Faculty of Management (FoM), University of Warsaw is the oldest management school in Poland. It was originally established in 1972 in the course of political modernization of the non-market economy, when skills in areas such as project planning, team management, negotiations or intrapreneurship were perceived as necessary to successfully transfer and implement Western technologies and improve the performance of state-owned enterprises. After the economic transformation of 1989, FoM became the leading management school in Poland, benefiting from its previous ties with key European and US business schools, and letting the emerging managerial and entrepreneurial classes get in touch with up-to-date management knowledge. In the 1990s, FoM lecturers participated in a special knowledge transfer program, established by Harvard Business School, Kellogg Management School of Northwestern University, Sloan Management School of MIT, Stanford University and Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania, which helped improve course curricula, teaching materials, didactic methods and contents of the education.
FoM has the “A” scientific category based on the governmental evaluation of research institutions, which confirms the research excellence, internationalization and relations with the business community. FoM studies in management, finance and accounting have national accreditations, and the quality of its MBA program was confirmed by the international AMBA accreditation.
