Friday, 6th of December was another exciting day at RIT
Croatia’s Dubrovnik campus. As a part of the Food & Beverage Management
class, taught by Prof. Domagoj Nikolić, our sophomore students gave
presentations of their semester long projects to industry professionals and RIT Croatia Alumni, Mr.
Ivor Vlašić, F&B Sales and Cross-selling Manager at Adriatic Luxury Hotels and Mr. Branimir Boras, Assistant Food
Beverage Manager at Sun Gardens Dubrovnik.
Students presented the standard recipes for four menus (Appetizers, Soups and Salads, Mains and Desserts) which they had to refine and upgrade through menu engineering mechanisms employing variable strategies for different profit categories. The capstone of the project was a special online simulation at which they had to tailor a seven-item menu out of 12 available dishes and run a Menu Engineering over a longer period with the goal of maximizing revenue from the menu items competing with each other.
At the end of the presentations, our guests were thrilled with the richness of competencies and level of knowledge shown by the students, which, without this specific teaching focus and method, would take years and years to develop in a real work environment.
RIT Croatia remains at the cutting edge of experiential learning in hospitality globally.
Senior capstone project is the crown of education at RIT Croatia for graduating students of the Hospitality and Tourism Management program. Senior year students choose topics based on their own interests, which gives them the opportunity to tackle anything they find interesting and worth exploring. Creating a successful senior capstone project is a complex process which requires a lot of maturing along the way, a lot of problem solving, researching and, above all, a good and firm connection with the faculty member mentoring the whole process.
Eta Sigma Delta (ESD), an honorary society for students of the Hospitality and Tourism Management program at RIT Croatia's Dubrovnik campus, held its induction ceremony to welcome 10 new members on Thursday, April 29 at the Hotel Hilton Imperial.
After an exciting weekend in Dubrovnik, filled with interactive workshops and final presentations done by all finalists, we are happy to announce the winners of the Hospitality Star Search Contest 2022!
As part of RIT Croatia’s celebration of its 25th anniversary, the college organized a creativity competition for its students. Students were invited to produce a video, an image, or a text on the topic of celebrating 25 years of RIT Croatia.
