The Coalition for Clean Universities (Coalitia pentru Universitati Curate) has conducted a study into the integrity of 42 out of a total of 56 Romanian universities. The research puts the University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Targu Mures, Iuliu Hatieganu in Cluj and Alexandru Ioan Cuza in Iasi, top of the class with four stars each.

In Bucharest, the National Academy of Physical Education and Sports came fifth, Academy of Economic Studies sixth and Bucharest University 20th, each receiving three stars, while the Polytechnics University was ranked 27th with two stars. The universities with the lowest score were SNSPA (the National School of Political and Administrative Science), in 40th position with just one star, and one place below, with no stars, the University of Agronomic Science and Veterinary Medicine.

In analyzing the integrity of Romanian universities, the research focused on administrative transparency and probity, academic correctness, governance quality and financial management. The Coalition for Clean Universities was created in 2007, at the initiative of the Romanian Academic Society (SAR), whose president is Alina Mungiu-Pippidi, public politics professor at Hertie School of Governance in Berlin.
