Erasmus exchange at UM

Maribor, the seat of one of the four Slovene universities, was first mentioned in historical documents as a town in the early year 1257. The beginnings of higher education in Maribor are closely connected to Anton Martin Slomšek, the bishop of the Lavantine diocese in St. Andraž in Carinthia. The bishop moved the seat of the diocese to Maribor in 1859 and opened a new seminary and religious school in the city. This was the first institution of higher education in Maribor and a forerunner of the present day university.The first institution of the present-day university (the Faculty of Theology does not form a part of the University of Maribor) was the School of Economics and Commerce, which was founded in 1959 and offered a two-year programme of study. In 1961 the Association of Institutions of Higher Education in Maribor was formed. The organizational model of the Association and its relations with the faculties and its institutions was similar to the traditional model of university organization. After the individual schools developed into faculties, it was only a matter of time before the Association of Institutions of Higher Education became a university. The Assembly of the Socialist Republic of Slovenia confirmed the university status of the institutions of higher education in Maribor in 1975.

          Faculty of Economics and Business
          Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
