The Department for Business Administration in Foreign Languages (UNESCO Chair) was created in 1995 as a result of a convention between the UNESCO and the Bucharest University of Economic Studies (ASE) entitled “Formation et Recherches Appliquées au Développement de l’Entreprise des Pays en Conversion Economique”. Since its establishment, the Department has dedicated its efforts and resources towards achieving the main UNESCO objectives through its educational programmes offered only in foreign languages, research projects, scientific events and other initiatives. At university level, the UNESCO Department for Business Administration is part of the Faculty of Business Administration in Foreign Languages (FABIZ), ensuring more than 75% of the faculty members that teach in its study programmes.

The mission of the UNESCO Department for Business Administration is three-folded:

Education

Providing the most relevant and up-to-date educational programmes in the field of business administration but also tackling behavioural and info-economics

Research

Integrating all members of the department in high- performing research teams and running impactful research projects

Relationship with society

Developing mutual beneficial partnerships between the academic community and the economic, social and cultural environment
