For the second consecutive year, according to the evaluation of the Ministry of Education and Science /MES/, the Rector of the University of National and World Economy and Secretary General of the Council of Rectors in the Republic of Bulgaria Prof. Dr. Dimitar Dimitrov is among the excellent rectors. The Ministry of Education, in the person of the Minister Prof. Sasho Penov, evaluated the annual implementation of his management contract, according to the policies set by the MES, with 3.95 of maximum possible score of 4.00. Thus, the success rate of the implementation of the management objectives, tasks and targets set in the contract was assessed with 99.84%.

The Report on the implementation of the policy for the UNWE development in the period 1 October 2021 – 30 September 2022 was evaluated with the maximum score of 4.00 for five of the six policies approved by the Minister of Education and Science: 1. Relevance, consistency, integrity of the acquired knowledge and skills; 2. Enhancement of the quality of educational programmes through the use of educational forms, methods and technologies in compliance with the characteristics of the educated generation of students; 3. Connectivity and partnership; 5. Attracting and retaining young lecturers; 6. Public engagements of national significance.

The University was evaluated with less than the maximum permissible score in indicator 4 - Development of Scientific Activity. In this section, the project activity development, including participation in projects funded by the national programmes as well as in projects funded by the international programmes, was assessed with 4.00. Evaluating the maximum creation of a mechanism for linking the scientific activity with the system of remuneration, the average number of publications per person of the UNWE academic staff was evaluated with 3.67.

"We have undertaken a number of measures to increase the quality of publication activity, including a new grant scheme, new rules for material incentives, updated rules for the University Competition for Research Projects 2023. The incorporated system for stimulation of scientific activity and publication activity already gave results, but it is a process that will take time to make our University's scientific potential even more visible", said Prof. Dimitrov and added that every second prospective student in Economics in Bulgaria has evaluated the UNWE by choosing it for place to educate, "and it is a huge recognition for us as lecturers and scientists".

"I would like to sincerely express my thankfulness to the lecturers, young scientists, students, employees and our business partners", declares his gratitude Prof. Dimitrov.
