Pre-master courses

Pre-master courses are organized to prepare a student for upcoming Master studies in Faculty of Economics, Vilnius University. Our programmes have been a great success, and we are attracting an increasing number of students of diverse backgrounds from all over the world. The majority of those applying to the programmes are graduates of business administration or economics undergraduate programmes, but we also receive a large number of requests from those who have no background in business administration or economics. We are prepared to meet their needs.


The Pre-Master courses are designed for students who already have a bachelor's degree and need extra background in economics and business before proceeding to more advanced, master level courses. Pre-master courses are taught in English language. They will make the transition to more rigorous master’s level courses easier for students who did not have background in economics and business.

Upon the successful completion of the courses students will obtain a possibility to apply for international master programmes at the Faculty of Economics.

Pre-master courses will take place in the spring semester, prior to the Master's semester. We offer 5 courses (Total 30 ECTS) in the most relevant aspects of  economics and business, such as management, marketing, economics and accounting. Subjects will be chosen for each student separatelly regarding his/her wishes of Master programme.

Lectures will begin in February and will last for one semester. Students will receive a certificate indicating that they have earned the credits for their completed coursework.



International students will apply to be Free-moving student. In this case a student will be able to get student status and proper visa.
