The main reason to choose Lithuania is the economically affordable price when I compared it to Indian education. I will get the European Diploma. As Lithuania is in the Schengen Area there is a good opportunity to travel to other parts of Europe.

Why did you choose Vilniaus kolegija / University of Applied Sciences?

Vilnius kolegija / University of Applied Sciences is the 18 years old educational institution and it has a selective admission policy based on a student’s past academic record and grades (this is how I entered). Also, it offers study programmes leading to officially recognized higher education degrees such as the bachelor degrees in several study areas. Though I am in one of the pilot study programme – Creativity and Business Innovations. And moreover Vilnius kolegija / University of Applied Sciences is in the capital city – Vilnius.

This study programme gives you a complete structure about a Business startup, which starts from the creative thinking – how to think creatively in terms of a product/service development, resourcing, business ethics, business analysis, how to develop business models, organizational structure, management skills.
