Also it will be used for life long learning and continual education of our teaching staff. It is joint acitivity of Univertsity of East Sarajevo and city of East Sarajevo.
Specific features and advantages of the University are its organization - the faculties and academies are located in ten towns and university centers which allow cooperation with local communities and companies, and this kind of cooperation opens up space for the faster development of the region and create new jobs. This approach is adapted to the future challenges and therefore I believe that if the University of East Sarajevo is successful in its development plans, its contribution to socio-economic development at local, entity and state level will be more important.
