Education. SGH Warsaw School of Economics offers many opportunities to study economics and business. Besides Bachelor’s, Master’s and PhD degree programmes, SGH also offers post-graduate and executive studies for people interested in lifelong learning.

Our educational system complies with the Bologna Declaration, which assumes:

•    higher education based on two main cycles: undergraduate studies (Bachelor) geared to the employment market and lasting at least three years and graduate studies (Master), which may be followed by education in the Doctoral School,
•    adoption of the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS),
•    introduction of the European diploma supplement,
•    mobility of students, teachers and researchers,
•    cooperation with regard to quality assurance,
•    the European dimension of higher education.

Research. Traditionally, SGH Warsaw School of Economics has been a centre for scientific research in economics and management. Research projects are carried out by five collegia and result in publication of numerous books, monographies, scripts, coursebooks, articles and research papers, as well as expert opinions for the government, private companies and media alike. Every year, SGH issues a bilingual report (in Polish and English) on the competitiveness of the country’s economy.

International cooperation. SGH has always been open to exchanging knowledge, and sharing educational and research experience with other academic centres. SGH cooperates with over 300 universities all over the world, and takes part in research activities conducted in collaboration with centres abroad. Each year academics from various countries visit SGH to attend seminars and conferences, give lectures and participate in joint research projects. SGH is involved in several international programmes for staff and students alike, including double degree programmes offered in cooperation with 16 partner universities. Every year, nearly 500 SGH students complete parts of their curricula abroad. As the only Polish academic member of CEMS, SGH also offers the prestigious CEMS Master’s in International Management programme. Thanks to SGH membership in the CIVICA alliance, SGH students have both chance to participate in additional international exchanges and special teaching projects conducted jointly with CIVICA universities.
