AFMKU began from an idea in 1998 which was turned into a blueprint by the founding fathers. In the next step, upon ministerial accreditation, the institution was officially established (2000) and began functioning in rented buildings at several locations in Krakow.
Now, it is a thriving and vibrant academic centre based in the second largest city in Poland, Krakow, the city renowned for an exceptionally rich academic tradition going back over 600 years. Within 7 faculties, we offer 30 fields of study to nearly 9 000 students.
One of the pillars of the development of the university is international co-operation. This area of institutional planning entails a variety of initiatives, most of which comprise starting and maintaining contacts with foreign partners, joint research projects, exchange of academic staff and students as well as organization of academic conferences, meetings with foreign officials, researchers and diplomats.
AFMKU has signed over 100 agreements with foreign higher education institutions and has maintained linkages with various academic entities in such countries as: Austria, Belarus, Brazil, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Lithuania, Morocco, the Netherlands, Portugal, Kazakhstan, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, Turkey, Ukraine and the USA.
