Elene Pici, Friedrich Ebert Stiftung
I did not realize it until I graduate, that I had passed at Epoka University four incredible years – years of knowledge increase; years of becoming more professional; years of challenging myself and enhancing my personality traits; years of great social activities and good friends… Epoka is not perfect, but it definitely outranks all the other universities in Albania in many aspects – the quality of education meets the international standards; the social life is very rich offering many cultural, intellectual and sportive activities organized by the many students’ clubs and the students’ senate; the infrastructure is contemporaneous, offering all what a modern education environment needs; and above all, it is a value-driven education institution. I really appreciate that students’ unique personality is respected, that the students are supported in identifying their own skills and abilities, and they are provided with role-models of social values, so that apart of becoming professional, we become also good and valuable citizens. Epoka University has all the capacities to always be the new area of education in our country. For that, I am proud that I am an alumni of this university, and I always strive to be a good ambassador of it.
Erjon Sadria, Gener 2
My name is Erjon Sadrija and I am from Koplik. I am graduated to one of the most honored universities in Albania which is Epoka University during the period of 2009 – 2013. I have been graduated as a civil engineer with an average of 3.40. For the moment I am also continuing with master program at this University. I am working in one of the biggest company in Albania, Gener2 in the position of the cost manager responsible for cost planning, cost estimation, cost control, cost analysis, preparation of the tender documents, preparation of the cost plan and other similar duties. Everyone think that after finishing the school everything is easy but in reality that is the moment that the difficulties starts to appear. Most of the people finishes their school and do not have any help, support or opportunity offered from their university. So it is important to say and thank Epoka for the area that it creates for the students filled with love being like in a family area, great professors that are part of the university and their efficient knowledge that gave to students without being tired any moment and a special attention must be considered for the help and opportunities that this university offers to the students during the study period and even after that. One of the most important factors to reach success is the knowledge that in Epoka University is offered in English which is an international language with a very wide range of international books found in university library which are very important to take this knowledge and differentiate the Epoka students from the others. This why is important to choose Epoka University.
I want to mention to everyone that will read this letter that to attend Epoka University is a great chance that not everyone has it so it is important to know its value even that most of the attended ones start to clear their thinking after start working thanking the Epoka University for the knowledge, support and help that gave to everyone. As a last word I want to thank one more time Epoka University for all that has done for me and for the chance that gave to me to write this letter and wish all the best for it and its students.
IF YOU WANT TO SUCCESS CHOOSE EPOKA UNIVERSITY.
Klejla Shira, Banka Kombetare Tregtare
Deciding where to study is one of the most important decisions that a young person should take in life. Epoka University is a continuance of Turkish colleges, where I being a former graduate of Turgut Özal, knowing well its structure and teaching methods and above all being satisfied with those, decided to study in this university. It's been the best choice, because after all the investment has brought to me different advantages. I had the opportunity to study in a prestigious, modern and innovative university. There I realized the value of the word meritocracy. Epoka University is one of the fewest, if not the only educational institution in Albania, which fairly evaluates the students’ academic achievements. This happens as a result of the policies of recruiting the academic staff, which I am very grateful and endlessly thank them for the support and hard work shown during the four years of studies. Alternation of academic knowledge and practical one through various internships, offered to me by Epoka University, has been another advantage that is worthy of mention. On the other hand I had the opportunity to continuously follow open forums, where economic, political and social actuality has been increasingly vulnerable through conversations with important people from the country and not only. Epoka University gave me the opportunity to be awarded the degree of Bachelor in Banking and Finance and also a Double Major Bachelor in Economics. I feel proud to have studied at a university where the quality of education has been optimal and where I invested for a secure future.
Ermal Shpuza, Asya Bank
My name is Ermal Shpuza. I am graduated from the Epoka Universityin Banking and Finance Program back in 2012. I think that university helps the character building and is the one that affects our whole life. That’s why I chose to study at Epoka University. After graduation, I got accepted by the Asya Bank in Istanbul, when I am actually working as Specialist in the Loan Allocation Department. The first thing which I realized during my working life is the quality of my education that I received at Epoka University. When I face with a problem at the site, I can solve the problem with the knowledges which I obtained during my education. Another part that I want to mention about Epoka University are the social clubs and sport activities. By the help of these social opportunities, we developed good friendships during our education. I am sure that I made the correct decision by studying at Epoka University.
To complete, I am thankful to my professors who prepared me for life and I recommend Epoka University to all students. I am honored that I am part of the Epoka University family. Wish you the best.
Erisa Terolli, PhD Candidate Sapienza University
My name is Erisa Terolli. I have received my master degree in Computer Engineering at Epoka University in June 2014. For the moment I am following my PHD studies in La Sapienza University of Rome with a full international fellowship.
Studying at Epoka University is one of the most fruitful experiences that I have ever lived. Epoka as an institution, has exceed my expectations, because I have found not only professional professors but also people trying hard to help us construct our future career. The career development programs like internships, mentorships and volunteer works offered during my studies have helped me a lot to feel comfortable with the team work in an international environment. Nowadays I am working with one of the most well-known professors in Algorithms, Prof. Alessandro Panconesi,and I realize that the background, builded during my bachelor and master studies in Epoka, is a good start to take the challenge of researching internationally.
Undoubtedly, I have to say that Epoka is the best academic environment for a student that wants dedication, professionalism and excellence.
