Scandinavian language specialists to be trained in Kaunas

April 13, 2016

In a development that will further boost Kaunas’ rapidly developing shared services sector, a bachelor’s programme in Scandinavian culture and languages will be launched in September at Kaunas-based Vytautas Magnus University (VMU). Approximately 50 students will be enrolled in the programme this year, with first year students able to study either Swedish or Norwegian.

Moreover, a minor programme in Scandinavian culture and languages open to all VMU students will also be launched this autumn. This will enable students majoring in fields like informatics and economics and to acquire core skills in this subject area.

Kaunas’ profile as an attractive location for international service centres has been rising in recent years. Having consistently improved its competences and developed its potential for a number of years, and having been named Emerging City of the year at this year’s CEE Shared Services and Outsourcing Awards, a major breakthrough in this sector is anticipated in Kaunas.
