Zagreb School of Economics and Management International Summer School Enrollments Open


The Zagreb School of Economics and Management (ZSEM), Croatia’s top business school according to the Eduniversal rankings, which also holds the AACSB accreditation, will once again be offering its 3-week Summer School program this year…

This year the 3-week summer program, which will be held from June 27 – July 15, 2016, offers a variety of bachelor and master courses in English taught by renowned lecturers and researchers.

“Our summer program hosts students from all over the world who are interested in spending three weeks learning and experiencing academic excellence in beautiful Croatia. Apart from the in-class academic program, ZSEM’s international summer school offer a variety of educational and fun field trips as a part of additional and free Croatian studies course. This includes visits to Croatian cultural, business and political institutions. Rich social program is done through the extensive ZSEM summer buddy program,” Ana Korper Kuštrak, Coordinator of the Summer School Program says.


The summer semester at ZSEM, which is now in its 9th consecutive year, attracts over 70 students from around the world, including a student with Croatian roots. One of those who attended last year was John Carroll University’s Matea Čubela, whose parents emigrated to the U.S where she was born.

“John Carroll University offers a variety of study abroad programs, and with my background this seemed like a perfect fit! I typically visit Croatia as a vacation spot, so to experience student life there was wonderful because I saw the country in a new light,” Matea said, before explaining her learning highlights of the course.


“I took two courses: International Management and Croatian Studies. It was interesting to learn more about Croatia’s history and people in the Croatian Studies course. The International Management class offered a wide range of opportunities to learn about the increasing importance of culture in the global marketplace and how it can be beneficial or detrimental to a business.”


Matea says that with such a diverse group of students from all over the world as classmates, it brought her a whole range of viewpoints to light with every topic.

“The program at ZSEM was definitely worthwhile! Not only did we learn about the culture and the people of the country we were in, but outside of the classroom we were able to truly immerse ourselves in it. The summer school program plans a variety of events and fieldtrips, creating the perfect balance between education and recreation,” she concluded.


Tuition Fees are: Regular fee €1,400 / Early bid fee (by April 31st) €999, which includes a weekend trip to the coastal city of Zadar, and visits to Plitvice Lakes National Park, Trakoscan castle and other visits. Apply online: http://summerschool.zsem.hr/
