Economics and International Business

The School of European Economic Studies was created in 2000 under the name Studies of European Economic Accession, and is therefore the youngest school in Romanian-American University. The change in the name of the School took place in 2008, when the Bachelor program was also accredited. 

The School of European Economic Studies provides students with a Bachelor program and two Master programs, as mentioned below:

The issues and challenges regarding the European Union, Romania’s accession and integration, as well as globalization, have generated favorable conditions so that the School of European Economic Studies can be a starting point for the training and development of future specialists who are required in Romania. 

In this context, the graduate students of the programs organized by the School of European Economic Studies will be able to work as

  • experts in the field of European integration in central and local administration; 
  • specialists in the representative institutions of the European Union, such as: the Council of the European Union, the European Commission, the European Parliament;
  • economic analysts in issues regarding the economy of the European Union;
  • economic experts in international economic relations;
  • trainers in the field of European and international economic integration;
  • specialists in European fund projects and European funding program design;
  • economic consultants in Romanian and foreign companies, etc. 

During the short period of time from its foundation until the present day, the School of European Economic Studies has been shaped by a well established personnel policy, considering that many distinctive politicians and professionals are directly engaged in the European issues and have been teaching specialized courses for all years of academic study. We can name the following: Prof. Eugen Dijmărescu, PhD, former vice-governor of the National Bank of Romania, currently manager of Bank Deposit Guarantee Bank, Sessional Lecturer Leonard Orban, former European Commissioner for multilingualism, currently presidential adviser for European issues, Lecturer Dan Pascariu, PhD, chief of the Supervisory Board of UniCredit Bank, Prof. Dumitru Miron, PhD, president of the Steering Board of the Romanian-American Foundation for the Promotion of Education and Culture, Prof. Neculae Nabarjoiu, PhD, former counselor – Head of the Department for Education and Security – the Government of Romania, etc.

The School of European Economic Studies cooperates with well-known institutions in the field of European and international business for a series of projects, practice stages, and extracurricular courses, such as: Representation Office of European Commission in Romania, European Institute in Romania, Chamber for Commerce and Industry of Romania, Europe Direct Center, etc. 

During this academic year, the School of European Economic Studies has broadened the horizons by accrediting a Master program in English, International Economic Relations and Diplomacy, based on international relations and economic diplomacy, that will benefit from the support of many specialists in international relations and European studies.
