For the society to become sustainable, the universities must become themselves an eloquent example regarding the promotion of the sustainable development concept. Since the activity in the tertiary education is of a socio-cultural nature, measuring the efficiency in this domain is very a difficult process that supposes the elaboration of a set of performance indicators, in view of growing the quality of the services offered by the universities, but also their financing. The chosen theme is a very actual one, since neither now, on a world level, was managed to create some indicators to measure the exact efficiency of the tertiary education, the process being at its full expansion. The activity of a tertiary education institution is efficient provided its graduates are capable to satisfy the ongoing needs of the labour market, this way contributing not only to the personal well-being, but also to the society's.
