We have entered the new academic year 2023/2024

A new academic year has started at the UP Faculty of Management, bringing fresh wind and a new start for many students. We witnessed an exciting start to the 2023/2024 academic year, welcoming new students and greeting the already enrolled students as they returned to the halls of the Faculty. The University of Primorska (UP) hosted the traditional reception of the new students, this time at the UP Faculty of Management. The meeting brought together mayors of local municipalities, representatives of the Students' Organisation of the University of Primorska (SUPU) and the media.


The Rector of UP, Prof. Klavdija Kutnar addressed the students and expressed her wish that they would continuously present new challenges for UP with their innovative ideas. The full speech is available here. Then the Mayor of Koper, Aleš Bržan, welcomed the students and pointed out that this year the Municipality of Koper is also a co-organiser of the StartUP event, which further strengthens the cooperation. The President of the UP Student Council was absent, so University of Primorska student Žiga Leban read out her speech, which was especially dedicated to international students and their welcome. At the end of the event, the Dean of UPFM, Assoc. Prof. Tatjana Horvat, welcomed and addressed the participants and stated that "With your presence, you bring freshness to the university space. Each of you is unique. Make the most of every opportunity for growth and development." After the opening speeches, the Faculty started with welcome speeches and the start of the academic year.

Dear students, new paths are opening up before you, paths that will require effort, perseverance, and commitment. Our Faculty is a place where you will have the opportunity to explore your interests, and develop and grow as individuals. The academic year ahead of you promises many challenges, opportunities, and fun.

The new academic year at the College is marked by expectations, enthusiasm, and a sense of community. Students are ready to embark on a journey of knowledge that will enrich them and open doors to new opportunities. The Faculty remains committed to its values of education, research, and innovation and will continue to support students on their academic journey.
