The graduate from the Marketing Management studies of the year 2016, Founder and Manager of UAB “Rubbee”

 

By creating new products I understood that comprehensive engineering knowledge does not ensure the success of the product on the global markets. It is necessary to understand the consumer behaviour, their motivation to buy the product and the ways how to reach new potential markets. For this reason, I chose Marketing Management study programme and I can say for sure that I made a right choice. I am now able not only to create a new product, but also to sell it!
