In our globalized world, the role of knowledge is appraised. In this knowledge and learning-based economy and society, the universities gain even more focus, as these are the institutions where the creation and dissemination of knowledge is done. In the past decades there is an increasing interest in the quantifying of the measurable local economic impact of universities. The purpose of this study is to analyse, what methodological opportunities are available nowadays regarding the measuring of the local economic impact of universities and how these methodologies can be applied regarding the institution of our choice. To answer this question, our train of thought leads through three main chapters. After the processing and introduction of related literature, we reveal the methodology of international and national benchmarks that concentrate on the measuring of the local economic impact of higher education institutions. During this we concentrate mainly on the utilized databases, the source of information and the value of the applied multipliers. Based on this, we create a framework, thus contributing to the development of methodology. In the end we quantified the local economic impact of a national higher education institution. The necessary data was collected by processing the strategic documents of the chosen higher education institution and by analyzing the results of a relevant primary research based on a questionnaire. Besides the publication of the results, we identified several limits regarding the measuring process in connection with impact studies. We collect what kind of solutions can come into question regarding these studies. After this we outline the benefits of this study regarding potential stakeholders. The main contribution of our research is the creation of a university-oriented framework that synthesizes the main requirements and procedures of local economic impact studies.
