Faculty of Information Systems and Technologies of the University of Donja Gorica


University of Donja Gorica has the total of 75 employees, consisting of 35 professors, 28 associates, and 12 administrative staff. In terms of technical conditions UDG has a new integral building with area of 16000 m2, five large amphitheaters that can seat up to 300 people each with all the accompanying equipment (projectors, monitors, computers, speakers,microphones).

Several smaller classrooms, large computer rooms and in addition a mobile computer lab (Apple Lab), library, cafeteria, gallery, offices, and areas suitable for large and small meetings and conferences. Faculty of International Economics, Finance and Business, has extensive international cooperation experience with other universities and with numerous partners in the industry sector through either education or implementation of several international projects.

Faculty of Information Systems and Technologies was founded in 2008, and currently has around 150 students on undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral studies.

One of the main concepts of studies at the Faculty of Information Systems and Technologies is interdisciplinarity. The initial premise of such an approach is an understanding that just as “economy can’t be explained by economy alone”, so the information technology knowledge should be acquired for the purposes of direct application and facilitation of solving the real-life business problems. Those studies are for high-school graduates who want to have an entrepreneurial approach towards their own knowledge and skills. Thus UDG is creating enabling conditions and raising the quality of teaching so that students can acquire knowledge, skills and character that enable him/her to work in any country of the world, not only Montenegro.

The current generation of students will retire in 50-60 years. No one knows what will happen and what will change in the world until then. But it is certain that such a vortex increasingly requires not only technologies, but fundamental and interdisciplinary knowledge. To graduate high-school students, this Faculty will offer knowledge that will have practical applicability in all areas of business. The knowledge of informatics and IT technologies is sought in the market especially in the fields of economy and business. The job market requires economists with knowledge in the area of information technologies or IT specialists who are able to apply their knowledge directly to economy and business. The Faculty of Information Systems and Technologies will educate young people in a way to enable them to meet such demands of the job market. Those studies will at the same time ensure good positioning of students at the international job market. The program of the studies is compatible with similar programs of many European and world universities, primarily with the study program for Information Technologies at the University of Albany in the State of New York.
