UMa issues a new student guide (EN)

The digital version of the Student Guide was made available in the academic year 2011 | 2012. The main reasons for this change are the severe economic situation, and the required budget restraint, to be environmental-friendly and be more attractive and dynamic to our target audience.

The University adopts a matrix organization model based on the interaction between units, vertical structures known as competence centres, and horizontal structures of education, innovation and service rendering.
