History & mission

College of Economics and Computer Science (WSEI)

The College of Economics and Computer Science (WSEI) was founded in 2000, and simultaneously entered the register of non-state institutions of higher education. WSEI was founded by an initiative of Consulting and Training Institute Ltd, a well-established consulting and training company in Cracow. The Institute was backed by their stronghold in industry-orientation which also drove them to develop the career focused academic programs that are now offered at WSEI.

WSEI has always actively delved in the industry and business sector, with an active Board  of Industry Advisors and multiple partnerships with successful companies, business leaders as well as industry and professional organizations.
