Practicing finance management in Luxembourg

“It is not easy to find a good job in Lithuania after graduation, without relevant experience in economic, management or administrative field”, says Kristina Bucevičiūtė, who has graduated from masters in management at the School of Economy and Business at KTU.

Internship in Lithuanian Embassy – great start for a diplomatic career

“Participation in any exchange programme helps to develop personality, to look at yourself as if from aside. This alone should be a great encouragement for travelling”, says Ugnė Terentjevaitė, who has graduated from European studies at KTU this June.

Ugnė did her internship in Lithuanian Embassy in Romania.

„Of course, I was scared. I had to go alone into a country where I didn’t know anyone and to live there for three months! It was a great challenge for me, who is used to travel, to participate in projects together with many friends and acquaintances. However, soon I got to know people in the new place and realised that Bucharest is an incredible city. Also, everyone speaks English here so I didn’t have any problems to communicate”, says Ugnė.

The young graduate says that participation in Erasmus+ internship has provided an invaluable experience – she has gained many competencies needed for working in diplomatic missions, improved her English skills, o change of environment has strengthened not only her professional competencies, but also her personality.
