“Edward Bernays University College is truly a unique higher education institution that offers the most innovative study programmes in communications and tourism in this part of Europe, and I would venture to say in an even broader area. However, Bernays is not a model to stop there. As a guiding light I would like to mention the famous saying “Panta rhei”(everything is constantly changing) because Bernays is still continuing to grow and is continuously developing its innovation, mainting in its focus its students, providing them with increasing possibilities.”
