The most important two main streets that meet at Romana Square are 'Lascar Catargiu' Boulevard, which runs northwest towards Victoriei Square, as well as the 'Magheru' boulevard, which runs southeast towards the University Square.

In addition, the Romana Square features a 'Capitoline Wolf' statue, a symbol of Latinity.

POLICY The Academy of Economic Studies (A.S.E.) is a professional community, a teaching institution with long history, and good reputation in the university circles. The university ethics code works as a moral contract between the employees and students – which contribute to A.S.Es growing prestige and on creating a study environment based on professional and social cooperation. To assure the professional development of each member A.S.E. promotes vales and principles created according to the evolution of knowledge under the Civil and State Legal code. The policy of A.S.E. expresses the ideals, principles and rules of professional ethics that the employees and students fallow. A.S.E.s fundamental ethics principles have their roots in A.S.E.s support of the democratic project and in the models proposed by A.S.E.s internal tradition. Many elements come together as the building blocs of A.S.E.s professional ethics code. Few of these elements are moral integrity, academic freedom, tolerance, equality, honesty and professional and civil responsibility.
