Meeting with the Mayor of the City of Sopot

On January 16, 2018, students of the first year of the second degree of International Business specialization took part in a meeting with the Mayor of Sopot, Mr. Jacek Karnowski. The meeting was held in the City Hall, in the City Council of Sopot. The students were accompanied by: prof. zw. dr hab. Ewa Oziewicz (Director of the Institute of International Business), dr hab. Anna Maria Nikodemska-Wołowik, prof. UG (Deputy Director of the Institute of International Business) and dr Magdalena Mosionek-Schweda (Coordinator of the International Business specialization). During the 1.5-hour presentation, the students had the opportunity to learn about the regional division of the European Union and Poland, the level of development of particular regions, as well as the sources of financing of local governments in Poland. These issues were particularly interesting for students from outside the EU, including from Ethiopia, Mexico, Russia, Turkey and Ukraine. Mr Mayor told the students about the attractions of Sopot and the most important investments thanks to which Sopot is a unique place to live, work and study. We would like to thank Mr Mayor, Mrs. Katarzyna Choczaj and the City Hall Employees for a nice reception.
