One of the most essential objectives of my life was to acquire higher education in a value-added higher-education institution which is namely the Kaunas University of Technology. For this reason, I will always remember the Marketing studies in this University as an opportunity to learn from interesting, competent, inventive, and motivating lecturers. I will always remember your support and all the results achieved together...
