AUBG Scores an All-Time Record in the 2018 Bulgarian University RankingsDecember 20, 2018
AUBG marks the end of 2018 with an unparalleled success: the university scored an all-time high in the eighth edition of the Bulgarian University Rankings. The results released on Dec. 20 show all five evaluated AUBG disciplines at leading positions, with four earning the No. 1 spot.
The Bulgarian University Ranking System has been developed to support education service users in their choice of university. The 2018 updated version of the system contains information on 51 universities in Bulgaria that offer education in a variety of majors grouped into 52 professional fields.
AUBG’s Business Administration, Economics, Journalism and Mass Communication, and Political Science and International Relations programs have been rated as the best in the country. Computer Science earned a second place among 12 schools across Bulgaria, second only to the competitive program of Sofia University.
“While we have always done exceptionally well, this is the best result for AUBG since the ranking system exists,” said AUBG President Steven Sullivan. “I would like to take a moment to congratulate our distinguished faculty for the hard work and dedication that had made this success possible.”
AUBG is an indisputable leader based on several important indicators as well. The university scores 0 percent of alumni unemployment in three of the disciplines and the highest average salaries in the country in four of the disciplines.
AUBG is also first in all five disciplines in terms of prestige, welfare, and administrative services, career relevance to the labor market and regional importance.
