Since the introduction of the Bologna system of study, the higher education in Montenegro has undergone intensive adaption to the European academic space. This process also revealed systemic problems that are plaguing our higher education institutions.
There are three main providers of higher education in Montenegro:
• University of Montenegro (UoM), a public university founded in 1974, with 18771 students in the school year 2016/17, and 5881 persons employed in the capacity of academic staff;
• Mediteran University, the first private university founded in 2006, with 1601 students and 65 members of academic staff, and
• University Donja Gorica (UDG), founded in 2007, with 2216 students and 168 members of academic staff.
There are also another ten independent higher education institutions that do not have the status of a university, but operate as independent departments - Faculty of Business and Tourism Budva, Faculty of Montenegrin Language and Literature Cetinje, Faculty of Administrative and European Studies, Faculty of International Management in Tourism and Hospitality Miločer, Faculty for Mediterranean and Business Studies Tivat, Faculty of Management Herceg Novi, Faculty of Business Management Bar, Faculty of Business Economics Bar, Faculty of Transport, Communications and Logistics and Maritime Faculty Bar.
