The University is led by the Rector, who is elected by an extended academic board for a five-year period, and by University administration appointed by the rector and composed of vice-rectors for academic affairs, research, social and administrative work, international affairs and network-based information activities, development programmes, and security. University governance is based on the following principles:
- All university services and officials report to the Rector as the head of the University;
- The Rector discharges his/her duties delegating part of responsibility to the executive office (the University administration)
Management decisions are implemented both vertically and horizontally, i.e. the rector and his/her team ensure the overall, end-to-end operation of all University units and divisions as a whole, whereas other more specific questions are dealt with on other University levels.
