The University of Ljubljana (UL) is an institution with a very rich tradition: it was established in 1919 on the foundations of a long-established pedagogical tradition. With its more than 63,000 undergraduate and post-graduate students, it ranks among the biggest universities in the world scale. A total of 23 faculties, 3 academies of art and 1 university college employ approximately 4000 teaching and research staff, assisted by nearly 900 technical and administrative staff.
The Faculty of Economics (FELU) at the University of Ljubljana was founded in 1946 and has a long tradition in research and education. The FELU is both a national leader and an internationally recognized academic and research institution in the fields of business and economics. FELU has been awarded accreditation by both the AACSB (the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) and EQUIS (the European Quality Improvement System), making it among 91 business schools in the world to hold both accreditations. The experience gained in the process of accreditation and procedures developed can help the Project especially in achieving outcomes related to quality assurance. FELU each year publishes over 50 high-quality research papers in recognised international peer-reviewed journals. In the period 2007-2011, the FELU has had 90 corporate/public customers commissioning over 120 research projects. The FELU actively links with research organisations and companies to set up research centres and co-operate in other scientific areas. FELU successfully completed several EU projects and successfully applied for the new EU-based funds (e.g., TEMPUS, 6th and 7th Framework Programme). As a sign of recognition of our research community, we have been awarded the organisation of all major European scientific conferences in the business fields (e.g., the European Finance Association - EFA, European Association for Research in Industrial Economics – EARIE, European Marketing Academy – EMAC, European Accounting Association – EMAC). We are mindful of research relevant to our domestic and Central European environment, but require the same standards as for any other publication.
