Higher education presents main engine of society’s overall progress and development. In this context, Universities are meant to be generators of knowledge and academic force, which can be treated as output of their functioning. It is important to achieve high level of educated and qualified students/future employees that will be able to fit in the real sector and contribute to the collective/personal live. On the other side, it is necessary to invest some specific resources in order of efficient productivity of knowledge – input in the process.
Having this in mind, we can always learn from the past, in
meaning what is invested as input and what is the result,
as output. This paper treats different study programs /
cycles at a specific University as entities, that use specific kind of resources as input and produce knowledge as
output. Linear programming technique application called
DEA (Data Envelopment Analysis) is applied, in order to
show several aspects of efficiency measurement of the
study cycles and their comparison.
