The Faculty of Economics, University of Ljubljana (the FELU) was established in 1946. It is one of the 23 faculties and 3 art academies of the University of Ljubljana, which is the largest public university in Slovenia with approximately 50,000 students. The Faculty of Economics is the largest higher education and research institution in the field of business and economics in Slovenia and also has the biggest centre for executive education within a university setting. It has close ties with the international education and research sphere, also giving it a strong position in the markets of CEE. Its values are integrity, cooperation, responsibility, knowledge and academic freedom. The FELU’s new 2016-2020 strategic plan has already been adopted. The new mission of the Faculty of Economics is to broaden horizons and build competencies for the socially responsible management of business and economic challenges. The school envisions becoming the school of choice in Central Europe for prospective students in business and economics.
FELU is the only school in the wider region to have been awarded the EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA international accreditations, thereby joining the elite group of Triple Crown schools. This achievement ranks it among the top 1% of business and economics schools in the world. Internationalisation, ethics, responsibility, sustainability and corporate connections have always been an important part of its strategic orientation and they are also clearly integrated into the 11 strategic areas of the new strategy of the Faculty of Economics for the 2016–2020 period.
The FELU provides education at all levels (undergraduate, graduate, doctoral, executive and lifelong learning) and in most key areas of specialization. It offers Bologna type programmes in all three cycles (3+2+3 structure). FELU students can choose among 17 study programmes on three different study levels (undergraduate, graduate, doctoral). Almost all of them are aimed at an international audience and are consequently offered in English (in parallel to constitutionally required Slovenian study tracks). Furthermore, several double and joint degree programmes with renowned schools are offered.
