CEFER, in collaboration with Vilnius University and the Applied Macroeconomic Research Division of the Bank of Lithuania (TMTS), has developed a Bachelor’s degree programme in Quantitative Economics, the first in Lithuania to combine mathematics, statistics, data science and economics.

The English-taught programme led by CEFER and TMTS researchers as well as lecturers from the Faculty of Economics and Mathematics at Vilnius University offers you an international experience in Lithuania.

The study programme, reflecting the best practices of world-class universities, provides students with experience in applying quantitative and modeling methods as well as modern economic problem-solving skills, which will be highly valuable in the job market both now and especially in the future.

Having completed this study programme, students will have the opportunity to continue their studies in top-level economics master's programmes, pursue careers in data analytics, business and finance industries, or work in state and international institutions.

The programme aims to attract young talents and encourage them to stay in Lithuania, while also preparing a new generation of analysts capable of combining economic intuition, data analysis, mathematical and computer modelling, thereby contributing to the increase in the supply of highly-skilled professionals.
