"From the heart of Vilnius, ISM offers unique opportunities for the development of international business and communication skills. Our local and international lecturers help our students prepare for their international careers through collaboration with like-minded peers. Such connections are built while studying in Lithuania and internationally, during their exchange studies abroad. Moreover, students have the chance to explore real business challenges and find solutions through close collaboration with our business partners."
#SignatureCourses
In a shared and globalized world, knowledge about and tolerance of cultural differences seem to be insufficient to successfully cooperate, negotiate, and create value across borders. The willingness and ability to collaborate and develop new commonalities across cultures will therefore be an important prerequisite for successful global leadership, value creation and cooperation. In this spirit, the International Negotiations course aims to provide students with useful theories, models, perspectives and, most importantly, applicable tools for working, collaborating and negotiating in times of global interconnectedness.
This course provides students with a strategic perspective of the role of marketing in international context. It proposes a series of effective solutions to strengthen a brand's competitiveness at global scale. Special emphasis is put on the application of emerging marketing paradigms to enrich lifestyles of consumers from all over the world.
In the Business Research Methods course, students learn how to do research by conducting research projects on tasks provided by ISM partner companies. The research topics are relevant to young people, from their expectations towards employers to website user experience. Student teams work on answering the provided research questions through analyzing academic literature, collecting data via interviews, surveys, and observational studies, analyzing the findings, and then present the results to companies' representatives.

Studying international business and communication allowed me to understand the essential business principles needed to work in an international environment. Knowledge of economics and finance contributed to my broader understanding of the business world, and knowledge of international negotiations, intercultural communication and entrepreneurship led me to the development of sustainable science partnership strategies.

FAQs
Admission to the ISM University of Management and Economics takes place in three stages.
• Pre-admission takes place from 1 January to 30 April. In this way you can reserve a spot at ISM University with a higher chance of receiving a scholarship and other additional benefits.
• ISM’s internal admission takes place from 1 May to mid-August, during which you must submit an application in the ISM admission system, thus reserving a place at the university.
• From 1 June to the end of August, you can apply through general admissions to higher education institutions (LAMA BPO).
You can learn more about ISM admissions here: https://www.ism.lt/priemimas/.
ISM pre-admission is a unique opportunity to reserve a study place even before the exams and to have a greater chance of receiving 25%, 75% and 100% ISM scholarships. ISM pre-admission is special in that it evaluates not only academic achievements, but also the applicant’s motivation and extracurricular activities.
The following exams are required for admission to any ISM BA programme:
• Mathematics (0.4 points)
• Lithuanian language (0.2 points)
• History/Geography/IT/Foreign language/Economy (0.2 points)
• Any subject not overlapping with other subjects or annual grade (0.2 points)
State scholarship (vnf/st) is a place with a study scholarship not funded by the state. Students who have passed the exams with the highest scores can receive this scholarship during general admission. At the time of 2023 admission, the state scholarship amounted to EUR 2865 per year. In order to get a vnf/st study place, this must be selected in the general admission (LAMA BPO) system. It is important to mention that the ISM 75% and “100 Talents” scholarships comprise a state scholarship (vnf/st) and an additional scholarship awarded by the ISM University. Therefore, if a vnf/st study place is not selected during the general admission, applicants will lose the opportunity to receive both the 75% and “100 Talents” scholarships. If you have a sufficient score and want to secure the opportunity to enter ISM University, we recommend that you choose a vnf/st study place in the LAMA BPO system as the first priority, and a vnf (non-state funded) study place as the second priority.
Applicants who completed their secondary education in foreign educational institutions should apply to the Study Quality Assessment Centre (hereinafter SKVC) regarding the recognition of the education received in foreign institutions and the determination of subject equivalents. If the diploma is recognised and after receiving the subject equivalents the applicant collects a minimum competitive score of 5.4, the applicant has the right to study at ISM University.
If you studied at another Lithuanian or foreign university and want to continue your studies at ISM University, please contact us by e-mail at bs@ism.lt. Admission to higher academic years takes place twice a year. Admission to the autumn semester studies is carried out from 1 July until 15 August. Admission to spring semester studies is carried out from 1 January until 15 January. Together with the application, please submit an academic certificate stating the subjects you studied at the university. Since each case is individual, we will personally provide you with the exact information.
The Career Centre operating at ISM helps each student take firm steps towards a fulfilling career. Meetings with business representatives are organised in cooperation with the best Lithuanian and international companies, and during individual consultations assistance is provided in choosing an organisation according to each student’s personal aspirations, needs and strengths. Every year we can offer students as many as 300 internships in the largest international companies. More information about the ISM Career Centre here: https://www.ism.lt/karjeros-centras/.
Most of the lectures at ISM University are held in English, with the exception of the Business Management and Marketing and Economics and Data Analytics programmes, where part of the lectures are also held in Lithuanian.
We do not offer remedial studies, but we can offer additional studies, upon completion of which you can enrol in MA studies. For detailed information contact us at bs@ism.lt.
