Singidunum University has established the Institute as a separate organizational unit, bearing in mind the enhancement of its own resources and growing needs of the society and the labour market of the Republic of Serbia for a respectable, multi-functional scientific institution. The global economic crisis, economies in transition, European integration, global economy, technological progress and social changes, pose new challenges to our economy and society, seeking answers and solutions, which are often very complex and time-limited. Bearing in mind its social responsibility, Singidunum University through its Institute participates in finding the best ways in which individuals, organizations and the country as a whole needs to go on their way towards a better tomorrow. This is achieved through transfer of knowledge, skills and techniques of the employees and partners of Singidunum University to all those who need new insights, advice and immediate assistance to overcome their short-term and long-term assignments, and make and achieve long-term plans.
However, this itinerary is not one-way; it is just as intense in the opposite direction. Experiences and practices of entrepreneurs, companies and business systems we cooperate with, their problems, needs, ups and downs, are a valuable treasure trove of case studies that will be studied at all academic years at our study programmes. Finally, the mission of the Institute is to be a great hub for the exchange of knowledge and experiences, identifying problems and possible solutions, and providing services to meet the needs of all parties involved.
