On December 13, 2021, the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration of Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski” and representatives of WikiRate signed a partnership agreement.


“I am pleased to welcome the representatives of WikiRate, as well as the Dean of the Faculty of Economics Assoc. Prof. Atanas Georgiev. However, the real pleasure is that I am not the only one to welcome you, but also over 35 of the students at the master’s program “Responsible and Sustainable Governance”. Our partnership with WikiRate is something we've been looking forward to. This has to do with both education and our research work”, said at the beginning of the online meeting Ch. Assist. Prof. Marina Stefanova, PhD, Head of the master's program “Responsible and Sustainable Governance”.


The Dean of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration Assoc. Prof. Dr. Atanas Georgiev welcomed the representatives of the company and the students from the master's program and said: “The Faculty is a leader in the structure of Sofia University in terms of efforts in the field of sustainable development. We prove this with the master’s program, which has over 70 students who want to know and be able to do more in the field of SDG. We strarted this program with key programs from business and professionals who are part of this field. As part of the current effort, we want to be recognized internationally with the program, for which I am very happy. This will allow students to work with data and analyze it, and also have the opportunity to create further research. This is one of our key partnerships this year. WikiRate representatives made it possible!".


Laureen van Breen, Managing Director of WikiRate: “The pleasure is ours! We are very inspired, and we can't wait for our future work together. We often hear about the problem of climate change, but the problems are far beyond that are not the only ones. We wanted to help corporations and businesses focus on that by creating transparency and seeing what's really going on. There are many sites and platforms that we can access, read, compare the turnover, but not when we want to see what’s happening in the direction of environmental and social. We have access to such a large amount of information that we decided to make it clearer and more concise, so we created WikiRate".
