At the gala ceremony held in Warsaw on 22 June, Prof. Piotr Wachowiak, SGH Rector, received the diplomas awarded by the representatives of the Perspektywy Educational Foundation, the ranking organiser. He considered that a particularly important category in which SGH Warsaw School of Economics was ranked first, was the result of the ranking showing a clear advantage of SGH graduates on the job market. 

The fact that SGH Warsaw School of Economics has once again taken the first place in the category of economic universities and, above all, in the category Graduates on the job market, which is so important from our point of view, truly is a great achievement. SGH educates leaders – we often emphasise this – but our ambition is that our graduates should easily find a satisfying position on the job market, as evidenced by the results of the ranking and the ELA survey (Polish Alumni Success Tracking). Nothing defines the importance of an SGH diploma more than this kind of distinction,” said SGH Rector Professor Piotr Wachowiak. “I also consider it a very significant success that Perspektywy magazine recognized our university as the leading university in the ranking of study programmes, giving us the top place for our Finance and Accounting programme, and the second place for Economics and Management,” he added.
