Testimonials

Saulius Drasutis, CFA

Saulius Drasutis, CFA

Head of Branch Network Lithuania, AB Swedbank

 

During the entire period of work at Swedbank, AB, I had to accept several masters of KTU Finance Program. I highly value the graduates of this master's program both as potential candidates for vacancies offered at the bank and as current colleagues. Typically, participants in this program have a very deep theoretical knowledge of both corporate financial reporting, cash flow, and the ability to analyse corporate financial trends and assess potential risk factors. I believe this is due to good basic skills in mathematics, probability theory and financial fundamentals acquired in undergraduate studies and the further development of these skills during master’s studies. I highly appreciate the individual qualities of these graduates - honesty, consistency, the desire to constantly improve, as well as the qualities of teamwork that are created during the preparation of joint team projects.

The main factor that creates the value of this study program is the versatility of the financial knowledge acquired. Deepening into the financial characteristics of banks, credit unions, insurance companies and businesses forms a broad financial approach and perception, while opening up relevant internships and career opportunities. Practical tasks develop the ability to think analytically, interpret and apply the available information to make financial institution / business management decisions.
