Marija De Potestad - Deprofes expert (Spain) "I was fascinated by the studies of this programme. Previously, I graduated from another Lithuanian university, therefore I can compare the studies objectively. This programme and studies, communication with lecturers, who are professionals in their area, inspired me, taught me to discover strategic challenges and understand them. We analysed many models of success of world leaders and most successful companies, which encouraged me to try and become a leader myself. Most importantly, I understood that it is quite possible."
