American University in Bosnia and Herzegovina in Tuzla

The American University in Bosnia and Herzegovina (abbr. AUBiH) is an private university located in Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina. In 2007, the University opened a postgraduate department in Sarajevo, offering a fast track master's degree in business administration. In 2009, it opened an undergraduate department in Banja Luka.[3] In 2011, the AUBIH opened an undergraduate department in Mostar.[4]

Staff[edit]

The lecturing staff are mainly former US professionals, as well as some from Europe and Bosnia & Herzegovina. Some lectures are conducted via online, distance-learning methods. As part of the now-defunct partnership agreement with State University of New York at Canton (SUNY), students from AUBIH received double diplomas (both from the US and Bosnia & Herzegovina) and attended one semester in USA. Students have opportunities for work placement with leading US companies such as Xerox, Microsoft, Johnson & Johnson and Kodak.[5]

The President of AUBiH is Denis Prcić, an entrepreneur from Tuzla who lived in Rochester, New York in the 1990s.[6][7]

The University is organized around three colleges:

The College of International Finance and Banking - CIFB (Tuzla, Sarajevo, Banja Luka)

The College of International Law and Diplomacy - CILD (Tuzla, Sarajevo, Banja Luka)

The College of Digital Economy and Information Technology - CDEIT (Tuzla)

Partnership[edit]

SUNY Partnership

AUBIH had a partnership with State University of New York at Canton (SUNY) until November 2011 to offer undergraduate programs in the fields of international financing, banking, insurance and risk management, information technology and digital economy. That agreement expired in November 2011 and was not renewed.[8] SUNY-Canton has agreed to honor the promises that were made to students on behalf of SUNY representatives at the beginning of their studies.[9]

West Virginia University Partnership

On 21 June 2012, West Virginia University made a partnership with American University in Bosnia and Herzegovina.[10] It's one of over 100 universities with which WVU has a global partnership.[11]
