Development of the Faculty of Administration

The Faculty of Administration is one of the youngest members of the University of Ljubljana as a fully faculty, but is actually an institution with a long tradition. Its beginnings go back to 1956 when the School of Public Administration was established; in 1995, it was transformed into the University School of Public Administration. On 5 April 2003 the University School of Public Administration officially became the Faculty of Administration.

Today the Faculty carries out its mission in undergraduate and graduate education programmes, research, development and consulting activities, professional training of civil servants, and international cooperation, concentrating on the following fields:

  • Legal regulation and development in public sector
  • Public sector organisation
  • Public sector economics
  • Public finance
  • Public sector management
  • Public sector information systems and development of e-administration.

The Faculty continues to develop existing programmes, while introducing the new joint study programmes prepared in cooperation with faculties abroad. It is also introducing new forms of study, such as distance learning, problem-based learning, and teamwork.

We are very proud that master's study programme in Administration was accredited by the EAPAA association (European Association for Public Administration Accreditation) in September 2008, while our first cycle study programme in Administration was accredited in September 2011.
