“Congratulations, this is your own independent flight into the professional future. It’s up to you where you will fly, it’s up to you how you will fly, and what you will achieve”, said Sir Richard Branson, Sir Richard Branson, Honorary Doctor of KTU, founder of Virgin, one of the most famous entrepreneurs of all times in his congratulatory speech for all Kaunas University of Technology freshers.

The programme of the event was packed with entertaining shows: performances, dances, concerts delivered by the University art societies and renowned Lithuanian groups and actors.
