Measuring quality of education is one of the most important issues of the Universities management. The final result of the good quality evaluation gives precise guidelines of improvements and what should be done to increase efficiency in the high education productivity, whose target is to deliver knowledge and skills to students and future academic individuals as base of the society overall development. Of course, this production (knowledge as output) requires certain investments of resources (teachers, equipment, conditions), that can be treated as input. In such manner, measuring the output/input ratio, using specific LP technique known as Data Envelopment Analysis can give perspective of efficiency of the study process. The application includes precise input/output model represented in all courses within the analyzed study program that collect all real input resources and all real output indicators done by complex survey. In such an environment, the result is represented in efficient and nonefficient courses within the study program. Through a comprehensive review of the results, discussion is done for the reasons of inefficiency. In addition, using DEA perception, concrete guidelines are proposed for management in order to optimize and increase efficiency to the non-efficient detected courses.
