The American University in Bulgaria
The American University in Bulgaria (AUBG) offers excellent U.S. education at a very competitive price, with outstanding alumni success worldwide. AUBG is accredited both in the United States by NEASC and in Europe by Bulgaria’s National Agency for Evaluation and Accreditation. As a result, upon successful completion of their studies, AUBG students obtain dual American and European diplomas. The university offers more than 10 BA programs, an Executive MBA program, and a joint venture Executive Master in Finance, Banking & Real Estate with SDA Bocconi.
Today AUBG is home to about 1,000 students from 40+ countries, and 70+ faculty from almost 20 countries. Degree programs and curriculum are regularly upgraded and modernized to respond to the ever-increasing demands of the global business environment. AUBG faculty body comprises world-renowned professors as well as experienced practitioners, who work tirelessly to create an outstanding academic experience for students.
Furthermore, AUBG provides the best modern facilities in the region. From student accommodation to the fabulous award-winning building of the America for Bulgaria Student Center, we have a world-class residential compound. All of that combined with a great location in the town of Blagoevgrad, named the ‘coolest place in southwest Bulgaria’ by The Rough Guide. It is a small, vibrant university town (20,000 of the 80,000 residents are students) within easy reach of the capital Sofia.
Approximately 5,000 alumni have graduated from AUBG over the years, with 99.8% employed or enrolled in grad school within a few months of graduation. AUBG alumni score remarkable compensation results. Approximately 20% of graduates earn more than $100,000/year and over 20% of alumni from 1995-2005 who are currently working in the U.S. earn more than $250,000/year. Furthermore, AUBG is an undisputed education leader for a sixth consecutive year according to the Bulgarian Ministry of Education national university ranking and AUBG graduates are some of the most sought-after specialists earning the highest incomes in their fields.
Undergraduate students are required to live on campus as part of the university mission. Since AUBG students come from over 40 countries, living in the halls feels like being part of a mini map of the world! In this safe, secure and comfortable environment, lifelong friendships are born amid diversity and mutual respect.
The residence halls are a smoke-free environment and disability accessible. Activity areas include aerobic rooms, music practice rooms, multipurpose rooms, billiard and ping pong areas, several television lounges, outside decks, kitchens, and cafes. All of the residence halls are secured 24 hours with a security guard. Common areas allow students to study or rest along with friends.
Resident Assistants assist fellow students with living in the dorms. They are highly-motivated, highly-trained students who will help anyone feel at home on campus. They work alongside trained counselors in the Office of Residential Life to ensure safe, pleasant and fun campus experience.
