"The fact that five Lithuanian universities are already ranked in the global ranking shows that Lithuanian higher education is able to solve current problems and overcome new challenges."

We are pleased with the recognition of both the international community and the achievements of the MRU academic community, ” said MRU Vice-Rector for Academic Affairs Prof. Regina Valutytė.
