International BURCH University (IBU)

Dear students,

2020 was a challenging year worldwide. Higher education community did its best to counter the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and adapt to the new circumstances. Along with our leaders, deans, academic and administrative staff we responded to the challenges and honoured the promise given to our students. Namely, we successfully delivered a world-class online educational experience and market driven learning content.

As the preeminent entrepreneurial university in Bosnia and Herzegovina, we are dedicated to teaching excellence and high student satisfaction. We are truly passionate about personalised mentoring and practical research leading up to superior student employment outcomes and lasting community impact.

International Burch University (IBU) is a British owned entrepreneurial university accredited by top accreditation bodies both in the United Kingdom and Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is the first choice for all students passionate about critical thinking, market driven solutions and personal success.

  • In fact, we are the first university in BH that established a business incubator. The business incubator is a platform that creates value through the combination of local intellectual capital and financial capital markets in London.
  • We recently opened a cutting-edge PC Lab home to IT professionals and IT students.
  • We also developed advanced bioengineering labs and research facilities home to some of the country's most noted researchers.

This is because we believe that everyone deserves access to quality education. We thus strongly encourage you to apply for our scholarship program and capitalise on high quality educational opportunities. Indeed, it is our promise that all academic and administrative staff, fellow students and student club members will be there for you. We will support you on your way to personal growth and will do our best for you to succeed in everything you do.

Regardless of whether the pandemic will prevent us from meeting each other on university campus or not, the pandemic will not prevent us from learning. No matter what your career ambitions are, the International Burch University Community is there to inspire you, support you and connect you with each other.

Welcome to the IBU family,
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mersid Poturak


University accreditation is an activity initiated by an institution and executed by authorized and independent accreditation agencies. State accreditation of a higher education institution is mandatory and universities can also opt for international accreditation to work on improving quality and reputation building. The accreditation process requires rigorous self-evaluation and an independent and objective assessment of the overall quality of education ensuring that higher education institutions meet set standards and are trained to deliver students programs they offer. Accreditation emphasizes quality assurance and commitment to continuous quality improvement.

hearts and minds

Aristotle said that „Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all“.

Educating the heart refers to the importance of not only focusing on developing the cognitive aspects (our minds) but also all the qualities that make us human (our hearts) and ultimately give us meaning in our lives.

We challenge our students to overcome barriers and develop critical thinking but also to develop deep emotional intelligence, empathy, compassion, altruism, and kindness. To maximize your potential you have to manage both intelligence and emotions.

The illustration (heart), which is a visual representation of our vision of education, was designed by professor Ranko Anđelić from the Department of Graphic Design and Multimedia at the International Burch University in cooperation with the team of the Marketing and PR Department.
