Nowadays we all witness the world remarkable with many challenges and diverse possibilities. High quality education and research, this is what we at International Black Sea University are dedicated to. We do understand modern trends in global and regional politics, economics, culture, society and, of course, education. Among these trends, most valuable ones are wider democracy, more focus on societal needs, more involvement and participation of the society in the decision-making process directly affecting them.

Current situation in the world vividly showed the urgency and actuality of these issues; Strong educational systems can play a pivotal role in attaining the above mentioned goals. Thus, the role of education cannot be underestimated in the modern, knowledge-based society. It is not a novelty if we say that majority of modern leading states managed to build their statehood on the moment they succeeded in the formation of efficient systems of education.

Today, Georgia is facing the same crucial moment as it is on its way to building a modern democratic state; and the Georgian universities have to assume the responsibility to support the state in its efforts. This particular task is in line with our university vision and mission. We are among top Georgian universities and this is because of the quality of teaching and learning, our efforts to support students and academic staff in academic initiatives, our attempts to support students’ employment, and of course, our interest to supporting academic freedom and research.
