VUM has rich experience in welcoming students for different Summer programmes. Last year we received students from diverse countries, including China, Vietnam, Malaysia, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Moldova, Ukraine, Armenia and Georgia. The lectures, all focused on different aspects of business and management, were taught by some of the head academics of VUM, as well as by some guest lecturers.

While the academic part of the study is our point of focus, we at VUM do not forget to add the fun part of the student life. The student experience is enriched by different events, parties and get-togethers. Here we welcome people from all continents, thus you will be able to make lifelong friendships all around the world. All of this is topped with numerous opportunities for touristic trips within Bulgaria and the neighboring countries. Last Summer the students had the opportunity to make tours around Bulgaria and to visit landmarks in Varna, Burgas, Sofia, Plovdiv, Veliko Tarnovo, Balchik, and they recorded their impressions in a specifically created blog.
