DepartmentAdministration and Management



The Department “Administration and Management” was created by a decision of the Academic Council of New Bulgarian University on 23.02.2016 as a successor of “Business Administration” and “Public Administration" departments. The department offers specialized research and teaching in business economics, public administration and tourism. We have accreditation in two professional fields: “3.7. Administration and Management” and “3.9. Tourism”.


We conduct research on corporate governance, management and innovation, public policy and administration, tourism and hospitality, and European transport policy, institutions and development trends in the EU member states. Our research is based on modern theories of institutional economics and management and has the ambition to create scientific products in the field of business and public policy related to the specific Bulgarian institutional environment and structure.


Furthermore, in cooperation with world-renowned university centers, we study and teach corporate social responsibility, social and environmental accounting and sustainable development reporting, and decision-making mechanisms based on corporate practices in industry and tourism.


The Department has established several permanent seminars: "Management and Leadership" with the participation of students and PhD students; the interdisciplinary seminar "Modern Economics and Business", the seminar "Innovative Solutions in Tourism" within the framework of Symposium "Science without Frontiers"; the Student Seminar "New Realities in Tourism" within the framework of the Student’s Scientific forum  "New Realities in Economy and the Role of Modern Science", jointly with the Bulgarian Chamber of Education, Science and Culture.


The Department “Administration and Management” publishes Yearbook including studies of faculty and PhD students, scientific research reports,  project reports and student works.

We offer Erasmus student exchange with the following universities: Alma Mater Studio - Bologna, including his affiliates in Rimini and Forli; Aveiro - Portugal; Ludwigshafen - Germany; Doggush - Turkey and others. Students enrolled in Erasmus receive credit transfer and accreditation for the courses successfully completed abroad.
