Director’s Office

Welcome to International Business College Mitrovica!

Welcome to IBCM, a unique college where you will be introduced to fresh ways of thinking, learning, and applying your knowledge.

We are here to prepare you for whatever future career you envision for yourself – either locally or internationally.

At IBCM our approach is student-centred, where our aim is to build students into professionals with the skills to make a difference in their workplace and communities. This is a college where the focus is on the quality of education, its application to practice, and the integration of international best practice in all areas.

Our motto, From Theory to Practice, is infused in the design and curricula of all of our degree programmes. Using professional vocational best practice as introduced through our Danish partners, our study programmes are locally adapted and use a pedagogical model that ensures maximum learning:

  1. Conceptualization: Learning in-class, through lectures and interactive activities;
  2. Experimentation: Learning in-lab, through simulated cases studies and projects;
  3. Experience: Learning in-field, through firsthand experience on internships;
  4. Reflection: Learning by reflecting, you will build competencies through the examination and assessment of the totality of your experiences.

Throughout your time as a student in IBCM, you will be challenged to develop yourselves into entrepreneurial thinkers and more importantly, doers! This will require committed effort from your side, but we offer a variety of services to help you, including:

  • Internationally educated and experienced faculty who serve as your advisors and mentors;
  • A Student Representative Council, the student body’s delegate on academic, civic, social, and entrepreneurial matters;
  • An attentive Student Service office to support you with all of your student needs;
  • A Career Centre to guide your professional development and connect you with a network of over 300 organisations locally and internationally;
  • An International Relations department where you will discover international study and work exchange opportunities, supported by a database of scholarships;
  • A physical learning environment of modern infrastructure including IT services, an extensive library of over 500 titles, online research databases, quiet study areas, and a computer lab.

My firm belief is that a high quality education is one of the best investments you will make, and that IBCM students and graduates will be equipped with the knowledge, skills, and competencies to positively shape their professional lives and the environments in which they work. As a student here, you will find that there is always someone with whom you can collaborate and explore new ideas.

I look forward to working with all of you!
