The Faculty of Economics, Business and Tourism at the University of Split, first time accredited EPAS

We are delighted to announce the initial accreditation of the Undergraduate Programme in Business Studies and the Graduate Programme in Business Studies at the Faculty of Economics, Business and Tourism, University of Split.

Congratulating the school on its success, the Director of EPAS, Jens Tøndel, said: “We are delighted to welcome the Faculty of Economics, Business and Tourism, University of Split, to the pool of institutions with EPAS accredited programmes. Both programmes present evident strengths. We want to commend the school for the way values of Ethics, responsibility and sustainability are integrated into the curriculum. Their achievement illustrates their commitment to the continuous quality improvement of their programme.”

The Undergraduate Programme in Business Studies (UPB) is a well-structured degree programme with a strong reputation nationally. The course offers a good balance between managerial and academic components and students receive excellent individualised learning support. Overall the UPB provides a sound basis for students to continue onto the Graduate Programme in Business Studies.

Like its undergraduate counterpart, the Graduate Programme in Business Studies (GPB) also has an excellent reputation nationally, and graduate students receive an impressive level of individualised learning support from faculty throughout their studies. Students on the GPB receive a good basis for their further career progression thanks to the programme’s internship opportunities and good connection with practice.

Maja Fredotovic, Dean of the Faculty of Economics, Business and Tourism, commented: “The Faculty of Economics, Business and Tourism in Split is proud to be awarded the EPAS accreditation for our undergraduate and graduate programmes in Business Studies. It acknowledges not only the quality of our study programmes but also the dedication, enthusiasm and collaboration of the entire faculty’s ecosystem (employees, students, alumni, corporate, NGO). We would like to thank the EFMD staff, our EPAS advisor and Peer Review Team for their support during the accreditation process. We have learnt a lot, and we believe that being a member of the EPAS community will help us make further steps towards excellence in the next three years.”
