Macedonia2025 is implementing the “Business and Entrepreneurship Development Training: The Leader Project” in cooperation with the renowned Ivey School of Business in London, Ontario, Canada. It was founded in 1991 by MBA students from the Ivey Business School, with the mandate of empowering promising entrepreneurs in frontier markets to envision, launch, and/or scale new ventures. Through this approach, the Leader program aims to enable high-potential individuals to develop local, regional or international business solutions that create opportunities for their communities. At this ten-day program, participants have the opportunity to learn through business case studies, which are part of the Ivey MBA (Management and Business Administration) curriculum.


The aim of the Program is to educate Macedonian young professionals, managers, entrepreneurs, and aspirating entrepreneurs, on the fundamentals of doing business. Participants learn how to turn their business ideas into a reality, or to successfully expand their existing companies in the country. With the implementation of this program, we support the growth of Macedonian businesses and entrepreneurship, thus positively affecting the overall economic development of the country.

The program is aligned with the mission of Macedonia2025 as to help create a prosperous economic climate and a “stronger nation”.
