    "You are the generation that so briskly absorbs new technologies, new information, new challenges, even the new absurdities of the time and life that accompany us. So, we should think about the new which we carry within ourselves and its capabilities, " said in her opening speech to the graduates, the President of Varna Free University, Prof. Anna Nedyalkova , D.Sc.



    "I would like to say that we expect from now on at least two things. On the one hand you can be the crown jewel of Varna Free University that will spread its fame of preparing quality and thinking people able to cope with the challenges of the times in which we live. On the other hand, we expect more great things from you - to deal with the challenges of the time, to change the life and the environment in which you live, to stand against our generation and change the way of thinking and decision-making ... It turned out that the elements of chaos in the time we live in are more than the elements of order and predictability of this world, but the chaos has one big advantage - it gives freedom of choice. It gives multiple options of choice and you can think, criticize, argue, deny and find your choice. There are two conditions to do so. One of them is to remember that the choice goes along with responsibility, and the other - do not forget that the triad "person - society - technology" leads to development only while they are in balance, in harmony and they respect the highest being on this planet – the human being," pointed out Prof. Nedyalkova.




She awarded the diplomas and certificates of achievement to the Master’s graduates with the highest results.

    "I take it as extreme pride and honour that I can express words of gratitude, appreciation, to convey the sense of pride that the entire academic community feels at this moment," said Assoc. Prof. Eleonora Tankova, PhD - Dean of the Faculty of International Economics and Administration. She awarded the diplomas to the Bachelor’s graduates with highest result and  

congratulated them for their success and achievements.

Prof. Tankova.

Good luck to the graduates also wished the special guests at the official promotion Assoc. Prof. Vasil Donev – Executive Director of Sirma Solutions AD and the managing partner of  Active  - Simeon Simov.
