On June, 25th 2015 the University of Economics - Varna (UE-Varna) successfully signed a contract with Nottingham Trent University (NTU), UK for the delivery of a Joint Master (MSc) programme in International Business and Management. Business contacts with NTU date back to the mid 90's, but the real preparation for the official validation by the Accreditation Commission of Nottingham Business School has commenced almost two years ago. Last year, after the official arrangements the contract was signed by both parties (UE -Varna and NTU). The first cohort of students has successfully completed their first year and continues their studies at NTU.

NTU is purported to be the "greenest" university in the UK and has been ranked among the 10 most modern educational institutions in Britain.

The curriculum and teaching & learning methods are designed to be entirely comparable to those employed at NTU. The study duration is 2 years (4 semesters). The first two semesters are delivered in Varna by special teaching teams approved by the Accreditation Commission of NTU during the validation event last week. Upon successful completion of this period, students proceed to their 3rd semester at NTU in the UK (lasting for approximately 4 months). The last semester is held at UE-Varna and is devoted to the preparation of a Master Dissertation under the supervision of specially appointed tutors. The dissertation defense event will be attended by external examiners and business representatives.

Successful graduates will receive one joint Master degree certificate signed by both Rectors that will be issued by NTU and additionally Master degree awarded from UE-Varna.

The quality of educational standards under the programme will be maintained to the highest measures, while the tuition fee will remain at considerably lower rates compared to the actual cost of studying at NTU thanks to this strategic contract. For the academic year 2016/2017, the first semester tuition fee for all students enrolled in the programme will be reduced by 30%.

Successful applicants hold a bachelor or master degree according to the Bulgarian evaluation system and have good command of English language (minimum B1 proficiency level or equivalent).
