The University of Shkodra
The University "Luigj Gurakuqi" of Shkodra has long been the major institution of higher education in the region, especially in the technical and scientific disciplines. However, the university has a complete void in the field of market economics and management. In 1992, the university received permission from the government to initiate the development of the Faculty of Economics, with responsibilities for emphasizing market economics, management, and business administration.
Mr. Menduh Derguti, Rector of the University of Shkodra in 1992, specifically asked the University of Nebraska - Lincoln to help develop its curriculum in market economics and business management. Rector Derguti attended the training seminars provided by the UNL team in September, 1992. As a result, the current Rector, Dr. Gjovalin Kolombi, is quite enthusiastic to establish quality programs at the Faculty of Economics.
