Abstract: Internationalization in case of universities means creating links and strengthening cooperation with partners all around the world in order to ensure study or research opportunities with different aims and for various target groups, students as well as teaching and other staff included. The Faculty of Economics and Management of the Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra, Slovakia is an active applicant in most of the published project calls. Several years of experience is used in managing and administering projects within the frameworks such as CEEPUS (Central European Exchange Program for University Studies), Erasmus+ (framework program for education, training, youth and sport), including Erasmus Mundus and TEMPUS programs. These possibilities offer study and research mobilities that benefit both the participants and the home and host universities, by providing feedback from their practice to be applied in future projects. The faculty supports the idea that a study stay during university studies shall be an essential part of the university studies for most of the students, thus in addition to short-term exchanges an International Master Double Degree Program in Business Economics will be provided jointly by the University of Agriculture in Krakow, Poland and the Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra, Slovakia from the academic year 2016/2017. The paper includes information related to the project "Development of Public Accreditation of Agricultural programs in Russia (PACAgro) 2013-2016" (Project No. 543902-TEMPUS-1-2013-SK-TEMPUS-SMGR, co-funded by the Tempus Programme of the European Union).
