Arayik Harutyunyan: Acting rector of the Armenian State Economic  University will leave his post

ArmInfo. The Acting Rector of the Armenian State Economic University Ruben Hayrapetyan will leave his post. The Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sports of Armenia Arayik Harutyunyan wrote about this on his Facebook page.

"Today, on my initiative, a meeting was held with the acting head of  the Armenian State Economic University, Ruben Hayrapetyan, during  which the situation around the university was discussed, in  particular, allegations related to the problems in his doctoral  dissertation, some of which the acting rector himself had publicly  admitted," the minister wrote.

As Harutyunyan noted, taking into account the fact that for the  Armenian government and for him personally the exclusion of such  phenomena in the system of science and education is a priority, the  interlocutors agreed that Hayrapetyan will leave his post.

According to the head of the ministry this step should be one more  confirmation of the fact that the rule of law and a certain value  system are paramount for the new Armenian government, regardless of  the circumstances.

To recall, on December 20, 2018 at a meeting of the administration of  the State Economic University of Armenia, which was also attended by  Minister of Education of Armenia Arayik Harutyunyan, Head of the  Department of Management, Doctor of Economics, the youngest professor  of Armenia Ruben Hayrapetyan was appointed Acting Rector of the State  Economic University. Soon, a number of university professors accused  him of plagiarism, Hayrapetyan himself admits that there are problems  in the theoretical part of his doctoral dissertation, emphasizing  that there were no references, but rejects the charges of plagiarism.
