Gdansk University of Technology, Faculty of Management and Economics

Gdansk University of Technology
Faculty of Management and Economics
Poland

http://www.zie.pg.gda.pl

About us
Gdansk University of Technology (GUT) was founded in 1900 as the Royal Prussian Higher School of Technology. The present Gdansk University of Technology (GUT) was created on the basis of a State National Council decree issued on 24th May 1945.
Today GUT has 2500 staff members, including 1200 academic teachers to attend to students needs and there are 26000 students in nine faculties.

The Faculty of Management and Economics is the youngest, and it was formed in 1993. Over the 18 years of its existence the Faculty has developed dynamically. The number of students has grown from a few hundreds to almost three thousand.
For a long time the Faculty has been a true potentate at the Pomeranian market of postgraduate studies, with more than 30 editions and a few hundreds of students annually. In 2008 a bilingual, specialized, elite MBA programme was started in collaboration with numerous foreign centres.

We occupy top ranking positions in Poland and we are listed in the classification of 1,000 world’s best school of business, having been awarded three palms by Eduniversal in 2008 and 2009.

We are one of Poland’s few higher training institutes enjoying membership of European Foundation for Management Development where best schools of business and management faculties are associated.

And we are among a dozen or so of higher training institutes awarded the status of a “Plagiarism-Fighting Faculty”, the procedures employed by us in that respect having been found to be exemplary ones.

On the whole, we are highly appraised by Poland’s educational market: we are a recognizable brand, our diplomas are valued in the labour market, and we have lots of candidates to our full-time and postgraduate studies.

Our competitive advantage is now based on the following factors: the undergraduate engineering studies in Management, the monopoly we have on the Tri-City market as regards free European studies, English-language curricula, an attractive offer of postgraduate programmes, an MBA programme.

Secondly as one of the stakeholders in region, wants to actively participate in creating programmes and implementing activities for mitigation effects of demographic change.
