It`s a great pleasure for me to congratulate the sixth alumni from the Joint Master`s Degree Programme between the UNWE and Nottingham Trent University, outlined in his greeting speech the Rector Prof. Stattev. He reminded about the beginning of the Programme opened eight years ago pointing out that the seventh alumni had begun its semester at the British university and the admission of the eight alumni had been implemented. The interest in this exclusively important Programme is very high as for its graduated as for the lecturers and our university, outlined the Rector.

The Rector is greeting the Masters of Science.

Today you will obtain the consecutive and may be the most important certificate in your life, said the Rector and appealed to the Masters of Science not to forget the university they had graduated from. The UNWE and Nottingham Trent University have a glorious history and traditions and they both are exclusively respected educational institutions. Let they both be always in your hearts because you have all the reasons to be proud of being their alumni, said Prof. Stattev. We have to continue the traditions proving that as it has always been since the establishment of our university 94 years ago as also in the future our university will continue to strengthen its position of a generator of the managerial, state and business elite of the country, emphasized the Rector.

I would like to congratulate you on behalf of all my colleagues from the Nottingham Trent University, addressed to the graduates Prof. Nigel Healey. The world has changed a lot for the last 50 years and it will continue to change also in the next half a century. Who would predict the Internet, smart phones and the membership of Bulgaria in the European Union 50 years ago! So the best way of investing in your future is to invest in your education, said explicitly Prof. Healey. Your education has implemented in Sofia and in Nottingham and thus you have known different countries, cultures and traditions. You have chosen the right way and have to continue learning, researching and going forward. We are expecting for you because you are always welcome in England, said the Vice Rector.
