The School maintains international contacts cooperating with almost 300 foreign universities, and takes part in research activities conducted in collaboration with foreign centres. Each year foreign academics visit the School to attend seminars and conferences, give lectures and participate in joint research projects. SGH History The history of the Warsaw School of Economics (SGH) begins in 1906 with the foundation of the Private Courses of Commerce for Men. In the XX century the School underwent numerous changes in its structure and teaching programme. It changed its name a few times, too. The School’s present name (Szkoła Główna Handlowa, literally meaning Main School of Commerce) emerged for the first time in 1933. The outbreak of World War II did not stop the School’s activity, which, under conspiracy, continued with its pre-war programme. After World War II, under the pressure of the new political system the School Senate approved its nationalisation, trying, however, to maintain the independent teaching programme. In 1949 Polish authorities changed the name into Central School of Planning and Statistics and announced it the first socialist university in Poland, with centrally established programme and organisational principles. It was not until the political change in 1989 that the School was in a position to officially carry out new programme and organisational reforms in order to comply with market economy requirements. The milestone of this process was the return to the traditional name of the School – Warsaw School of Economics (SGH) in 1991 and a reform of the education system, so that all our students can now pursue individual courses of study. In 2006 we introduced the new Statue, which declares that our educational system is based on the Bologna Declaration. Graduates Among the famous pre-war alumni was Stefan Starzyński, an economist and politician, a mayor of Warsaw from 1934 till World War II. One of the most renowned SGH graduates is Professor Leszek Balcerowicz – Deputy Prime Minister in the first non-communist government and the president of the National Bank of Poland. The long list of graduates includes member of the European Commission professor Danuta Hübner, former speaker of the Sejm cabinet of the Polish Parliament Marek Borowski, president of Business Center Club Marek Goliszewski, former Minister of Finance Grzegorz Kołodko, former Prime Minister Józef Oleksy, former Ministers of Foreign Affairs Dariusz Rosati and Andrzej Olechowski, diplomat Jan Truszczyński and co-founder of the Warsaw Stock Exchange Wiesław Rozłucki. Artists: Sława Przybylska, Jeremi Przybora, Stanisław Dygat and Maciej Niesiołowski. Athletes: Teresa Sukniewicz, Ewa Kłobukowska and Grażyna Rabsztyn. Studies, business and fun There are over 40 students’ organizations at SGH – among them clubs focused on coaching, real estate, sport management, marketing, IT, negotiations… There is also a choir, dance club, sport association, tourist organization, movie club and many more. They make the university teem with life and activity almost incessantly. Warsaw School of Economics offers its students a possibility to gain professional experience by cooperating with multiple companies and organizations gathered in SGH Corporate Partners Club – among them are Deloitte, EY, KPMG, PwC, McKinsey & Company, Procter & Gamble, L’OREAL, Mastercard, UniCredit and many other. Every student has a chance to complete an internship at these companies. Students of SGH tend to win regularly international competitions organized by companies and institutions which cooperate with the School.

The university fell upon hard times when the occupation of Kraków by Austria-Hungary during the Partitions of Poland threatened its existence. In 1817, soon after the creation of the Duchy of Warsaw the university renamed as Jagiellonian University to commemorate Poland's Jagiellonian dynasty, which first revived the Kraków University in the past. The structure of the Jagiellonian University is unique in Poland. Among the 15 faculties, there are three which comprise the Collegium Medicum: The Faculties of Medicine and Dentistry, Pharmacy, and Health Protection. These three were separated from the University in 1950, following the Soviet model, and reincorporated in the Alma Mater in1993. Until recently, the Jagiellonian was the only Polish university with medical faculties, although currently the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń also has them. The Jagiellonian University educates on the three levels: Ordinary, Masters, and Doctoral, following the principles of the Bologna Process. There are well over a hundred degrees and specialties available in Polish, as well as over a dozen in English. The European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) has been implemented in all courses and specialties, enabling trouble-free linking of studies at UJ with studies in other European countries. Together with the development of co-operation with a number of universities worldwide, this has enabled a great increase in student mobility. [-]

Faculty of International and Political Studies at Jagiellonian University

Poland Kraków October 2016

The Jagiellonian University, founded in 1364, is the oldest university in Poland and the second oldest institution of higher education in Central and Eastern Europe. It was here that the Cracow School of the Law of Nations was developed in the 15th century (an early form of contemporary international law). Then, at the beginning of the 19th century, the Department of Political Skills was established at our university. After Poland regained independence, the School of Political… [+] Science (SPS) was established within the Faculty of Law in 1920. It was based on the Free School of Political Science (École Libre des Sciences Politiques) in Paris. The activity of the SPS was halted by the onset of WW II, and underground education was organized in its place. Although the school resumed its operation in 1946, it was closed by communist authorities in the late 1940s. In 1969, the Institute of Political Science (IPS) was established at the Faculty of Law. In the year 2000, the Faculty of International and Political Studies was founded. It was divided into four units: (1) the Institute of Political Science (mentioned above); (2) the Institute of Ethnic Studies and Polish Diaspora (established in 1972); (3) the Institute of Regional Studies; and (4) the School of Polish Language and Culture (operating as part of the faculty until 2005). One of the main purposes for establishing the new Faculty was to combine academic and didactic efforts undertaken by various groups of academic researchers at the university in the field of political and international developments – as seen from legal, historical, philosophical, sociological, and cultural perspectives. With time, new units were established within the faculty, often as a result of the reorganization of previously existing units. In 2004, the Institute of American Studies and Polish Diaspora (which also included the Interfacultative Department of American Studies, founded in 1991) and the Institute of European Studies (which emerged from the Interfacultative Department of European Studies, established in 1993) were founded. In 2005, the Institute of Russian and East European Studies was founded. In 2005, the Division of Ukrainian Studies (established in 2000) became an independent unit of the Faculty. Pursuant to a decree issued by the President of the Jagiellonian University in 2006, the Centre for Chinese Language and Culture, otherwise known as "The Confucius Institute in Krakow," become part of the faculty. In 2008, the Centre for Holocaust Studies was founded out of the Holocaust Studies Unit established in 1996. In 2010, the Division of the Middle and Far East (established in 2000) became the Institute of the Middle and Far East. In the same year, the Centre for Lithuanian Studies was established. In 2012 the Centre for Quantitative Research in Political Science was established on the initiative of the Faculty of International and Political Studies and the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science. Also in 2012, the Jagiellonian University Polish Research Centre was established in London with the help of researchers from the Faculty. In 2013 the Institute for Regional Studies was reformed as the Institute of Intercultural Studies. The Jagiellonian Centre for Migration Studies was also opened that year. In 2014, the Jagiellonian Centre for African Studies was established.
