History indicates that over the years this country’s educational environment has been impacted on by a number of positive and negative factors, yet this University has withstood the test of time and it has been developing to become a primary pillar of economics training in Bulgaria.
The University of Economics – Varna has helped thousands of its alumni launch their careers, including ministers (of finance, of education) and deputy ministers; National Bank governors; ambassadors, attachés, honorary consuls, senior executives and many other professionals (in economics, management, tourism, and IT)…
Professional training is undoubtedly a result of the commitment of generations of talented professors and the hard work of a multitude of admin officers, all dedicating their energy and investing their effort, intellect and time in training professionals who share expertise, creativity and flexibility. This legacy calls for our gratitude, respect and appreciation of our predecessors’ achievements, and it instills in us a deep sense of responsibility to our communities. It is a great privilege and pleasure to celebrate this day together!
