BEHIND EVERY SUCCESS STORY LIES A DREAM, AN IDEAL…
The success story of the International Balkan University began in 2006. The Foundation for Education and Culture “USKUP” was founded by a group of intellectuals and academicians (scholars) to establish the INTERNATIONAL BALKAN UNIVERSITY as a cultural bridge between the Balkans and Turkey, with the intent of increasing the quality level of human capital in the region.
As a provider of high-quality education, International Balkan University has adopted the mission of educating self-confident, multidimensional, socially responsible and globally competitive individuals. In addition, the university produces high-quality scientific research that will contribute to technological and economic development in the region. With this mission in mind, International Balkan University aims to become a renowned international educational institution that sees cultural diversity as an asset, and that contributes to the development and stability of the Balkans by producing the best professional individuals who are ready to compete in the workforce.

The Governor of National Bank of the Republic of North Macedonia, Dr. Anita Angelovska Bezhoska on 11th December 2019 delivered a lecture to the students of the International Balkan University on the dynamics and the model of economic growth before, during, and after the global economic and financial crisis and the latest macroeconomic forecasts of the National Bank. Afterwards, she addressed the general trends in Central East and Southeast European countries, pointing out that many countries in the region had an excessive and unsustainable growth model that came to the fore during the global crisis when growth rates slowed down significantly. As she pointed out, economic growth in our country decelerated at a slower pace though, yet being among the highest in the region.
The Governor also spoke about the latest macroeconomic forecasts of the National Bank for the period until 2022, first referring to the key assumptions of the forecasts. She also pointed out that these forecasts presume a stable domestic environment, further inflow of foreign investment, extension of the public infrastructure cycle and increasing foreign demand, albeit more moderate than the April forecasts.
“The forecasted medium-term growth rates of our economy are slightly higher than those of the European economy reflecting real convergence to the European income level. Yet, faster convergence requires higher economic growth rates which implies an increased level of potential growth through further structural reforms”, said Angelovska Bezhoska.
Students at the International Balkan University expressed great interest in the lecture, which grew into an open discussion with the governor. The discussion also raised a number of relevant issues such as factors for strengthening capacities for greater long-term economic growth, relationship between deposit growth and economic growth, and the importance of credit support.
The National Bank financial education has significantly strengthened. It includes a number of lectures on important central banking topics to students from all interested higher education institutions in the country. Governor Angelovska Bezhoska’s lecture was delivered as part of these activities. Such lectures to economics students at other higher education institutions are scheduled for the upcoming period.
