The School of Economics and Business University of Sarajevo (Bosnia & Herzegovina)

3The 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.
