2021 at the UP Faculty of Management will be the year, when we, both employees and students, will elect a new Dean who will lead our institution for the next 4 years. Namely, at its 37th correspondence session, which took place from May 28th 2021 to May 31st 2021, the UP FM Senate adopted a resolution on calling regular elections of the UP FM Dean, and in addition to the resolution, the UP FM Senate also adopted a schedule for the implementation of individual election tasks and the candidacy form, which are annexed to the resolution.
