Message from the President
Dear students, Our era is characterized by increasing globalization. Technological advances that allow for the instant transmission of information are changing communication, business, education and even lifestyles. The expansion of international trade and tourism and the worldwide media communication are also changing the way we think and live. Individuals, corporations, markets, and nation-states can reach around the world faster and more cheaply than ever before. Traditional boundaries between culture, commerce, technology, politics and the environment are rapidly disappearing. National borders are no longer barriers to learning, living, and working. People may speak different languages, eat different foods, worship in different ways but these are no longer reasons for isolation. The world today is a global village and we are all members of the same community.
We know that advanced education is the cornerstone for meeting the challenges and seizing the opportunities that globalization presents. We also know that academic studies and a degree from a prestigious university are prerequisites for a successful career in a highly competitive environment. At the University of New York in Prague we have applied the same successful model of academic collaboration with well-known international universities such as those being used at New York College in Athens which is considered among the best colleges in Greece.
Our aim is to expand your global horizons and provide you with the knowledge, experience and multi-cultural perspective that will allow you to explore, learn, question, create and thrive as productive members of a global society in your chosen careers.
UNYP prides itself in offering you a multiplicity of academic choices and opportunities for you to study with a distinguished international faculty dedicated to an interactive teaching style. UNYP maintains high expectations for its students and high academic standards in the classroom. We are committed to giving you the personal attention, support and care necessary for you to be successful.
I welcome you to UNYP and wish you all the best in your academic studies as well as in your personal lives and future professional careers.
President, University of New York in Prague and New York College Educational Group
