About RAU
The Romanian-American University was founded with the purpose of promoting the American progressive educational values combined with the rich internationally recognized academic traditions of the Romanian educational system. The founder succeeded in bringing to Romania the US higher education principles that have as support the general model the American society:
  • the efficient organization of the activity
