Competition Fields

The Competition includes 7 fields of science/arts in which you are considered to present your ideas and projects:


This contest would be a great opportunity for you to use your knowledge in science, but also to acquire new information and new approaches and to implement them into the innovative solution of the everyday problems. You will learn what the science is and furthermore, which is more important, how the science is applied. After all, as the designer Theodore Von Karman said “Scientists study the world as it is, engineers create the world that never has been.”


International Balkan University wants to give tomorrow’s leaders the opportunity to demonstrate innovative thinking on the issues that shape their world. On this matter the Faculty of Economy and Administrative Sciences is organizing two events (an essay competition and an oratory event) to encourage young people to cultivate the characteristics that turn good students into great writers: independent thought, depth of knowledge, clear reasoning, critical analysis and persuasive style, and to express their personal opinions on economic matters.


This contest would be a great opportunity to use your creativity and modern understanding of social science and initiate positive changes in society. Through new and simulative methods you’ll gain knowledge and skills how to establish, influence and implement system that is just for all. You’ll learn the world of law, the causalities and the consequences of legal decisions, the complexity and tendency for perfection of the legal systems, the need for order and respect of the rules. It is the law that shapes the society we are living it and we believe that your comprehensive knowledge will make it better.


The International Balkan University in Skopje is organizing a high school competition in reciting poetry in English for high schools in Macedonia. We are pleased to invite you to take part and experience the thrill and the satisfaction of inspiring your students to open up their creative potentials and get awarded for that.


Through debate we create opportunities for better understanding and improvement of our personal life and society in general. The purpose of social sciences is to understand patterns of social behavior and organization of society. Debating on topics covered by social sciences can develop awareness of the importance of personal involvement of every member of society in shaping and articulating important public issues.

Communications & Media
