Annual Student Conference in International Business and Relations

An important place in the life of the department is occupied by the work with the students. It dates back to the first years of its establishment as a result of the imposed institutional policy and is reflected in the annual scientific-practical conference for students and doctoral students in the specialty "International Economic Relations".

The beginning of the student conference was set in 1996 on the idea and organization of Head Assistant Simeon Momchev, PhD and Prof.Ivan Stoykov, DSc. Initially, only third-year students majoring in International Economic Relations at Tsenov Academy of Economics were allowed to participate, and the research was focused on international investments.

Over the years, the conference has established itself as a place for scientific expression of students and doctoral students outside the classroom and provides an opportunity to break the formal relationship between lecturer and student. Gradually, the topic has expanded to cover all aspects of international economic relations.

Going beyond the Academy of Economics and the inclusion in 2014 of the department of the same name at University of Economics - Varna, and in 2015 of the Department of Economics at the University of Ruse "Angel Kanchev", gives students and teachers the opportunity to exchange experiences and ideas. The presented papers are published on the conference website www.mioconference.eu in an electronic edition with ISBN number.

I face many horizons and opportunities for great career development, but I would not have been able to get here if the professors and colleagues in the Department of IER had not opened my eyes to the world and how it works globally. To this day, I think I have come across the best people in all aspects, and I would not change anything in my choices so far.
