DSC_2953+April 16 a special guest lecture on the topic of “The Process of Globalization: its fundamentals, factors and aspects” by the Senator and former Ambassador to the USA Sodyq Safaev was held at Westminster International University in Tashkent (WIUT).

During the lecture Sodyq Safaev shared his knowledge on practical issues of globalization, international relations, economics and politics. In his view “the term ‘Globalization’ was coined to designate a new, unfolding phenomenon – the process of transnational merging of economic and financial markets. Internationalization of the world economy and finance has been accompanied and preordained by globalization in the spheres of information and communication, geopolitics and geo-economics. Now it is commonly recognized that the process of globalization forms the general context of the contemporary world. Without understanding its essence, aspects and factors, one cannot comprehend financial markets and economic tendencies in single companies, regions, and the world”.

The University is proud of its students. It is mistakenly spread in the external community outside the University that to study at WIUT is “so easy” as “they (WIUT students) start the academic year in October and finish it in late April”. However, those who work and study here know how far this is from the truth. Because the teaching and learning philosophy of the university is heavily rooted in the independent study principle, students spend hours and hours to work on their own and this is much more difficult than just attending the lectures and “doing what you are told to do”. The responsibility of what is learnt and how it is learnt is all on students.

The ones listed above have done a great job of providing evidence of their maturity and seriousness toward their study. No doubt these students will become change agents in many companies in our country after their graduation.

We wish you success and academic prosperity! You are a real value of this university. A great appreciation is also conveyed to your parents, those who support you in your students’ life.

Elena Volkova
Dean of Teaching and Learning, WIUT
