Profile

The Faculty prepares future economists capable of working with all types of social and economic data, with regard to their gathering, processing, control and the development of information systems. The students will be able to implement these data into financial systems for the analysis of achieved results in social and finance areas, in particular for the preparation of social and economic strategies, decision making and forecasting. The FEI offers university education in accredited study programmes at the first, second and third levels.

The Faculty’s graduates are able to find employment, in particular, in areas where, besides knowledge of macro- and microeconomics, economic policy and management, it is required to have the ability to work with quantitative data of various social and economic types, through the use of computational techniques, and to apply them in analysis, decision making and fore casting. They work in various positions, of which the following are typical: economic analysts, statisticians and forecasters, managers, actuaries, designers of economic information systems for companies and data processing centres, auditors, controllers, and accountants. In addition, they may also be found in higher management positions and in the upper management of state and local administration.

The Faculty’s teaching plans for each study programme are comparable with those of leading European and world universities with similar aims. The strategic goal of the Faculty is to build up a leading research and teaching establishment, which would on the one hand meet the needs of practice and achieve serious results in the area of research, whilst providing education which is fully compatible with that of comparable leading world education institutions.
