SEBS
Description

The School of Economics and Business in Sarajevo (SEBS) was established in 1952 as the Faculty of Economics. Its first class consisted of 105 full-time and 129 part-time students. SEBS has the longest tradition and is the largest educational institution in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

It is a leading institution in the BH higher education system in the creation and dissemination of knowledge in the fields of economics and business administration. Of particular significance is the continuity of School operations throughout the past 58 years. Even amid the heaviest shelling and warfare during the aggression against Bosnia and Herzegovina from 1992-1995, teaching did not cease, owing to the enthusiasm and dedication of both employees and students. The School managed to keep the majority of its faculty members even during the most difficult periods of its history. Over the last fifty years, the School has been continually developing and implementing numerous programs leading to the formation of highly-educated and creative professionals capable of assuming managerial and leadership roles in their professional careers. Its main goal is to adopt and apply all current trends in business, economics and education to adapt to our rapidly changing, competitive environment. 

Endeavoring to make its curriculum and syllabus as modern as possible, as well as to intensify steps towards the internationalization and international recognition of its degrees, the School was the first in Bosnia-Herzegovina to adopt and implement (during the 2001/2002 academic year) a curriculum based on the European Credits Transfer System – ECTS. An appreciable level of cooperation has been achieved with elite schools of economics both in Europe and around the world, providing students with a wider array of choices, and allowing their own independent influence on the development of the programs in which they participate.

SEBS is the only educational institution in B&H that has been a member of European Foundation for Management Development - EFMD and member of The Association to Advance Collegiate School of Business – AACSB.

SEBS has been granted the accreditation by the Austrian Agency for Quality Assurance. At present, SEBS is the only faculty in Bosnia and Herzegovina that holds a European accreditation, which means that this institution and its diplomas will be recognized in the European Education Area.
