After The Curtain Fell by SUSAN LADIKA [cached]

Ivan Manev, a Bulgarian native who now is dean and professor of management at the University of Maine in Orono and a member of the board of trustees at the American University in Bulgaria (AUBG), started his undergraduate studies in 1982. He studied international economics at what was then known as the Institute of Economics at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences in Sofia.

Students were on a set path. Once they selected their major there was no deviation, and no elective classes. Manev, who was good at math and statistics, would have only been able to study those subjects, which were outside his immediate discipline, on his own time and he was already going to class 43 hours a week.
The first couple of years were "esoterical and theoretical," and Manev expected courses would become more practical. However, with time, "I pretty much realized,this was it."
He taught himself about what was happening in the world by reading publications such as The Financial Times, The Economist, and The Wall Street Journal at the university library. "Fortunately I had access to what was happening in real time," he recalls.
Through that reading, he saw he had major shortcomings in his education on topics such as finance and management. "They were pretty wide gaps. I could figure out I didn't know much."
When it came time to graduate, Manev didn't pick up his diploma. "That was a statement, a way to protest."
After graduating in 1987 he worked in Bulgaria, but was trying to get to the United States to study further. Once the Iron Curtain fell, U.S. universities were interested in bringing in students from Central and Eastern Europe, and he wound up at University of Minnesota-Duluth for his MBA, before getting his PhD at Boston College.
