About IBCM

Welcome to International Business College Mitrovica! IBCM students Welcome to IBCM, a unique college which prides itself on fresh ways of thinking, learning, and applying knowledge. Based on our two beautiful, modern campuses in North and South Mitrovica, we specialize in preparing our students for the world of work. History, donors, and partners International Business College Mitrovica (IBCM) was founded in March 2010 as an internationally registered not-for-profit foundation operated under the auspices of the Dutch non-governmental organization SPARK. IBCM It was established with donations from:

  • Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA)
  • Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs
  • Dutch Ministry for Development Cooperation
  • British Embassy Pristina
  • Swiss Confederation
  • European Union Office in Kosovo
  • Germany Embassy Pristina

IBCM developed three high-quality academic programmes in partnership with higher education institutions in Denmark: Lillebaelt Academy of Professional Higher Education, Tietgen Business College, and University College Lillebaelt. After several years of intense information and skills exchange, where the study programmes were adapted to the local context and staff and teachers received intensive training, the curriculum development stage of the partnership was completed in 2014. The programmes have now been fully handed over to IBCM. The partnership with the Danish institutions is now operating on a maintenance level, with key Danish teachers continuing to implement their quality oversight of IBCM’s assessment and examinations process. By maintaining this agreement, IBCM students receive double degrees, meaning that they gain a diploma from both IBCM and from the relevant partner college in Denmark upon successful completion of their study programme. IBCM has been accredited by German Accreditation agency EVALAG since 2013. IBCMApproach At IBCM our approach is student-centered. 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. IBCMIBCM’s Vision Mitrovica will become an economically vibrant hub in the Western Balkans that demonstrates socio-ethnic inclusion of the various groups and communities of the region. High-quality education and training will contribute to this by providing crucial skills development as well as exposure to the international community, and by bridging the ethnic groups in Mitrovica. BlankIBCM’s Mission & Mandate IBCM will become a self-sustainable higher vocational education institution that provides high-quality international education at an affordable rate.
