The wish for information has become a need for the society's members ever since primary school, which makes education systems adapt fast in order to ensure the new information requirements as well as the quality required for the present stage in the society evolution. The education issues have never been so easy to solve and, in the digital era, where everything develops fast, the education systems must take these particularities into account. The modern means of access to information systems ensure the global support for documentation and knowledge enrichment regardless of the activity field.
We cannot refer to the present issues of the education systems, especially regarding higher education, without addressing the requirements of the Declaration of Bologna which aims at better cooperation of all European states regarding education policies. The principles of the Bologna Process consider the following: students and teachers' mobility in the unique European space, insurance of university autonomy, students' active participation in education management, public responsibility of the quality of higher education and expert training in different fields according to the present development stage. For these reasons, the authorities of each signing country are free to adopt their own policies in the field of education. Nevertheless, these policies must comply with the Common European requirements.
A decisive factor for the students and teaching staff's mobility and for the acknowledgement of examinations and professional qualifications is the higher quality of education systems at European level. In the society’s present stage of development, marked by transition to the digital era, it is highly important to ensure the quality requirements for higher education, and in this context the management skills can positively influence the quality of public or private higher education or could have a negative influence leading to compromise the good functioning of the education institution.
Our university has become competitive due to our ability to adapt to all needs of the socio-economic industry as well as to the education and consultancy markets.
At present, we can speak of a real education system of 17 faculties with 29 bachelor programmes and 30 master programmes in the university centres from Bucharest, Constantza, Braşov, Sibiu, Cluj Napoca and Timişoara, with fully-equipped university facilities for perfect modern education. In the university's 22 years of existence, about 30,000 people have graduated and at the present moment there are about 19, 000 undergraduates.
There are several elements that highlight this statement. I would like to start with the fact that we have hundreds of graduates working in prestigious institutions and companies in the USA, Canada, Switzerland, Germany, Holland, and so on. On the other hand, our students and teaching staff take part in the "ERASMUS" mobility programmes in universities from Italy, Lithuania, Belgium, and Germany.
"Dimitrie Cantemir" Christian university is the founder of the Euro - Mediteraneean University based in Slovenia oriented towards master studies and created exclusively from European Union funds.
It is also worth mentioning the affiliation to EUA, the most powerful Association of European Universities as well as the bilateral relations with tens of universities from abroad, among which the most important is Robert Schumann University of Strasbourg.
The education offer comprises bachelor studies in full mode and low attendance mode, as well as master studies.
We refer to high school graduates of the present year and equally to all high school graduates of previous years in order to attend a faculty or a second faculty having in view the fact that only 11% of the adult population has postgraduate qualifications.
The president, PhD Professor Momcilo Luburici and the undersigned, founding members of the "Dimitrie Cantemir" Christian University, wanted from the very beginning to lay the grounds for a university where, on the one hand, there is a state of free spirit and respect and on the other; there are the necessary equipment and logistics that we had never benefited from. The conclusion is that we have succeeded in achieving this goal.
"The great Cantemir family" which numbers now 50,000 graduates, students, master students, teaching staff with their beloved ones, about one million people - parents, brothers, grandparents, wives, children - defines intelligent people who respect the values we promote along the academic years with the positive role in spreading moral values in society.
Students benefit by a in-house club and a sports club for their free time. Also, there are two great bookshops, a library and a reading room. At the same time, they can meditate at the university chapel.
We ensure medical service between 8.00-20.00 in a fully equipped surgery and three medical staff - one doctor and two nurses.
Besides the students' health, we are interested in their physical safety and we ensure protection around the clock within a service provided by 20 qualified personnel. Thus, total safety, both physical and mental, is our priority and it is highly important in the present society.
Thus, for the same tax charged by other state-owned or private universities, an average sum of 450 euros/year, we are offering a series of extra services besides the undisputable value of the certificate issued by the "Dimitrie" Cantemir" Christian University.
