The aim of the project "Efforts to internationalize accounting (in research and in practice) in post-communist countries" is to enhance the attractiveness of the educational offer for students, as well as the scientific excellence of our University research and teaching staff via enabling direct (remote) contact with Prof. Catalin Albu, a European specialist in accounting of post-communist countries.
