Institutional Research Office

The mission of the Institutional Research Office (IRO) at CEU is to support evidence based decision-making and strategic planning of the University by conducting research and providing insightful analyses, and turning institutional data into meaningful information. Our aim is to promote a data driven culture within the institution, based on both quantitative and qualitative approaches as appropriate, by regularly publishing and disseminating reports to the senior management, administrative and academic units, and external partners. In our customer-focused approach, we are committed to tailoring our reports to different audiences and specific needs. Using business intelligence and data visualization tools, we strive to make the information about CEU accessible and easy to understand.
