“Who else could tell us – owners and employees, investors and creditors, state and citizens – how things are, if not accounting specialists? And who could confirm that what is said by accounting specialists is true, if not auditors? Both of these professions are vertebra of market economy, they provide the most significant resource – information, required for decision-making.” – Deputy Chairwoman of the Board of the “Bank of Lithuania” Ingrida Šimonytė.

Good and competent lecturers, including the ones from the business world, provided us with useful advices, based on science as well as on their life experience.
