Erasmus policy statement

The main role of IBS International Business School Ljubljana is to offer the employers internationally competitive business economists with knowledge and skills in the fields of contemporary international business, foreign languages, sustainable development, and corporate social responsibility. IBS programmes of International business educate graduates who wish to find employment in international environment and contribute to European and global liaisons. IBS supports the European modernisation and internationalisation agenda in higher education. This Programme is part of our own strategy for modernisation and internationalisation. IBS strategy acknowledges the key contribution of mobile staff and students, and of participation in European and international cooperation projects to the quality of its higher education programmes and student experience.

IBS undertakes to contribute to the European Union's modernisation and internationalisation agenda in higher education by the following 5 priority objectives:
1) increasing attainment levels to provide the graduates and personnel according to European needs,
2) improving the quality and relevance of higher education,
3) strengthening quality through mobility and cross-border cooperation,  
4) linking higher education, research and business for excellence and regional development, and
5) improving governance and funding.
We will work towards achieving these objectives by 1) student and staff mobility, joint master's degrees within Europe and from Third countries, 2) strategic partnerships, knowledge alliances, capacity building with neighbouring countries and with Third Countries 3) networks and policy support measures.
The international mobility and cooperation are the central elements of our institutional policy. IBS develops extensive cooperation with partners in EU and non-EU countries in the framework of a clear strategy for internationalisation, promotes and supports student and staff mobility (including from under-represented groups, and further develops non-discrimination policies), outlines a clear policy towards the development of integrated, transnational teaching activities (joint courses, modules, curricula, dobule/multiple/joint degrees), recognises the importance of, and provides visibility to, the results achieved by our staff members engaged individual mobility or in cooperation projects with strategic partners, and takes into account the results of international monitoring of European and international mobility and cooperation activities to date, thus further developing its international performance.
IBS undertakes to respect in full the principles of non-discrimination set out in the Programme and ensure equal access and opportunities to mobile participants from all backgrounds. We organise the selection of mobile staff and students and the award of grants in a fair, transparent, coherent and documented way. IBS has measures that any individual or group will be treated equally.We ensure that there is no discrimination based on sex, race, colour, ethnic or social origin, genetic features, language, religion or belief, political or any other opinion, membership of a national minority, property, birth, disability, age or sexual orientation.
IBS ensures full recognition for satisfactorily completed activities of study mobility, for traineeships etc. in terms of ECTS awarded. We also ensure the inclusion of satisfactorily completed activities in the final record of student achievements (Diploma Supplement).
IBS does not charge any type of fees for the tuition, registration or examination of mobile students or for their access to library and other facilities offered to local students.
We choose our partners with regard to similar interests and/or study areas, with regard to different geographical areas, on the basis of a comprehensive understanding of the partner institution, compatibility of academic profiles and a relationship of trust. At present we perform only the accredited first cycle programmes but hope that we will soon have accredited also a second cycle programme so we are most interested in international activities connected with the first and second cycle. We would like to develop both staff and student mobility, including study and training as well as participation in international projects.
