National Agency for Quality in Higher Education (NAKVIS) confirmed the accreditation of Alma Mater Europaea as a full university.

(March 21, 2024) "Our longstanding efforts to officially stand alongside other globally recognized educational institutions as a university have come to fruition. By becoming a university, Alma Mater's position in the Slovenian and international community has been solidified, demonstrating the responsibility of teachers and students in meeting the standards and expectations regarding the quality of work, personnel, and organization,"  Professor Dr. Ludvik Toplak, the newly appointed Rector of Alma Mater University.

"Our mission is to develop new programs that are in demand and complementary to existing universities and to produce high-quality personnel competitive in both the domestic and European markets. Alma Mater has set its sights on becoming a center of excellence for Slovenia and the broader Central European region. We will respond to the economy's and public services' needs based on quality, relevance, and rationalization principles," added Dr. Ludvik Toplak. 

The university status of Alma Mater enables its inclusion in specific international associations, membership in which is conditioned by membership in the national rector's conference.

We are pleased that Alma Mater has also gained recognition from the scientific, academic, and professional communities.
