WBAA 2.0: New structure for WBAA Teams ā€“ Open call for new team members!

Earlier this year, a task force consisting of Regional Board members, WBAA Team Leaders and Deputy Leaders, proposed a restructuring of the five current WBAA Teams (Academic & Career Development, Communication & IT, Research, Projects, Internal Affairs). The process of restructuring, called WBAA 2.0, aims to strengthen collaboration between members, teams, the higher education sector, and the business sector in the region to better reflect the mission and vision of WBAA. This will contribute to the motivation of the members and the visibility of WBAA in the Western Balkan region. At the General Assembly in March 2021, the members voted for the restructuring of the teams and now it is finally time for its implementation. We are looking for members for the new teams. If you are interested in helping shape WBAA and becoming part of the new teams, you can sign up here: https://forms.gle/DppkzwtbWNqS4PHt8. The call is open until 25 August 2021. For more information on the new teams and the structure, click here.

Our Mission

The aim of the WBAA is to establish a strong union of alumni coming from the Western Balkans countries in order to advocate for modernization and improve the quality of higher education in the region and empower young people of the Western Balkans on their academic and career development towards successful employment.
