Deans’s Message

Welcome to International Balkan University (IBU) and to the Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences. (FEAS)!

Whether you are a prospective student, an alumnus looking to continue your further education, a corporate partner seeking qualified candidates, or a researcher looking for educational and scientific cooperation, I trust that you will find useful information for you. Since it is increasingly difficult to survive in this economy without receiving sufficient training to gain specific skills and knowledge in economizing scarce resources , FEAS has developed a unique curriculum that is adapted to the characteristics and requirements of  each student with various career path options, and in an effort to respond to the demands of international job markets.

FEAS offers international oriented education at first and second cycle studies. The study programmes at first cycle are:

International Economic Relations, Management and Banking and Finance, which lead you to the Bachelor of Science degree with 240 ECTS.

The study programme at second cycle are:
Master of Business Administration and International Economic Relations, both offering you Master of Science degree with 60 ECTS each.

Each department puts considerable effort into small-group seminar classes that deliver an educational environment for fostering problem-discovery and problem-solution methods initiated by the students themselves.

We, at Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences believe, very strongly, in interactive and engaged learning, and we offer a robust selection of practical seminars and classes in economics, banking and finance, as well as advanced training through our Internship programme, so the students can develop real-world, applicable skills.

As education today goes beyond the classroom the Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences at IBU puts at students’ disposal the best tools to enhance your preparation and personal development through the rapid development and growing involvement of students in exchange programmes (Erasmus+ , Mevlana and other programmes) which give our students direct experience of different cultural, educational, and business contexts.

In terms of scientific publications, research projects, and seminar series, our students regularly take part in Student Conferences and Congresses through the network of partner universities in the region and wider, as IBU has international agreement with over 150 Universities throughout the world.

We also invite the students and other interested stakeholders to participate in all extracurricular activities that are continuously organized by the University and by the various students’ clubs and to get involved in the daily life of the Campus.

And finally, our goal at Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences, and IBU, is to challenge, disrupt, inspire, and empower the students to achieve their career dreams and step confidently into the world’s job market. We strive to produce future leaders who are innovative, flexible and extremely competent in using business tools and concepts whilst drawing on their understanding of the real world and global awareness.
