The training programmes at the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration are of a distinctly interdisciplinary nature, combining economic, financial, managerial and legal disciplines and the so-called STEM disciplines - applied mathematics, statistics, computer and information technologies. The balanced teaching of classical and modern theoretical and empirical models and concepts develops practically-oriented skills based on solid theoretical knowledge and prepares students for effective decision-making through the use of modern methods and tools, including work with real data and the application of modern analytical software applications. This training corresponds to the needs of the labor market in Bulgaria and the European Union for applied specialists and managers in business, finance and government and is a prerequisite for the successful implementation of our graduates in the dynamically changing market environment in the country and abroad. The focus of the training of students in the faculty is the development of entrepreneurial skills to start their own business (including social enterprise and green/circular business), eventually inherit a family business and develop their own innovative and technological products in the field of economics, finance and business.
