“The university as a public institution has an obligation towards the entity/state to take care of the quality assurance of higher education and science, which is impossible to achieve without a well-developed internationalization program. Through internationalization, the university could create the core of well-educated experts from different fields educated either at other institutions or with the help of foreign specialist experts at home institution, who will improve the quality of the University work in every respect, “said professor Bokonjic.
