their Saturday, March 30th in Montenegro as they were hosted by two
top class hospitality enterprises – Porto Montenegro and Luštica Bay. Due to
the initiative of Dr. Besim Agušaj, professor and Area Head for the HTM program,
both companies gladly opened their doors to RIT Croatia students and gave them
the opportunity to take an in-depth (behind the scenes) site tour in both
First the students visited Porto Montenegro, one of the most exclusive yachting locations in the Mediterranean. Porto is able to host super yachts up to 250 meters in length and has top quality luxury offer to its clients. Also, this year – for the first time ever – our students were hosted by Luštica Bay. Luštica Bay is a brand new luxury resort situated at the southern side of the Luštica peninsula (some 10 km from Tivat). Students were offered a private tour through the entire resort, including The Chedi Hotel. The hosts proudly shared their business philosophy and best practices.
"During this site visit, our students were offered a firsthand experience in how luxury operations and customer service look like. I hope they will take the best out of this experience for their in class assignments as well as for further development of their careers”, said. prof. Besim Agušaj.
With the start of the new academic year higher education institutions are facing unique challenges that stand to swiftly, thoroughly, and permanently reshape them. When academic year starts with key messages focused around safety of students and faculty, it is clear even to a common observer that students and faculty alike are embarking on a journey like none before.
Quality and excellence have always been embedded in RIT Croatia's DNA. As a global campus of RIT, we are committed to deliver exceptional studying and learning experiences for our students, we well as working experience for our employees.
