With a unique design, students spend two years of their studies in Skopje, and one year in Rome.


The School of Business Economics and Management is dedicated to providing excellent education to students and creating the professionals that the modern business world needs. We have carefully designed curricula that enable students to learn from vast academic material from renowned authors, using the latest research methods and understanding the most contemporary business analyses.

That is why we have designed and developed the Business Administration and Economics – Dual Degree Program. In partnership with the University of Rome Tor Vergata, Italy, we have carefully created a unique program that enables our students the best of both worlds. The Dual Degree Program accepts 20 students only, and the first two years of the program are studied at UACS, and the third year is studied at University of Rome Tor Vergata. By completing this program, the students earn dual degrees, with dual certified diplomas.

The first two years of the program are studied at UACS, where students attend a challenging and competitive program, aimed at immersing them in the world of business. Based on both theoretical and practical aspects of business administration, students learn academic knowledge and gain real world skills and know-how. The program presents a multidisciplinary approach, tackling with concepts and models from Management, Economics, Finance and Quantitative Methods.

The University of Rome Tor Vergata hosts the Dual Degree Program students in their third year, and offers them a special course structure in Business Administration & Economics, useful to cope with the complexity of a global economy. The structure of the program is continuously updated, focusing on the development of specific links between theory and real-world applications. The international context supports the students to strengthen their own integration and co-competition abilities to successfully approach the professional and the personal life.


Our aim is to bring out the individual potential of each student and develop their professional skills. This is done not by teaching theory and facts only, but with application of the knowledge and by gaining practical skills also. Besides lectures, the education concept also includes role play, case study analysis, solving practical problems and work on individual and team projects in real companies, starting from market research and writing marketing plans, all the way to measuring employee satisfaction.

By spending the third year of the studies at University of Rome Tor Vergata, UACS students are also exposed to lectures by prominent Italian professors and are privileged to acquire substantial knowledge and real-world experience. By comparing different educational concepts, teaching methods and various types of student work, the students at this program are given a chance to truly excel in the world of business.

The lectures are conducted in English, using contemporary textbooks and teaching materials from world renowned universities. The curriculum is designed to stimulate individual work and teamwork, as well as foster development of soft skills. Students are also encouraged to develop and improve their presentation and communication skills in English.

The students use Moodle, an online learning platform which is standard in world class education and is used by over 80% of the universities in the world. Moodle provides students 24/7 access to teaching materials, lectures, presentations, templates for projects, etc.
