AUBG Scores Traditionally High in the Bulgarian University Rankings 2020
Once again, all five evaluated disciplines at AUBG hold leading positions in the Bulgarian University Rankings. Business Administration is ranked number one in the country and Journalism and Mass Communication shares first place with Sofia University. Politics & International Relations and European Studies, Computer Science & Information Systems and Economics* take second place.
“I would like to thank our exceptional professors here at AUBG who make this success possible every year,” said AUBG Interim President Dr. David Evans. “Especially during these difficult past few months, you proved that – beyond your in-depth expertise and knowledge in your fields – you also have unwavering dedication to your students and great commitment to AUBG.”
He also acknowledged the AUBG students for their hard work and dedication in and outside the classroom and the staff members “who went out of their way in 2020 to ensure a smooth and uninterrupted academic process during unprecedented and difficult times.”
The rankings that were released Nov. 12 also show that AUBG reserves the first spot in the “Prestige” and “Highest income & lowest unemployment rate” indicators for four out of the five disciplines (BUS, ECO, POS and JMC) and is number one in “Welfare and administrative services” in all five disciplines.
