It is time that Czech Republic realizes there is a strong difference between higher-educational institutions in the private sector, they are not all equal in quality and UNYP has spent 20 years delivering excellence in the Czech Republic and internationally. It is proven in its students and especially their Alumni,” commented Mrs. Anderová.
“It is not every day that someone with the experience and network of Mrs. Anderová is available, we knew immediately that she would be the perfect person to help us with our vision of bringing the very best of private English language higher-education to the central and eastern European regions and to help communicate our vision in the Czech Republic,” said Mr. Elias Foutsis, President of the University of New York in Prague.
