there is a possibility to establish contact with teachers, ask questions and receive support when needed, and personalize the learning experience according to career goals. Besides, thanks to the extensive international connections of VMU I had a chance to go on study exchange abroad and gain even more international experience.
