At the completion of GBEP in 2008, FLAG independently continued working with other regional and U.S. based universities to offer dual MBA and Executive Education programs. The most recent partners are the International Burch University of Sarajevo (IBU) and Texas A&M University–Commerce (TAMU-C). As of 2012, SGSB graduated 143 MBA students and 1,400 students from the Executive Education program.
FLAG, in partnership with Texas A&M University–Commerce (TAMU-C), and based on their work in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) with the Sarajevo Graduate School of Business (SGSB), facilitated a partnership with the University of Belgrade and established the Belgrade Graduate Business Programs (BGBP) in 2010. Similar to SGSB, graduates receive two diplomas upon completion of their MBA course work: a U.S. recognized AACSB accredited MBA from TAMU-C and a locally recognized Masters of Science in Economics from the University of Belgrade. As of May 2013, BGBP graduated 3 Cohorts totaling 26 students.
Students in the Belgrade Graduate Business Program
From 2004-2008, FLAG supported the partnership between the University of Delaware, USA, and the University of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), in the USAID funded, Graduate Business Education Project (GBEP). The partnership allowed students to receive a dual-MBA, one from a U.S. institution being accredited through the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and an equivalent degree from a BiH university. Furthermore, an Executive Education program was established offering courses in Accounting, Finance, Management, Marketing, Human Resources Management, Business Planning, and Strategic Planning. These programs resulted in the establishment of the Sarajevo Graduate School of Business (SGSB).
