Since what I have seen and heard in 2 years of university, FABBV is one of the hardest ones and in the same time, well recognized from ASE.
Now I want to talk about the English section. The professors are really good, some of them with high position in the society and a baggage full of experience.
I find studying in English more accessible, the terms are easier to be remembered and there are plenty of books from where you can learn.
What I like the most is that I will be capable to work both in Romanian and English, without any problem. The big companies are recruiting more from this
faculty, considering English a must nowadays.
Interesting courses: Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Accounting, Money, Services and Banking products, Corporate Finance
What I don’t like: There are a few professors with years of experience in the economic field, but with a language level not that high.
What I don’t like from the university in general: They do not inform us about the opportunities we have as students (Internships abroad, study visits etc) that are fully funded by UE
I recently graduated from FABIZ – Faculty of Business Administration, one of the faculties from the Academy of Economic Studies.
After three years of university, I can say that the courses taught at FABIZ cover different topics. Even if this gives you a broader overview over business administration, the courses are done in a “superficial” way. The students only learn the basic information.
The majority of teachers are well prepared with a strong background. The courses are taught in a non-formal way, encouraging the interaction with and between the students. Even so, there are still old teachers who don’t agree with these practices.
The building of my faculty is a modern one, separated from the rest of the universities, located in the city centre. It’s equipped with modern technology (whiteboards, projectors, high speed computers).
The best thing about the university is that all the courses are thought either in English, French or German and we have a lot of international students.
Overall, I would recommend the university, because I believe it has a different perspective when it comes to the educational methods.
The faculty is a good one in terms of cheap accommodation, cheap food and student networks. Some of the teachers are very well prepared, but some could do better. The teaching methods could really be improved and some new resources would do no harm. The university could also use a whole new infrastructure. Overall, ASE is a good university, where people are friendly, teachers are pretty good and where you can get a good education as well as having a good time, but it needs some new resources and a renovation, in order to be in line with the top universities in Europe.
I cherish the people that I have met here and also around 5 professors, but this is pretty much everything. The classrooms are really old, everything is pretty old, you don’t learn new things or stuff that is relevant for the actual context of the world. If you want a place where you will have a lot of spare time for your personal projects, this is for you.
This year I’ll finish at the faculty of marketing at ASE and I believe that these 3 years were the best of my life. First of all, let’s talk about student life: plenty of time for parties and for whatever you want to do because the exams are easy to pass (you just have to read a bit). Second of all, this university made me how I am today, and I am grateful for that. It helped me to grow a lot and made me understand that marketing is everything. Whenever you are traveling or thinking about something, the marketing influences you somehow.
I feel sad because almost nothing is practical (only theoretical) and you are learning from books made in 2000.
You have to choose the Faculty of Cybernetics, Statistics and Economic Informatics if you want to become a statistical analyst, because it offers you knowledge from theoretical development to research on applied economic problems.
The Bucharest Academy of Economic Studies is by far the best university in Romania specializing in Economics, Business and everything around them.
The quality of the education is really high and a degree from this university weighs a lot in Romania, given its prestige. However, in my opinion, a lot of things need to be improved. Although things here are way better than at other prestigious universities in Romania, they can definitely be better. On a cost / benefits analysis, the tuition fees are too high for the facilities it offers. ASE has many buildings, but only two of them are decent. There are some modern classrooms in the others as well, but they are usually sponsored by a private company and they’re locked most of the time. Basically, you must be very lucky to get to study in those classrooms. The ordinary classrooms don’t have a video projector, which is more than necessary. The teachers are well prepared and mostly open minded, but from time to time you can also see some frustrated teachers who left their mind back in the times of communism.
Fortunately, ASE has a very good feedback programme and at the end of every semester the students can fill it 100% anonymously. However, measures based on the feedbacks are only taken on new teachers, not on the ones who worked here for a lot of time.
I highly recommend this university if you want to study economic studies in Romania, because it’s the only decent option. I still hope, though, that they will want to offer something more than decent and that they will take all the necessary measures to come to the 21st century.
P.S.: The teachers need to check their emails more than once a month, they need to learn to answer those emails as well and some of the secretaries really need to learn some manners!
P.P.S.: I also hope they will take care of their English websites and that they will try to attract more foreign students.
P.P.P.S.: Again, I also hope that they will try to sign Erasmus partnerships with more universities. At the faculty I’m studying, there are only three or four options. It’s not fair and it seems pretty ignorant.
I’m a student at the Faculty of Management since 2015. In this summer I will graduate from this Faculty and I will continue with the studies in this University because the teachers are very well prepared, the information that is being taught is updated in the present and the chances of hiring you or opening up your own business are very high.
In conclusion the ACADEMY OF ECONOMIC STUDIES – ASE is the best University in the economic area in Romania.
