Grad Student Ramanauskas Discussed Starting Up a Business on Radio Show

aistisramanauskas August 22nd, MRU graduate student and businessman Aistis Ramanauskas took part in a roundtable discussion on the "Žinių radijas" radio programme, "Atviras Pokalbis" (Frank Discussion). He discussed salaries and why many university graduates refused to work for a minimum wage and why he decided to start up his own business.

He said that he began his own business in order to earn more money, which he now does.

The radio programme discussed the trend of university graduates refusing to work for a salary of less than Litai 3,500 (Euros 1,013.67) per month.

Ramanauskas is working towards his Master's Degree in EU Law and Administration at Mykolas Romeris University.

In December of 2012 he was awarded the Petras Vileišis Prize by Lithuania's Confederation of Industrialists (LPK) for leadership, fostering student cooperation and volunteer activities in a ceremony held at the Vilnius Philharmonic Concert Hall.
