SINGIDUNUM UNIVERSITY

By now, you must have already decided whether you want to enrol at a university or not. The sooner you make a decision about what to study, the greater opportunities for success on both professional and private level are. One of the challenges is to set your life goals. In addition, a degree enables you better career opportunities and more favourable financial options. Today, a degree is a prerequisite, both in terms of adequate business communication and goal achievement.

The choice of faculty is not solely about deciding where to spend the following three or four years, but it could also have a bearing on the course of your life. It is of great importance to choose the programme adequately in order to achieve the desired objectives. Prior to making the final decision, it is essential to make sure that the University you want to enroll is accredited.

Accreditation is a process used to determine whether a higher education institution meets the required standards to perform the job related to studies (bachelor, vocational, specialist, master and doctoral), i.e. whether the study programmes are in accordance with the prescribed standards.

This guide is designed to help you make the right choice timely.

WELCOME TO THE PATH OF SUCCESS

Dear prospective students,

You are faced with an important decision these days. The decision regarding your further education will have an impact on your future professional life and your plans. A university degree is important for the beginning of your career. It says a lot about your educational background and whether you are ready for the next challenge – the job. The degree does say a lot about you, but it also says a lot about us who are supposed to pass the necessary knowledge on to you. Singidunum University is aware that we are partly responsible for your future.

Our goal is that you acquire knowledge and practical skills at the University that will enable you to make and accomplish great plans.

7 GOLDEN RULES

Rule 1/ Accreditation

Before you make the final decision it is very important that you are entirely sure that the University i.e. the Faculty you decided to enrol is accredited. The Commission for Accreditation and Quality Assurance founded by the National Higher Education Council (www.kapk.org) published a document “A guide through accredited programmes of study at higher education institutions in the Republic of Serbia”, where you can see which universities i.e. which faculties have received accreditation. Accreditation is a process which establishes whether a higher education institution meets the standards for conducting study-related activities, i.e. it makes sure that programmes of study are in accordance with the standards. Aside from the process of accreditation, the Ministry of Education and Science checks the working conditions of the faculty and issues a license. It is of prime importance that the faculty you wish to enrol possesses the Accreditation assurance and license.

RULE 2/ FACULTY WEBSITE

Each faculty has its own website where you are able to find a lot of useful information that may be of help when choosing a faculty. Look into the structure of the study programmes, i.e. the courses studied at the individual study programmes and make sure they meet the requirements of your future career. Look into the structure of the teaching staff and associates that lecture at the higher education institution. Carefully read over the news posted on the website and make sure they are up-to-date and diverse. Check whether the website has rulebooks and study instructions, as well as other recommendations that can assure you that the faculty treats its students responsibly and professionally.

RULE 3/ VISIT THE FACULTY

You should never make the final choice before visiting the faculty you want to enrol. No matter how well you think you know the faculty you decided to study, you can find a lot by spending several hours at the premises of the faculty, the choice of which your entire life may depend upon. You are advised to bring along a family member, because you may later exchange experiences with him or her. Singidunum University has an “Open door” policy, aimed at receiving new students, which is why you are advised to schedule your appointment in advance. During the visit you will have the opportunity to distinguish between different faculties and only then will you be able to know what the best choice for you is.

RULE 4/ QUALITY

Sometimes we make a choice of faculty solely on the basis of prejudice, without having checked them against reality. For example if the short-list of the faculties includes those that either your parents or somebody you know attended, you are advised to check how much things have changed since that time, and see whether, once great faculties, have kept abreast of the times and if they apply modern working methods. If the answer is NO, then it is up to you to choose the faculty that can prepare you for the future, provides practice, in addition to theoretical offers hands-on knowledge, and also motivates you to learn at least two foreign languages, helps you to build up your career and eventually find employment. In addition, inquire about the information system and how administration is organised, whether regular office hours are held and if they organize additional classes. The quality of Singidunum University as the winner of the Brand Leader award 2012 was recognised and assessed by students, partners, business and academic community, and confirmed by the results of independent research. Choose QUALITY!

RULE 5/ TUITION

It is important to check what is included in the price of tuition at some faculties, so that they can plan in advance. At Singidunum University the cost of tuition includes textbooks while trust is also built in such way that the price of tuition remains unchanged from the beginning until the end of studies.

RULE 6/ RESEARCH

Conduct research, ask questions, check and make sure that the reality is in accordance with what you think. You will hear many people say that at that faculty “nobody studies”, “it’s too hard”, “it’s too expensive” etc. without them actually being familiar with the facts. Don’t accept such generalisations without any proof. It’s very important to inquire about the experiences of students who currently attend this faculty. Look for “a student advisor” at Singidunum University and he will help you find answers to all the questions related to your student life.

RULE 7/ MAKE A DECISION

After you have explored all options of good-quality education it is time to make a decision. It is important to enroll the faculty which is aware that its teaching staff are partly responsible for your future. The university’s aim should be your acquisition of knowledge and hands-on skills that will enable you to make and achieve great plans.

Faculty of Business in Belgrade

Dean’s Address

Dear prospective students,
Welcome to the Faculty of Business in Belgrade!
The Faculty of Business with its flexible curricula responds to all the contemporary challenges, so that its graduates can acquire knowledge, skills and competences for doing business in global environment. The Faculty was the first one within the integrated Singidunum University to start working. It continues the tradition of the Faculty of Financial Management and Insurance (FFMI), which was founded in 1999, by the decision No. 022-05-64/99-04, issued by the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Serbia, on July 29th 1999. In accordance with the contemporary organisation of American and European universities, the Faculty changed its name in 2010 into the Faculty of Business – Department of Business Economics (DBE).

The Faculty of Business in Belgrade educates highly qualified professionals in the fields of economics, and financial, trade and marketing management. The role of this higher-education institution is to provide the society, in which it has been established, with well-educated, competent and motivated professionals, who will be able to face and efficiently deal with the issues imposed by the modern business market. To that end, Singidunum University gathers reputable professors and lecturers within its integrated faculties, including the Faculty of Business in Belgrade. They gained their academic degrees and professional experience at prominent universities as well as within companies and organisation in our country and abroad.

Singidunum University has been an endeavour of respectable professors from the state universities for more than a decade to implement contemporary standards into higher education.
The Faculty of Business in Belgrade offers two accredited study programmes:
  • Study programme Business Economics with the following options/profiles:
    • Financial Management;
    • Accounting, Auditing and Forensics;
    • Human Resources Management (HR) and Public Relations Management (PR)
  • Study programme Marketing and Trade (accredited in April 2010)

Yours faithfully,

Prof. dr Danijel Cvjetićanin, dean

Study programme Business Economics

In accordance with the Bologna Declaration, teaching staff of the Faculty of Business do their best to prepare their students for facing and responding to future challenges. Their aim is to make students love their future profession. By insisting on student-teacher interaction and keeping up to date with the new tendencies in their profession and in science in general, professors and teaching assistants at Singidunum University want to develop students’ personal and business skills. The most valuable and the most appreciated among these skills in modern business are: teamwork skills, communication and negotiation skills, self-management skills, and social intelligence skills – the skills to which special attention is paid at the University. The joy of learning and success and the ability to transfer their experience and knowledge to future generations form the foundation of cooperation and communication between teachers and students.

Singidunum University puts special emphasis on enabling its students to gain both theoretical and practical knowledge. We start from the assumption that practice does not come without solid theoretical foundations and we know the foundations are good only if they can be applied in practice. That is why we face our students with real-life practical cases, with good business examples, which helps them start not only liking the profession they have chosen but start understanding and approaching it properly as well. For those reasons, Singidunum University organises workshops run by economy sector representatives. In this way, our students are given the opportunity to present their solutions to particular real-life problems of the business entity operating in Serbia. This is also the way in which students can leave a good impression on the future employers, as well as apply for jobs in these companies.

The vocation does not only involve the ability to reproduce what you have read in the book. It is a real challenge which helps people develop their creativity by studying and encouraging the development of personal and business skills. Singidunum University teaching staff do their best to help students recognise their creativity and other personal skills, which represent a precondition for success, since we believe that creativity is not something you are born with, but something that you need to foster as well.

WHY IS STUDY PROGRAMME BUSINESS ECONOMICS SIGNIFICANT?

The principles of business economics are present in every company, business entity or organisation which operates in the country or abroad. Contemporary tendencies, both on international and domestic market, indicate that financial sector has the central function in the business process of a company and guides the direction of growth and development of a business entity. At the same time, accounting plays the initial role in recording and monitoring business changes of a business entity, and forms the basis for the preparation of adequate financial statements, with the aim of business decision- making. Auditing enables the improvement of a company’s working process, but also the identification of weaknesses and deficiencies in work and, eventually, the recognition of the ways in which the mentioned flaws can be overcome. Given the fact that companies differ with regard to their staff quality, the selection of human resources is vital for long-term survival of a company. Accordingly, creativity of staff does influence the choice of the messages which are to be clearly and efficiently sent to the public, i.e. the potential buyers and users of products and services.

Classes within the Business Economics study programme enable students to be employed in different companies, operating in all industrial branches in the country or abroad, or for starting their own business, from the field of finance (especially consulting), accounting and auditing. Previous experience has shown that our students proved themselves to be valuable candidates for employment, during the internships offered, and were later employed. In addition, students can, through workshops with business entities, i.e. the solutions to concrete case studies, gain further practice, volunteering, and then even employment, if they prove to be good candidates.

Over 10.000 students attend Singidunum University. Integrated University disposes of 20.000 sq metres of premises fitted with all the necessary computer and internet infrastructure, audio, video and other equipment required for conducting teaching activities.

Expertise from the areas of: financial management; accounting, auditing and forensics; human resources management; public relations management, etc. is what students gain at Singidunum University.

Internship plays an important role within the teaching process at the Faculty of Business and Singidunum University itself. We start from the assumption that practice does not come without solid theoretical foundations and we know the foundations are good if they can be applied in practice. Therefore our students do case studies which inspire them to love what they do and help them to acquire knowledge needed for their future profession.

WHAT MAKES STUDY PROGRAMME BUSINESS ECONOMICS DIFFERENT?

The syllabus of the undergraduate academic studies, which last for four years (240 ECTS) patterns on well-known business schools and faculties in developed university centres of Europe and America, but previous positive experience from Serbia makes an important part of it as well.
Our syllabi and curricula comply with the Bologna Declaration principles, via the implementation of the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).
  • Continuous work on the acquisition of students’ hard and soft skills.
  • Constant learning of two foreign languages (English, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian and Chinese), with the possibility of acquiring internationally recognized certificates in: English language proficiency (British Council), Spanish language proficiency (DELE), and Italian language proficiency (PLIDA).
  • Work in small groups, which enables direct contact with subject teachers.
  • Implementation of the acquired, narrowly-specialized knowledge on renowned software applications, from the field of finance and accounting, both in the country and abroad, such as: SAP, Pantheon, Asseco, etc.
  • Practical assessment of the acquired knowledge; individual and team creativity.
  • Development of managerial and entrepreneurial spirit.
  • Our students are provided with internship during their studies; they are also enabled to improve their personal skills via different workshops run by our Career Centre. At the same time, there are compulsory courses, within undergraduate studies, such as Career Development or Practical Research and Hard Skills, which help students gain and then express their creativity and capability to solve the problems in their own way. In addition, students become aware of the fact that learning is a life- long process and that only those who track changes and conform to them can achieve long-term success on the market.

DESCRIPTION OF STUDY PROGRAMME MARKETING AND TRADE

The aim of the Marketing and Trade Study Programme is to enable students to perform a range of professional activities, and, among them, do business within the field of: product and brand management, the organization of propaganda campaigns, and marketing research, as well as within the field of: the management of the procurement and sales of trading companies, export and import management, etc. This study programme provides interactive classes, which means constant, active involvement of students in the teaching process. Our idea is to motivate students to contribute to the teaching process, especially via discussions, debates, problems’ analyses, illustrations, and practical examples. An important aspect of the teaching process is the usage of case study methodology. Students have the chance to develop their systematic and analytic approach in solving problems in real business situations through the analyses of case studies of reputable companies, from both our country and the world. The most valuable aspect of the usage of case study methodology in the education of our students is the development of specific attitude of mind, which implies the recognition of problems, finding priorities when solving the problems, as well as the approaches by which the problems in business can be solved. Sharing expertise with our students, we help them to cope with the challenges of contemporary market via development of personal business skills, critical thinking and problem solving skills.

An important aspect of the teaching process is the usage of case study methodology. Students have a chance to develop their systematic and analytic approach in solving problems in real business environment through the analyses of case studies of reputable companies, from both our country and the world .

WHY IS STUDY PROGRAMME MARKETING AND TRADE SIGNIFICANT?

The Marketing and Trade Study Programme provides a deep, detailed insight into the methods and techniques of problem analyses and trends on both contemporary local markets and the world market. A customer, i.e. a consumer, is in the focus of business analyses and the establishment of business of all serious, competitive companies. Within this study programme, students are enabled to think about consumers and their needs, as well as about the active marketing role in the processes of analysing the identification of clients’ needs and the approaches to the needs’ realization. Special emphasis is put on the business operations of trading companies, which always represent a crucial bond in the producer - customer relationship. Therefore, the acquired knowledge from the area of marketing channels, which are applied by the main participants on the market: producers, trading companies and customers, i.e. consumers, does enable our students to understand both the nature of the functioning of the business relations among the subjects mentioned, and the characteristics of the relations and their role in the modern exchange of goods and services as well.

However, trade marketing provides a detailed insight into the marketing concepts, which are vital to successful functioning of trading companies. If we take into account the fact that only a small number of retail chains has a large share on European, i.e. the world market, then we can clearly see the importance of the role of marketing, as creative methodology in market performance, in the creation and maintenance of a competitive position of these companies. Communication and negotiation of trading companies with their surroundings represent a key link of establishing and maintaining a favourable marketing position, and for those reasons special attention is paid to this topic, within the course Trade marketing.

The field of e-commerce is also very important nowadays, as well as good knowledge of the developments in the area of international economics, since these are the areas without which a serious approach to consumers and their needs’ realization cannot be imagined. Lectures within this study programme motivate students to think about and become interested in the area of marketing and trading business, so that they could implement their skills and the acquired knowledge in practice. Workshops, through which students work with experts from the areas of retail and wholesale business and marketing and consulting agencies, provide opportunities for these representatives to meet our students’ skills and qualities. Internship, which is obligatory for all the students of Faculty of Business, including the students of this study programme, provides a potential employer with a deep insight of our students’ capacities, and after the internship, the students can start their employment process.

The aim of study programme Marketing and trade is to enable students to perform a range of professional activities, and, among them, business within the field of: product and brand management, the organization of propaganda campaigns and marketing research, as well as within the field of: the management of the procurement and sales of trading companies, export and import management, etc.

WHAT MAKES STUDY PROGRAMME MARKETING AND TRADE DIFFERENT?

As in the case of the study programme Business Economics, the syllabus and curriculum of the study programme Marketing and Trade complies with the principles of the Bologna Declaration. The implementation and usage of ECTS has enabled a complete mobility of our students in both our country and around Europe and the world. Motivating students to develop their personal and business skills is in the focus of cooperation and work process between teachers and students. Moreover, these are the activities we actively work on through lectures and practical classes on one hand, and through workshops and numerous extracurricular activities organised by our professors and teaching assistants on the other hand.
  • Constant learning of two foreign languages (English, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian and Chinese), with the possibility of acquiring internationally recognised certificates in: English language proficiency (British Council), Spanish language proficiency (DELE), and Italian language proficiency (PLIDA).
  • Acquiring skills in: promotion, communication, negotiation, teamwork and leadership does represent a continuous process in which the students of the study programme Marketing and Trade are involved. For future experts in the area of trade the following is of vital importance: the knowledge of adequate negotiating models, affinities regarding business communication form, and the development of personal skills which suit your character. The course Career and Business Skills Development opens useful, creative space in which students explore and develop their personal and business skills.
The students of this study programme improve expertise in the area of marketing management, trade business, sales and market research. Our students use the acquired knowledge and improve themselves in professions such as: sales manager, brand manager, PR manager, procurement manager.

This study programme provides interactive classes, which mean a constant, active involvement of students in the teaching process. Our idea is to motivate students to contribute to the teaching process, especially via discussions, debates, problems’ analyses, illustrations, and practical examples.
