“program that aims at academic excellence and self-development”

"I was truly lucky to have been in the MA International Management program for its effectiveness and efficiency. It is a capacity-building program that aims at academic excellence and self-development, along with a broader understanding of organizational work culture.

This MA IM program has enabled me to perform better academic research. It has helped me with critical thinking and academic writing. This program has afforded me the opportunity to explore leadership in organizations, organizational change, organizational behavior, and human resources management and development. I had the great opportunity to meet, work and study with multicultural students, professors, and LCC staff members from different continents. This also contributed to great self-development and awareness.

After graduating and applying for numerous jobs, it was an honor to include LCC in my curriculum vitae (CV). Proudly, I am now working for a UN agency. The MA IM program is reputable and helps give employment opportunities, even within a short period of time after graduation.

I would definitely recommend this program to others for its unique outcomes. With a Master’s degree in International Management, you are able to apply for various jobs including but not limited to leadership, management, development, humanitarian aid, and organizational management. Also, it is a great opportunity to explore and research interesting topics to generate new ideas and solutions.

Last note to future students in the MA IM program, be sure to follow up continuously in and out of class and never hesitate to ask questions."

“An exciting opportunity”

"The MA IM program at LCC provides an exciting opportunity for students to reach a higher level of knowledge relating to key business and management strategies that emphasize topics such as innovation, social impact, global issues in a world that is constantly changing. The MA IM program at LCC is unique in that it relates these concepts to global and domestic businesses of any type while maintaining a Christian perspective that respects all societies. The Thesis I and Thesis II courses that I teach allow students to put their knowledge into action by researching and analyzing a topic that is of specific interest to the student, and that could add new ideas to enhance business and management practices. It is exciting for me to guide students through Thesis I and II, and witness the results of their growth at LCC."

According to Lithuanian law, amounts paid for studies (when higher education and/or qualification is obtained upon graduation, as well as doctoral studies and art post-graduate studies) by residents of Lithuania can be deducted from the taxable income and thus decrease the income tax for residents. If a person whose studies are being paid for is under 26 years of age and tuition cannot be deducted from his/her taxable income, the tuition can be deducted from the taxable income of one of his/her parents/foster parents. If a loan is taken to pay for studies, the amounts that can be deducted are the amounts repaid. The tuition is to be deducted in the annual income declaration.

The highest net benefit of this deduction is income tax savings amounting to 15% of tuition. For more information on Income tax benefit visit
