Program will be offered in partnership with the University American College Skopje

Maastricht School of Management (MSM) has partnered with Macedonia's University American College Skopje to offer an MBA program in the country, MSM has announced today.

Both schools framed the new MBA as a way for emerging leaders in Macedonia to gain the skills they need as the country moves through the dual processes of becoming a European Union member and growing the economy.

As Macedonia moves closer to joining the European Union's single market, "a higher premium will be placed on high skills, requiring substantial investments in human capabilities – and requiring them now," according to MSM's dean Wim Naudé.

"This program will benefit Macedonian managers in gaining a global outlook on managerial practices and acquire the knowledge and skills required for facing the business challenges of the 21st century," according to a statement from the University American College Skopje.

Notably, the program will be the first AMBA-accredited MBA program to be offered within the country. No details were immediately available with regard to course content. 

The MBA program will take two years to complete, and will launch in March 2015. It will be delivered in English on the University American College Skopje's campus, which is in Skopje, the country's capital.

Scholarship opportunities will be available to Macedonian students.

The announcement comes less than a month after the University of Hull announced that it would begin offering an EMBA program in another country in the region, Romania.

In recent years MSM has partnered with other schools to offer various MBA and DBA programs in Albania, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Poland, Romania, and Russia, among other countries.
