On the afternoon of January 20, another generation of graduates of the “Sports Business Management” study program run by the VMU Faculty of Economics and Management and the Euroleague Basketball Institute threw their academic caps into the air in the amphitheater of the Žalgiris Arena in Kaunas.

The graduates of the program were congratulated by VMU Faculty of Economics and Management Dean R. Bendaravičienė, Vice-Dean M. Račkauskas, Kaunas “Žalgiris” General Director P. Motiejūnas, as well as M. Ferreira, representative of the Euroleague Basketball Institute.

Among the master’s theses defended, it was possible to find the topics of sponsoring sports organizations, financing sports events, sustainability of sports arenas, creating mediating platforms for the sports market, and other topics. After an intensive session in Kaunas, the students who defended their master’s theses were happy with the knowledge they had acquired during their studies and the friendships they had established, and their evening was crowned by the victory of Kaunas “Žalgiris” against Belgrade “Crvena Zvezda” in a packed arena.

The unique study program, the partner of which the Euroleague Basketball Institute chose the Faculty of Economics and Management of the VMU, already has its fifth generation of graduates this year. More information about the program can be found here.
