Complete your higher education at home or abroad, but then apply your knowledge in Bulgaria, because the development of any country is based on young and educated people.

He pointed out that the opportunities for realization in the country are really many, and the developed technologies give a chance to work in a foreign company, even from home. “Today’s world is based on the knowledge economy.
