Description: The Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Embassy in Skopje announces an open competition for a cooperative agreement to establish an Academic Partnership in Master of Business Administration (MBA) in Strategic Human Resource Management Studies between a U.S. educational institution and the Faculty of Economics at the Saints Cyril and Methodius University (UKIM) in Skopje, North Macedonia. Accredited U.S. four-year colleges and universities meeting the provisions described in Internal Revenue Code section 26 USC 501(c)(3) may submit proposals to pursue institutional or departmental objectives in partnership with the Saints Cyril and Methodius University. The objective for this partnership is to rebuild the MBA in Strategic Human Resource Management program through enriching the existing courses with content pertaining to U.S. business practices, U.S. teaching styles, U.S. research approaches and greater knowledge and capacity exchange with the United States. Activities will include collaborative research, curriculum reform and development, faculty exchanges, capacity building, and professional development. The duration of faculty exchanges can be managed according to the time required for the specific task or activity of their exchange. The Faculty of Economics has indicated the primary focus area should be the business management and human resource capacity building programs. The means of achieving these objectives is purposefully left broad to encourage the submission of innovative proposals tailored to the education and research goals of both institutions. Applicants should consult the Faculty of Economics at the Saints Cyril and Methodius University when developing their proposal. The timeframe for achieving the objectives must be clearly outlined in the proposal funding request. The project implementation period should be 24 months, with option for renewal. A successful proposal will address needs of the Faculty of Economics at the Saints Cyril and Methodius University (UKIM) through a cost-effective project that includes curriculum development, collaborative research, professional development for faculty by U.S. counterparts, and faculty exchange. Prospective candidates are also strongly encouraged to incorporate Faculty of Economics at UKIM's Campus in their project proposal.
