Faculty of Economics and Business – FEB

In its more than 60 years of existence and tradition, the Faculty of Economics and Business at the University of Maribor has developed and has become a modern faculty. During all these years, more than 32,000 students graduated from the FEB, hence acquiring different professional and scientific titles. Between 2006 and 2008, we successfully transformed all our study programmes in compliance with the Bologna declaration requirements by adopting the 3 + 2 + 3 model.

We firmly believe that excellence is of utmost importance in the globalisation processes, which also shape the university sphere. That is why the Faculty of Economics and Business has accredited its study programmes with the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), the European Council for Business Education (ECBE), and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International).

At the Faculty of Economics and Business, a lot of emphasis is placed on research excellence and on the integration of our research activities and our pedagogical activities, which is reflected in the transfer of research findings into the study process. Our motivated staff maintain the internationally comparable quality of their work. We are also well aware of our social responsibility and we support sustainable development.

About Maribor and Slovenia

The city’s character has been shaped by its industry, which once performed a significant role in the Slovenian economy. Today, Maribor offers a rich and varied cultural experience to its inhabitants and visitors alike with its renowned Slovenian National Theatre Maribor featuring drama, opera and ballet performances, a number of museums and galleries offering numerous cultural events, therefore greatly contributing to the Slovenian cultural life.

Moreover, with its University, Maribor is also the city with a distinguished intellectual potential. The fact that the town has chosen to call itself ‘the University City’ denotes its awareness of the importance of education and research in its development.

All these features make Maribor an attractive and enjoyable destination for visitors from Slovenia and abroad.
