University of New York in Tirana Graduation Ceremony with Keynote Speaker the Ambassador of USA in Albania

On Friday, July 11, 2014 at Sheraton Hotel, the University of New York Tirana celebrated its 9th Graduation Ceremony sending tens of bachelors, masters and law students into the world.

The keynote speaker of the ceremony was H.E. Mr. Alexander A. Arvizu, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United States of America to the Republic of Albania who noted that: “I want to commend you for selecting the University of New York Tirana. I have come to learn about the education system. This university, this degree which you have earned is symbolic of excellence and commitment to improving this country and to improve you as individuals”.


The focus remained on the students and their achievements together with a few firsts; the first Law graduates after five hard years of study to be awarded the dual degrees by the University of Greenwich, London, UK and the University of New York Tirana.  The ceremony included a number of awards and honors for students and faculty.


The President of New York College Educational Group, Mr. Elias Foutsis in his closing remarks stated the successful collaboration with our key academic partners: State University of New York/ Empire State College, in USA, University of Greenwich, London, UK, Institut Universitaire Kurt Bösch – IUKB, Switzerland and Herzing University, USA. Mr. Foutsis in his warm speech told graduates that “The degree you received today will be your passport to success. Your enthusiasm, hard work and innovative ideas will be the cornerstone of your success. You must not forget that learning is like rowing against the current of a river. If you stop rowing, you find yourself carried backwards by the flow.”


University of New York Tirana is the first private university in Albania, and the only one offering authentic American and European Degrees. Dynamic teaching, active scholarship, personal attention and leadership development are key components of UNYT experience.
