School of Management-Marketing

The School of Management-Marketing was set up within the Romanian-American University in 1991. The idea of setting up a school with this profile belonged to Professor Ion Smedescu, PhD., founder of the Romanian-American University.

The School of Management-Marketing was set up within the Romanian-American University in 1991. The school profile comprises two economic specialties: management and marketing; it reflects the needs of the business environment and offers the school graduates a competitive edge in respect of their access to the labor market due to the wide array of theoretical acumen, practical skills and abilities which set them apart from the other institutions of higher economic education.

The School of Management-Marketing updates its educational offer as a result of its ongoing collaboration with the business environment which ensures both the exchange and sharing of knowledge, and the permanent contact with real life problems and solutions. Education and training in the above-mentioned fields follow student-oriented programs, as the School has become known especially for launching graduates with a highly developed entrepreneurial spirit on the labor market.

The School of Management-Marketing opts for a dynamic and participative training system, providing a modern, competitive and open education, particularly in the context of a constantly changing global environment, combining the pragmatism of the American model with the tradition of Romanian education.

The School of Management-Marketing aims to train specialists with skills in management and marketing, with vast theoretical and practical knowledge, capable of fast and efficient integration in corporations at various hierarchical levels. The focus has been on interdisciplinary and the development of skills and competences, in compliance with the current economic and social transformations, the aim being a good professional insertion.

For me, the Romanian-American University is the place where I managed to develop the most and make friends for life. The opportunities I found here helped me to be the person I am today - Student Clubs, Internal and International Professors, the team, but also programs such as Work & Travel or Erasmus +. If at the beginning of the first year of college I thought that the Romanian-American University was that academic environment that suited me, now I can say that I know for sure that it is so. If all educational institutions in the country were open and student-oriented as this university is, Romania would be a much better place from an educational point of view and not only.

For me, RAU has been a pioneer through the opportunities it offers to any student. My involvement as a volunteer in the Center for Romanian-Japanese Studies “Angela Hondru” and the seriousness with which I treated each course and seminar brought me the minimum experience that any employer is looking for. […] The internship programs in the country and abroad, the Erasmus + scholarships in America, Asia or Europe, the activities organized by the Student Club, the theater club or the Japanese, Chinese and Korean courses are just some of the activities you can try during your studies.

[…] I have a multidisciplinary education, I studied Law and Management in parallel, thus obtaining two bachelor's degrees. I am very grateful, and this would not have been possible without the support of my teachers and colleagues. RAU always offered me new opportunities, so I participated in many extracurricular activities and this gave me the opportunity to meet and work with very dear people, and those with whom I interacted had a significant impact on my evolution. RAU is more than a higher education institution, it is a University that manages to go beyond the conventional patterns.

It is said that “the first seven years of life when one is raised at home” prepare you for the first stage of life: the stage of learning and knowledge. In a similar way, I felt the study years at RAU as a preparatory period for the next stage of life: the stage of development and exploration. I can say with all my heart that the five years spent at RAU were the most intense years of my life so far. Of course, my membership in the Students Club weighs heavily on my assertion. I lived moments that not many have the opportunity to live alongside colleagues and professors and I am grateful for the experiences, emotions, joys and feelings that I carry and keep as memories in my mind and soul. RAU helped me to overcome my limitations, to get out of the comfort zone on countless occasions, to surpass myself and to be a kinder person with those around me. […]

[…] I had the honor and joy of being a student between 2009 and 2011. In this period I attended the courses of the “Management and Marketing of the Organization” Master’s Degree Program, organized under the auspices of the School of Management-Marketing. For me, this program meant a great change, a new vision to approach a situation because I was a Physics Engineer hence I had already graduated from The Faculty of Physics, at The University of Bucharest. When I enrolled in this study program, I was the Head of Metrology within the LAROMET Group, and the need to complete a master’s degree program in “Management and Marketing of the Organization” arose from my desire to acquire new knowledge to enhance my career prospects.
