The School is headed by the Rector as a one-man governing body – they are chosen by the School Electoral College and hold office for three or four years. The members of the Electoral College are chosen proportionally according to the Elections Statute from among professors, other academic teachers, non-academic employees and the representatives of both students and doctoral students. The Rector is assisted by the democratically chosen Electoral College members, the Vice-Rector for Academic Research and the Vice-Rector for Student Services.
The collective bodies of the School are the Senate and the Faculty Councils. The former always consists of the Rector as a chairperson, the Vice-Rectors and the Deans. Furthermore, representatives of the following groups are elected proportionally: academic teachers employed as full professors, associate professors or Doctors of Science, other academic teachers, student government (students and doctoral students) and non-academic employees (school administration).
The Senate is responsible for passing the Statute of the School, the regulations of graduate, postgraduate and doctoral courses, the rules of enrolment for regular and doctoral courses, the material and financial plan of the school, establishing the main scope of activity of the School, awarding honorary doctorates, giving opinions about the issues presented by the Rector, the Faculty Councils or the Senate members, etc.
