During the three weeks intensive program, the classes will be held by four different Faculties, which are located in Ljubljana, Banja Luka, Mostar and Podgorica (Budva).

Bachelor’s as well as Master’s students

Course aim

International Business familiarizes the students with the key characteristics and issues of doing business in the Western Balkans in the context of the international business.

Economics of Transition focuses on the analysis of the past and present economic performance as well as on the future development challenges in transition economies through the applied micro and macroeconomics. Both courses are relying on an innovative mixture of theory and practice. Since the region is increasingly integrated with the EU, special attention is devoted to it in both courses.
