Rector’s Welcome Word
"Access to Success!" (Motto UAO)
"The management team of Agora University of
Oradea assumes transparency as an essential component of quality." (Mission assumed by the rector and his team)
Agora University of Oradea is a higher education institution of private law and public utility, founded in 2000 by Agora Foundation, accredited by ARACIS in 2010 and validated by the Romanian Parliament by Law 59/2012, as a part of national system of higher education in Romania. In 2018 Agora University has been re-accredited by ARACIS within confidence grade.
On 24.04.2012 I was elected rector by all teachers and students of the Agora University of Oradea, the legislature from 2012 to 2016, and in 2016 I was re-elected for the mandate 2016-2020.
Rector legally represents the Agora University of Oradea (UAO) in the National Council of Rectors in relations with the Ministry of National Education and its subordinate entities or advisory (ARACIS, CNATDCU, UEFISCDI etc.), with central and local government, educational institutions and national research and abroad, with domestic and international public bodies.
Although young and small, with two faculties (Faculty of Economics and Faculty of Law and Administration), Agora University of Oradea is extremely dynamic and active. Instead of a quantitative prefer qualitative development. UAO has four bachelor accredited programs: Law (4 years), Local Police (3 years), Management (3 years) and Accounting and Management Information Systems (3 years), as well as three accredited masters programs: Criminal and Forensic Sciences (1 year), Applied Forensic Research (2 years) and Human Resources Management (2 years).
Without false modesty, Agora University of Oradea have some performance difficult to achieve even some old and larger academic institutions: 5 research centers (two international), a publishing house editing 5 international scientific journals in English language (one of which is indexed in ISI Web of Science), 5 international conferences in English, a computer laboratory, a forensic laboratory, three rooms with smart boards for videoconferencing courses, three lecture halls with over 100 seats, platform for e- functional learning, and 10 POS-DRU successfully projects.
UAO was characterized by EUA-IEP team (2014) as "an entrepreneurial university":
EUA-IEP Team about UAO ( PDF): "The team has enjoyed learning about the characteristics of Agora University and its role as an entrepreneurial providerof higher education in the fields of law, management and social science. It has been an interesting experience to discuss with staff, students, and external stakeholders the challenges faced by UAO and the university’s efforts to address constraints and to explore future opportunities. We believe the university has the potential to take successful steps in its next stage of development."
In the period 2012-2018, the Agora University of Oradea has performed a lot of international agreements with many universities from Europe, India and China. Starting the 2019-2020 academic year we intend to extend the internationalization and milestones of a smart university in a new world (with the digitization, digital transformation, AI, 4iR, M-learning etc.).
If you agree a higher quality education, through modern teaching technologies, in full transparency and legality, come with the confidence to Agora University of Oradea.
Success to Access!
Rector of Agora University of Oradea
