referred to economic and business faculties, which increasingly aim their activities toward business

companies have represented the main forms of these actions. Main goal of the analysis in the paper
have been the transformations in this direction carried out at the Faculty of Economics (University of
Belgrade), one of the leading higher education institutions in the region in the field of economics.
