The secret of success is 10% theoretical knowledge and 90% hard work and experience“, commented Maxim Behar, CEO of М3 CollegeandM3 CommunicationsGroup, Inc. – the leading PRcompany in Bulgaria. In his opinion,PRis the most dynamically developing business in the world and that is why education has to adapt to these changes.

According to the journalist and communications expert Ani Tsolova, the high-quality education needs a good theoretical foundation, but also much more focus on practice.“Theory is the cake layer, but practice is the cream. I learnt to be a journalist in my practice, but I really rely a lot on my higher education, too”, commented Tsolova.

The theoretical preparation is a crucial foundation. Education is among the most powerful weapons of our society. That is why it is important all of us to contribute, so that it could improve”, said the TV and radio host Niki Kanchev. He added that this could be achieved by showing good examples and telling positive stories.

According to the founder of SoftUniSvetlin Nakov, it is important business representatives to be involved in the educational process. “It is unacceptable that the young are taught by people without even 1 day of working experience. Students need to be acquainted with real cases and to see how their knowledge can be put into practice”, said Svetlin Nakov.

The PR education in Bulgaria needs а seriousreform. It is important to find the balance between theory and practice. The system has to consult with the practitioners in order to adapt to the needs of business”, commented Prof. Lyubomir Stoykov.
