Dear students,

Welcome to the International Relations (IR) Program at the International University of Sarajevo!

 

Housed within the Faculty of Business and Administration, the IR program offers a highly collaborative environment where students and professors regularly interact both inside and outside the classroom – in lectures and seminars, research projects, and extra-curricular activities.

 

The IR core faculty consists of professors from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Turkey, the USA, Belarus, and Denmark. Our faculty members are not only dedicated educators and mentors but also nationally and internationally recognized in their respective research fields. These scholars are more than willing to share their theoretical and empirical knowledge about international relations with our students.
