Vytenis Šuklys
Vice-president for Finance and Administrations, Avion Express airlines

Bachelor of Economics

„I studied at the Faculty of Economics in 2003-2007, in the Economic Analysis branch of the Economics bachelor programme. Although my studies took place a while ago, I hold a lot of positive memories about lecturers and study content. It may sound odd, however, in my opinion, people who study alongside you are no less important than the quality of studies or the qualification of lecturers. When I joined studies in Economics, probably the most advanced students from all over Lithuania studied there. I clearly remember my first lecture of Higher Mathematics, when associate professor Vaclovas Daukšas asked students who gained 100 points at the final high school exam, to raise their hands. More than half of the group did! I was not among them, however, being with the best students subconsciously encourages endeavor, and fosters the mentality of the winner.

Today, I hold a position of Vice-president for Finance and Administrations in Avion Express airlines. I work in corporate finance for more than 15 years, and my career began at one of the BIG4 auditing companiesWithout long discussions on the relevance of the program and teaching quality, I would only state that I communicate with a lot of people from the financial sector and business environment, who hold high positions and pursue exciting careers. And there are a lot of my coursemates among them! To me, this is the best evidence that my choice to study at VU EVAF was worth it."



Laima Juknevičiūtė
Executive Director JSC Brolis semiconductors

Bachelor of Economics
Master's studies in applied macroeconomics

„Studies at the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration, VU, provided me a strong background to strive for ambitious goals. I mostly appreciate the fact that alongside the basic knowledge, University has taught me self-containment, independently seeking additional information, going deep into the topic, adapting the acquired knowledge in particular situations. These skills were extremely significant in my career: flexibility, courage to try new activities and readiness for constant improvement help me in my everyday work.

From studies at the university, each of us takes as much as they actually want."



Nora Žukauskaitė
Global Head of Marketing at Ciaté London

Bachelor of Management and Business Administration

„The area where I currently work has faced an incredible amount of changes in the past years. The way customers discover and purchase a product, and from the other side: the way companies sell it, is significantly different nowadays from the time I have studied in VU FEBA. Despite that, I often remember the classical marketing books I studied and sleepless nights of preparation for assignments. I had an opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge in management and corporate performance in practice during my studies, as I actively participated in student activities, and I am grateful to all who contributed to this. Such activities helped me promptly understand how the theory works in real-life situations. These were some of the most vivid years that will remain in my memory forever, thanks to the amazing VU FEBA community and people I met there."
