In the 2020/2021 academic year, we celebrated the 95th anniversary of our University. Almost one hundred years of activity allowed for building a high position in the academic environment, solid relationships with business and lasting interpersonal ties. We changed names, but not attitude. Our goal has always been to educate and conduct scientific research at the highest level. From the very beginning, we updated and developed educational programs and research areas to respond to the needs of the labor market and the economy in line with the imperative of reliability and faith in the power of knowledge. For decades, our priority has been to provide students and the business environment with the substantive foundations and tools for making rational decisions and development. From the very beginning, we believed that reliable knowledge and academic values are the best inspiration.


Combining tradition and modernity has allowed us to use the rich resources of knowledge and values for the creation of new ideas and solutions and for setting directions favorable for the progress of civilization. As 95 years ago, we are close to intellectual and humanistic values, the discipline of learning the truth with the help of factual methods, and the culture of openness and ethics.


The program of the celebrations included scientific events, which were a platform for the presentation and exchange of knowledge and thoughts. According to tradition, the PUEB Day was also organized. Its form was adapted to the regime of a pandemic situation, however, it did not lack substantive and cultural strengths. Moreover, a jubilee book was published, the editing of which was entrusted to prof. Henryk Mruk. Another important publication was the document defining the future directions of activities - PUEB Strategy for 2021-2024. During the jubilee inauguration of the academic year 2021/2022, which took place on October 12, 2021, the honorary diploma of doctor honoris causa was awarded to prof. Grzegorz W. Kolodko.
