On September 2, 2019, the Wrocław University of Economics successfully completed the process of EUA-IEP institutional evaluation. This is the undoubted success of our University, because we are the
third university in Poland, and the first humanistic which has successfully passed the EUA-IEP evaluation procedure.
The IEP Steering Committee submitted a final evaluation report
on our University along with
recommendations for changes. Within one year, WUE is required to prepare a short progress report,with brief explanation how our institution has addressed the key recommendations given in the
evaluation report. WUE may use the EUA-IEP logo for the next 5 years.

the establishment of a five-person evaluation team whose task was to provide comprehensive assistance to the institution in the evaluation process, including two on-site visits and depth analysis
of the self-evaluation report. The WUE sent this self-evaluation report, covering all aspects of the functioning of our University, divided into six areas, in February 2019.
