About us:

Established by Royal Decree on April 6, 1913, under the name of the Academy of High Commercial and Industrial Studies, the Bucharest University of Economic Studies is celebrating a century of existence.
Throughout its existence, our university has successfully overcome all the obstacles arising from the transformations that the Romanian society has undergone, the ebbs and flows of history also influencing our academic community.

The University has always had eminent students who, upon graduation, became exceptional professionals in every economic and social domain, both in Romania and abroad. Today, there are 22,684 students enrolled in Bachelor’s, Master’s, Doctoral, Postgraduate and Postdoctoral study programmes. In its centennial history, ASE Bucharest has moulded more than 300,000 professionals, who take pride in having graduated from our University.

Due to the endeavours and dedication of the academic and administrative staff, as well as of its students, the Bucharest University of Economic Studies is now a research intensive university, institutionally accreditted by ARACIS (the Romanian Agency for Quality Assurance in Higher Education), which has granted a high confidence rating to our University. This standing honors us and determines us to resort to university management strategies and programmes that would allow us to capitalize on our tradition and prestige so as to rank among internationally competitive universities.

Over time, the Bucharest University of Economic Studies has conferred the degree of Doctor Honoris Causa to a series of great national and international scientific and political personalities, who have significantly contributed to the development of Economic Sciences and economic higher education. Our University takes great pride in having conferred the degree of Doctor Honoris Causa to Nobel Prize Laureates Lawrence Klein (1980), James McGill Buchanan Jr. (1986) and Joseph Stiglitz (2001), as well as to internationally renowned scientists Anghel Rugină (the most famous Romanian economist living abroad) and Philip Kotler (the father of modern Marketing).
