School of European Economic Studies

The School of European Economic Studies was set up in 2000 under the name Studies of the European Economic Integration, being the youngest school at the time within the Romanian-American University. The School was renamed in 2008.

The implications of a future adjusted to the requirements, components and aspects connected with European business define the initiative for education which is constantly adapted to a European economic framework through the setup of the School of European Economic Studies.

Through the ongoing harmonization with the highest educational standards of European and American universities, our School aims to offer its undergraduates an environment compliant with the requirements of the business environment and public institutions, creating partnerships, offering modernization and ongoing training, building up the premises of a capital that starts with us.

The study of the integration phenomenon is presented through lectures held by the teaching staff of the Romanian-American University and by specialists who are directly involved in the process of economic integration of Romania in the European Union.

[…]The Romanian-American University is different, because here you can be more than a student. The career opportunities and those for personal development appear everywhere, research resources are varied and numerous, while events are extremely attractive. I am really glad that I met kind professors, eager to support us, as well as friendly colleagues with whom I have spent some of the most important moments of our development as adults. In short, I met a family, whose members give us wings towards a better future and who are offering us the bases towards a career of success.

All I have learned at RAU, during my studies and during the extracurricular activities, helped me accomplish my dreams, which at one point I couldn’t believe could become reality. To visit Japan, to study and live there, then to work in a field that I love, in the most appropriate environment, together with passionate people, all these became reality because of the Romanian American University and its people.

I believe that my graduate degree facilitated my integration into the labor market primarily through the themes addressed during the courses of the four years of study and through the subjects studied.

It was a very useful experience that gave me the chance to develop professional and personal skills and that laid the foundations for my career. [...] In my four years of RAU I learned a lot of interesting things and met distinguished people from both colleagues and teachers. Thus I gained self-confidence and the desire for becoming a professional. [...]
