Efficiency of the banking sector has, due to its significance, lately been increasingly analysed by individual countries, through the application of modern economic and mathematical methods and models. This is the case with the banking sector in the Republic of Serbia, as well. For this particular reason, the paper deals in a 2016 efficiency analysis of the banking sector of the Republic of Serbia by applying the Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) analysis. The obtained results of the survey conducted on the sample of thirty (30) banks show that only eight (8) banks were business efficient. With the view of increasing the future business efficiency of the entire banking sector (in particular of the inefficient banks),it is necessary to more efficiently manage the assets and liabilities, human resources, capital, operating income and profit. Moreover, there is a need for a more efficient cost management through the application of modern concepts, such as cost accounting by activities and/or Japanese business philosophy.
