At its Board meeting on September 14, EURASHE welcomed two new affiliate member organisations: Wült Institute of Business and Technology in Berlin, Germany and University of Applied Sciences in Ferizaj, Kosovo.
The Wült Institute of Business & Technology strives to change and improve lives through higher education by enabling students to maximise their professional and personal potential. The institute’s faculties of Business and Technology provides student-centred support services that are personal, responsive and geared toward assisting students in achieving their educational goals. Caring, highly trained faculty and staff create innovative online educational programs with challenging curriculums that focus on affordable, quality instruction and promote life-long learning and success. Though Wült is firmly rooted in the European Union with an administrative office in Berlin and strategic business units in Malta and Estonia, the Institute has a global student body in more than 40 countries around the world.
University of Applied Sciences in Ferizaj (UASF), as the only applied science provider of the higher education public institution, was established on July 2015 by the Parliament of the Republic of Kosovo following a 40-year tradition of professional and applied science education as Faculty of Applied Sciences in Ferizaj, part of University of Prishtina. UASF is accredited by the Kosovo Accreditation Agency with an institutional accreditation as a University of Applied Sciences in Ferizaj. UAS indicates its mission to provide quality education, prepare qualified professionals and educated and responsible citizens, to develop a professional career and lead a productive life.
“I am glad to welcome our two new affiliate members from Germany and Kosovo, and look forward to fruitful cooperation in implementing different activities in the field of higher education’, – says Michal Karpíšek, Secretary General of EURASHE.
Currently, EURASHE has 61 members which represent more than 650 higher education institutions around the world. Last year EURASHE joined five new members from Hungary, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Pakistan and Armenia.
