Prince Hans-Adam Made an Honorary Professor

Today at noon, Prince Hans-Adam II was awarded two titles at Babeș-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca, Romania: honorary professor and honorary senator.

The award was proposed by the university's Faculty of Business to recognize Prince Hans-Adam for his focused efforts in international trade and financial improvements, among other achievements. The official statement from the school reads, in translation: "in recognition of his outstanding contribution in the field of academic research to develop the classical principles of self-determination, democracy and free international trade, as well as substantial financial support to Romania to strengthen bilateral cooperation between the two countries". See here for the original, in Romanian.

The Faculty of Business lecturer Ioan Alin Nistor, who is standing second from the right in the photo above, presented the award.

Babeș-Bolyai University is the largest university in Romania, with nearly 40,000 students, and is ranked as one of the best higher education institutions in that country.

UPDATE: Some more photos from the Romanian press. It should be noted that Prince Radu was there as well (and photographed above).
