About the university: Founded in 1952, the University of Sarajevo's School of Economics and Business Sarajevo (SEBS) is the oldest and largest school of economics and business in the country, committed to educating new generations of highly capable, creative and internationally competent academic and research practitioners with expertise in areas of interest for the country. The mid-term objective of the school is to become a prestigious higher education institution in the area of economic and business sciences in the South East Europe region by 2025. 
Areas of expertise: SEBS publishes two indexed journals - the School of Economics and Business Review, and the South East European Journal. Every second year since 2002, it has been organizing an International Economic Conference (ICES) whose accepted papers are then published in the indexed conference proceedings. Under a standing agreement on cooperation and partnership, SEBS staff also contribute to the work of the Economic Institute Sarajevo -- recent projects relate to the competitive position of the country's economy, export promotion strategy for Bosnia and Herzegovina, foreign trade policy of the country, and an innovation policy for Western Balkan countries. 
Courses offered: SEBS offers a wide range of undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate degree programmes, as well as shorter tailored courses for specific industries or companies. Degree programmes include Bachelor's and Master's in economics, management, and applied business, as well as English-language programmes in Management, and a Master programme in economic diplomacy. SEBS's PhD in business and economics gives students the possibility to follow a research-oriented stream or an executive doctorate in business administration. Additionally, several undergraduate and graduate programmes have been developed jointly with universities in Ireland, Germany, Slovenia, Croatia and the United Kingdom.
