Varna University of Management (VUM)
Dear MBA students,
I am happy to greet you and welcome you as members of the academic community of VUM. We are proud of our reputation for high quality that we have achieved with our partners: Cardiff Metropolitan University. But we are most of all proud of our students and alumni who achieve high academic results and have successful professional careers. Many of our graduates have been promoted to leading positions at their companies or have found new employment at fast-growing firms and renowned multinationals in this country and abroad. Despite the global economic crisis, or perhaps precisely because of it, well-educated and skilled young professionals are in high demand all over the world and companies compete for their talents. Our mission is to develop these talents and give our graduates a head start in their quest for attractive opportunities in the international job market.
According to the official ranking of the Bulgarian universities VUM ranks among the 10 best universities in Bulgaria in each of the academic fields in which we offer education. VUM is accredited by the Bulgarian Accreditation Agency and by the British Accreditation Council. It is also a member of AACSB. These distinctions guarantee the quality of the education that you will obtain at VUM. But your experience here will not be limited to the acquisition of professional knowledge and skills. Your new acquaintances can help you build a network that can provide valuable support in your career. You will also make friends and have some unforgettable experiences with them.
Our university is staffed by a team of enthusiastic and caring professionals. They will strive to make your time at VUM worthwhile and successful. If you can match this by fully participating in the academic process and giving your best, I am sure that your stay at VUM will be enjoyable and rewarding.
