The story about modern education on the territory of Serbia started in the year 2005 when the Faculty of Information Technology was founded. The development was gradual but steady, and in time our role in the higher education in Serbia has grown stronger. In 2010 the newly founded Faculty of Management and Faculty of Digital Arts joined the Faculty of Information Technology, and the three faculties formed Metropolitan University. By closely following the trends of the modern labor market, we have recognized its needs and started to provide quality education to our students in various areas of information technology. It is little known that last year more than a billion people around the world studied online. The classrooms of the future follow us everywhere we go, as we are only a click away from “walking” into the classroom from anywhere we like. Metropolitan University is the 1st university to offer to study through the eLearning system in Serbia. This mode of studying covers all four years of studies. The degrees which online students obtain are completely equal to the ones earned in the traditional studies, both in terms of earned qualifications and the quality of gained knowledge.
Other than traditional study mode, Metropolitan University allows distance learning through the internet. Currently, Metropolitan University has more than 60 % of the total students who study online from various parts of the world: Greece, Austria, Spain, Germany, the United States of America, Mexico, the United Arab Emirates. According to the higher education law, degree earned online is equal to the degree earned traditionally, both in terms of the knowledge gained and qualification earned. Multimedia lectures and tutorials, digital literature and material for exam preparation are available to students 24-hours a day, which allows employed students and students who cannot attend lectures to successfully study. Our lecturers are available to students through video conferences which means that physical distance does not exclude live communication with lecturers.
