MAIRIS (Latvia)


NAME: Mairis Gailums

PROGRAMME: Business Administration

Why did you choose to study this programme?

The main reason was my passion about entrepreneurship already in my high school in Latvia. I was sure about the direction of my BA studies, namely business or finance, and BBA programme at the University of Tartu offered a great opportunity to cover the essence of business management and finance at the same time in an international environment.

Why Estonia?

First of all, the University of Tartu is the highest ranked university in the Baltic States and it is a pretty good reason to come over. Second, Tartu is only 256 km away from my hometown, therefore I like the idea of studying abroad, but at the same time being close to home. Worth to mention that Estonia (especially Tartu) right now is very start-up oriented country, which makes it very attractive for business-minded people.
