The University of Shkodër "Luigj Gurakuqi" in Albania was established in 1957.


It has 6 faculties, 15 branches, 14 departments and more than 140 professors.

It has been the major institution of higher education in the region, especially in the technical and scientific disciplines.

In 1992, the university received permission from the government to initiate the development of the Faculty of Economics, with responsibilities for emphasizing market economics, management, and business administration. Menduh Derguti, rector of the University of Shkodra in 1992, asked the University of Nebraska–Lincoln to help develop its curriculum in market economics and business management. Derguti attended training seminars provided by the UNL team in September 1992. As a result, the rector, Dr. Gjovalin Kolombi, established the Faculty of Economics.

In 2002, the university received permission from the government to initiate computer science courses. The courses are being helped by HAN University, Netherlands.

The university has the Luigj Gurakuqi University Library.
