Goals

High-performing organizations recognize that the individual and collective talent of their workforce is their competitive differentiator. When they look to local universities for talent, these organizations expect the same high level of education and proficiencies in their local and regional employees as they see in those educated in U.S. and other western-styled business schools. Companies want employees who demonstrate the capacity for higher levels of leadership and critical thinking. Local universities must reassess their business education frameworks to meet these contemporary needs. The Faculty of Economics as the leading institution in the field of business and economics in Republic of North Macedonia is well positioned to take a leadership role in achieving this goal.

The purpose of the partnership with the Kelley School is to rebuild the faculty’s masters-level degree in SHRM to offer top level management education drawing from U.S. business practices with enriched course content, pedagogical practices, and experiential opportunities for students and faculties. The ultimate deliverable from this partnership will be an M.B.A. that successfully mixes the qualities of a U.S.-based business degree with the cultural knowledge and considerations of the Balkan region. This project sets out to rebuild the existing course structure of the existing SHRM program and M.B.A. and to deliver an M.B.A. for local and regional professionals interested in successfully entering a career within the growing global business community.

The analysis of the labor market, as well as the experience of representatives of the Employment Agency of R.N. Macedonia point to the fact that this is a profession which is currently in high demand. In particular the demand for highly qualified staff has increased significantly in the last years mainly due to the fact that many multinational companies have entered in our country. These facts definitely confirm the appropriateness and timeliness of the decision of the Faculty of Economics – Skopje to initiate the establishment of the study program and to be able to create competitive, high profile professionals in the field of strategic human resource management.

The graduates that will emerge from the study program in MBA in Strategic Human Resource Management will also be able to conduct scientific research, which would contribute to the advancement in this field in the Republic of North Macedonia, as well as help businesses to create innovative solutions.
