About VU Kaunas Faculty
The VU Kaunas Faculty has been representing Vilnius University in the Kaunas region since 1964. Unique in its history and present, the Kaunas Faculty is located at the centre of the Kaunas old town, in the historic XVI-XVII century buildings of Muitinės street, thus resembling the ensemble of the old Vilnius University.
VU KnF is a multidisciplinary Faculty that brings together researchers and lecturers of the Humanities, IT and Social Sciences. The faculty encompasses studies at all three levels (bachelor’s, master’s, and PhD studies).
We attract not only local, but also international students, thus cooperation ties are forged across the globe. This multicultural atmosphere helps grow an international alumni community, who continue to be involved in the study process, maintain relations with the community by sharing their professional experience and practical knowledge, gladly participate in cultural activities, and support new initiatives of the Faculty.
KnF researchers are keen on sharing their skills and knowledge with the society: they offer a variety of trainings and services for companies and state institutions (e.g., cyber security, MarTech), and they welcome school pupils for a first-hand experience at university studies by engaging them in practical activities (e.g., audiovisual translation workshops).
Endowment Capital Investment Management
VU Kaunas Faculty Endowment Sub-fund is a sustainable and intelligent finance management model, where the received funds are invested in various asset classes and the return on investment is allocated annually to the needs of the center.
VU Foundation’s investment strategy is in line with the best international practice: diversified financial instruments; risk management; investing in a global market. The Sub-fund’s capital is invested together with the main Fund’s capital. An allocation ratio of 2.5% (or individually agreed) is used to calculate the annual payout to VU Kaunas Faculty. The part of the investment gain that exceeds the payout is reinvested.
Because of reinvesting, the value of the Sub-fund will grow exponentially over the years. Check out the simulation below on how the initial capital of EUR 100,000 will grow over the next 100 years and what return it will bring to VU Kaunas Faculty.
Allocating The Return On Investment
The investment returns of the VU Kaunas Faculty Endowment Sub-Fund will be used to establish student scholarships. In the future, the return on investment will enable the Faculty to attract talented scientists, teachers and researchers.
