Two European accreditations by the EAPAA for the Faculty of Public Administration
We are proud to announce that the Faculty of Public Administration was awarded two European accreditations by the EAPAA - European Association for Public Administration Accreditation.
The General Secretary of the European Association for Public Administration Accreditation adopted the decision at the annual Conference in Bucharest, that both study programmes, the First Cycle Professional Study Programme in Administration and the First Cycle University Study Programme in Administration, meet the requirements defined by the EAPAA high quality standards.
The Faculty of Public Administration has obtained the first two Slovenian first cycle study programmes in Administration with European accreditation. In strong competition the two programmes have joined the group of only 8 first cycle study programmes in all European states that meet the quality criteria set by the EAPAA Accreditation Committee.
The EAPAA European Accreditation is the only European accreditation to be awarded to a study programme in Public Administration. Let us remember that the Faculty’s Second Cycle Master Study Programme in Administration was awarded the EAPAA accreditation already in 2008.
“I am proud that both study programmes have been awarded this prestigious European accreditation of quality. For me, this is the evidence that our work is excellent and that our study programmes belong to the top European higher education study programmes in Public Administration. This means greater reputation of the Faculty of Public Administration among competitive European institutions and professional organizations, and a better stepping stone for our students and graduates in student exchange activities and on the labor market”
