Mission Statement

AMU`s mission is to advance knowledge through quality research and teaching in partnership with business and public services. The University is a centre of academic excellence, where research and teaching are mutually sustaining and where the context within which research is conducted and knowledge is sought and applied is international as much as regional and national. We continuously extend and update research programs and study curricula, with emphasis on their interdisciplinary and international nature. As a strategic partner in Central Europe, AMU aspires to contribute to the region`s economic growth, social development and environmental sustainability. We align our principles with those of the Great Charter of European Universities. We aim to strengthen ties with EU Member States and embark on new research initiatives.
