The University of Economics in Bratislava (Slovak: Ekonomická univerzita v Bratislave) is the oldest university of economics in Slovakia.

History[edit]

The university was established in 1940 as a private university under the name Vysoká obchodná škola v Bratislave (College of Commerce in Bratislava), to serve Slovak students because of the closure of colleges and universities in the German-occupied Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia. It was nationalized in 1945 and renamed to Slovenská vysoká škola obchodná (Slovak College of Commerce). It was renamed in 1949 to Vysoká škola hospodárskych vied (College of Business / Economic Sciences) and once again in 1952 to Vysoká škola ekonomická (College of Economics). The current name has been used since 1992.
