The Faculty of Economics and Management employs 115 teaching and scientific staff including 28 independent scientists having the post-doctorial degree (habilitation) and professorial titles. Besides, there are employed 16 administration people, 6 librarians and 22 technical and support staff.
The rapid growth in the number of the scientific staff and the increase of the scientific research level are owed to the granting to the Faculty in 1986 the right to confer doctorial degrees in economics, in1993 to post-doctoral degrees in economics and in 1998 to doctoral degrees in the field of management.
Apart from educating students under full-time and part-time studies systems, the Faculty has developed the education of employees working for the national economy. This type of education was given the form of post-diploma studies.
Nicolas Copernicus University in collaboration with Dominican University offers two-year Executive Master of Business Administration studies. The courses within the MBA studies are run by UMK and Dominican University lecturers in English and Polish. The Faculty of Economic Sciences and Management is considered to possess the best facilities out of all the schools of economics all over Poland.
