Student testimonials

Sima Šeškaitė, Graduate:
From the first day I started Communication and Creative Technologies programme studies at Mykolas Romeris University I was really satisfied with the quality of lectures and experienced professors. Most of the professors were Lithuanians however, we had few American professors and it brought a real international feeling in our classes. We had so many diverse and interesting tasks as well like creating and developing board games and experiencing different researching methods by practicing it. We were encouraged to be active and take all the chances that our university gives to us.
I used the opportunity to study abroad and to do practice in preferred company. For one semester, I was studying in Pecs University in Hungary. The most interesting subject was Small Business Management. I had a chance to get to know more about small businesses in Hungary and had an opportunity to prepare a plan how to improve these businesses. Moreover, last summer I did an internship in a language academy in south of Spain. It was a great opportunity to learn another language, get to know different cultures and gain valuable experience working there with different projects. There are many great opportunities studying in Mykolas Romeris University. I really enjoyed studying there. It helped me to enhance my professional skills and gain valuable experience.
