The University of National and World Economy took part in the Second International Week at Yarmouk University in Irbid, Jordan. The event is part of the UNWE policy to position itself in the market for educational services in the Near and Middle East region.

During their visit to Ibrid Prof. Dr. Kamelia Assenova, Institutional Coordinator of the Erasmus Programme and Prof. Dr. Yanko Hristozov, Secretary General for International Cooperation, met with the President of Yarmouk University Prof. Islam Massad.

"During the discussion with him we talked about the possibilities for cooperation and collaboration between both universities", said Assoc. Prof. Assenova. According to her there are many opportunities for the development of bilateral relations between both universities. "The main direction in training will be the establishment of joint Master's and/or Bachelor's degree programmes and training of Jordanian students in Doctoral programmes of UNWE. In the scientific field we will search for the development of joint projects and research", added Assoc. Prof. Assenova.

During their meeting with the President of Yarmouk University she and Assoc. Prof. Hristozov talked about the advantages of international students to study at the UNWE.
