We welcome you to the largest multinational educational group in the Balkans. The New York College Educational Group was established in Athens in 1989, offering under exclusivity in Greece the undergraduate programs of the Empire State College of the State University of New York, the largest state university in the USA. NYC’s vision is to offer international university education of high quality, which prepares graduates to respond successfully to the needs of the local and international market. Based on this vision, the Group developed as no other with respect to the number of academic cooperations and its expansion in the wider region of Eastern Europe. In 1998, the University of New York in Prague (UNYP) was established and joined the NYC Educational Group. UNYP was recognized and approved as an institution of higher learning by the Ministry of Education of the Czech Republic and offers study programs and degrees fully recognized by all the accreditation and recognition authorities world wide. Each year, students from the Czech Republic as well as from many other countries select UNYP to study for undergraduate or postgraduate programs. In 2001, New York College Thessaloniki was established in the heart of the city, offering a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate programs, covering the needs in education in Northern Greece. At the same time, the University of New York in Tirana becomes the second university of the Group. Having secured the accreditation of the local Ministry of Education, the University of New York in Tirana (UNYT) satisfied the immense need for quality higher education in Albania, offering Bachelor degrees in various subject areas. Today UNYT is the top choice not only for university education, but also for executive training in the neighboring country.
