UNIVERSITY OF TIRANA, FACULTY OF ECONOMY


Faculty of Economy was founded at 1951, named as the High Institute of Economy. At 1957, The High Institute of Economy joins the University of Tirana. At that time the Faculty of Economy offered only two diplomas: Economy and Accounting.

Before 1990s the faculty offered six different diplomas: Economist for Industry, Economist for Finance, Political-Economy, Economist for Trade, Economist for Statistics and Merceology.

In the past two decades, due to new democratic development, the educational system in Albania was completely restructured;  the faculty of Economy also is reorganized and restructured, being oriented at the West European style universities through introducing new curricula’s, working close with European and American Universities fostering new experience and knowledge. After 1991 the faculty has worked under the framework of TEMPUS, DAAD, USAID projects, creating links USA, British, Germane, Italian, French, Polish and Greek universities.

In close cooperation with University of Nebraska in USA, Faculty of Economy introduced the new MBA and MPA postgraduate program. After the success story of Postgraduate program, Faculty of Economy continued to expand even further with Bamberg University (Germany) through introducing the new Master in Economics & European Studies and with Modena University (Italy) through introducing Masters in Marketing, Finance and Accounting.

Majority of our academic staff was specialized and trained in different Western universities through TEMPUS, DAAD and USAID projects.  Today, we have several full time and part time lecturers from University of Bamberg (Germany), University of Nebraska (USA), University of Staffordshire (England) and University of Modena (Italy) who are offering western academic experience not only to Albanian students but also to their Albanian colleagues. 

Today the academic staff of Faculty of Economy composes of 25 professors, 23 associated professors, 15 doctors, 23 pedagogues -lecturers and 24 assistants. Beside this number, faculty has around 90 part time staff. Many of them are well qualified, having academic degree or titles in Western Universities.
