What is Delta Mu Delta?
Delta Mu Delta (DMD) is a business honor society that recognizes and encourages academic excellence of students at qualifying colleges and universities to create a DMD community that fosters the well-being of its individual members and the business community through life-time membership.
Delta Mu Delta was founded by the Dean from Harvard University and four professors from Yale University and New York University in November, 1913.
In 1963, DMD was admitted to membership in the Association of College Honor Societies, ACHS, an organization of nearly 70 member international honor societies whose objective is to maintain high standards for the recognition and promotion of academic excellence in higher education.
In 1992, the Society established an affiliation with the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs, ACBSP.
Delta Mu Delta is the International Honor Society for business programs accredited by ACBSP at the baccalaureate, graduate and doctoral levels.

Erasmus Student Network University American College Skopje (ESN UACS) is a non-profit, non-political and volunteer student organization acting towards the mission of the Erasmus Student Network, i.e. providing opportunities for cultural understanding under the principle of SHS – Students Helping Students”.
ESN UACS is the third and newest local section of ESN Macedonia, which has been elected as an official section at the 10th National Platform of ESN Macedonia, held on 11 September, 2012 at UACS premises.
Our aim is to help the incoming and outgoing Erasmus + exchange students to get integrated into the society during their study abroad period. We provide support and assistance to the incoming international students at UACS in terms of looking for student housing, University orientation, and organization of social, cultural and sport activities.
The students, who do not have the possibility to experience a study period abroad, get “internationalization at home” by working on local, national and international projects and activities, which link them to the international level of the ESN (http://esn.org/projects).
If you would like to travel, experience Europe, participate at international events, make new friends and gain soft skills, ESN UACS is the right choice for you. For more information, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Tutoring Club at University American College Skopje or Tutoring Assistance Student Club (TASC) is a platform designed from the students for the students. The TASC is aimed for the students who need assistance with their courses, who are lagging behind with their exams or who are placed under a special learning regime with the possibility to learn and improve their grades, through learning from their colleagues.
Every UACS student who needs assistance with his/her courses can become a member of the Club. Afterwards the student will be assigned a tutor (i.e. another student), who will work with him/her and help him/her master the specific course being tackled.
The tutors are UACS students who have a minimum grade of B- or GPA of 2.67 for the specific course, who have been recommended by a professor, and who are also willing to help their colleagues. Every tutor can earn from 2 to 6 ECTS credits for providing tutoring classes to other students.
The TACS is active during every academic year during the period October to June.
We are encouraging every UACS student to become a member of the Tutoring Assistance Student Club, and provide help to others who need it.

Border and Regional Studies Network
– Network CIII-PL-1604-01-2122 (detailed info at the CEEPUS website: https://www.ceepus.info/nw/1604-2122%20(Umbrella)
The Border and Regional Studies Network is comprised of 15 universities located in 10 countries of Central Europe and Balkans. The network’s thematic framework will address one of the crucial problems and challenges of the XXI century like migrations, multi-ethnic societies, revitalization of regional identities, border crossing and border revitalization (the last one strongly influenced by the pandemic). The main objective of the network is sharing and promoting of the high quality, up-to-date knowledge regarding border and regional studies among students and academics. This will be obtained by series of summer schools and seminars organized in different locations characterized by borderlandness and multi-ethnicity. In the long run we would like to establish tradition of meetings between scholars and students interested in border and regional studies, thereby building community of researchers within the CEEPUS countries.
The Border and Regional Studies Network also cooperates with FORTHEM Alliance (see more on the FORTHEM website: https://www.forthem-alliance.eu/) as an associated partner within the FORTHEM Lab Experiencing Europe.
