Abstract

As part of the classical university, the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration of the University of Tartu in Estonia has excellent opportunities for offering academic economic education. Despite the long-standing tradition of teaching economics, it has been necessary in the past 15 years to thoroughly reform curricula and organization of economic education and increase educators’ knowledge and motivation. This is because of the change in the economic system in Estonia as well as because a single European area of higher education has emerged. The Faculty of Economics and Business Administration has developed systems of ensuring and improving the quality of tuition and research. Competition for student places as well as international evaluation commissions’ high evaluations indicate that these systems work efficiently.
