The participants are working with five local small and medium sized companies on solving real life cases in different business areas (e.g. internationalization, strategy, communication, marketing, logistics, economics, operation, organization, and web design). The IBCM participants include Blerinda Veliu (International Sales and Marketing, 2016), Miljan Janicijevic (Environmental and Agricultural Management, 2015), and Nergjivane Rushiti (Public Service Management, 2016) and two lecturers, Jelena Stanojevic and Gabrijela Velickovic, who will coach and guide the team.


Blerinda Veliu, who recently completed her final bachelor thesis at IBCM, is excited by the experience: “Working in diversified teams will enable us to bring and meet different perspectives to solve a common problem. I am looking forward to the opportunity to work on real life cases, analyze their challenges, and come up with best practices for the companies. We expect to overcome any challenge through great teamwork and by putting our knowledge gathered at IBCM into practice. ”


“This event is a great opportunity for us to network and develop critical thinking and problem solving skills,” comments Jelena Stanojevic, “but also directly supporting the companies to meet their goals.”

The Spring School is part of an ERASMUS+ KA2 funded project, “Developing innovation agents for SMEs (DIGAS)”, which aims to address foster citizens potential and ensure employability by closer skills matching between young graduates and the labour market.

Best of luck, team!
