models of economic development.

competitiveness, necessarily requiring increased efficiency, but respect for
the environment cannot and should not be overlooked and misused in the
competition of competitors to reduce costs at all costs. At the same time, the
new development model supports the competitiveness and value of human capital,
economic growth, respect for the environment and human rights, legal security,
productivity and social harmony.

academic staff and experts of this university in the field of engineering,
architecture, economics and information technology.

Professor Arben Malaj praised the initiatives of the Metropolitan Tirana
University. "Metropolitan faces a not easy challenge, but I would consider
it a noble challenge to influence as a team to modernize your university
curricula. Young people should not be afraid of the current crisis; they should
not consider themselves a generation lost. It is their education and the desire
to work that enables the progress of a country ", claimed Malaj.
