At RIT Croatia, we are all committed to preparing our students for careers of their choice; and we start preparing them from Day 1! Experiential learning and applying everything you learn in classroom in real-life situations is embedded in the RIT Croatia student experience in all programs.
One great example of 'learning by doing' is Business 1 course (International Business program) that our students take in their first year. They learn about key functional areas of business, evaluating business opportunities and feasibility of business ideas. They come up with their own business ideas which they developed through the remainder of the course. The course culminates with their final exam with students presenting and pitching their fully developed ideas in front of a jury comprising of business professionals – entrepreneurs and start-up owners.
This year the big finale took place on December 12 in ZICER, Zagreb Innovation Center. More than 100 first-year students were pitching their ideas to a jury consisting of true startup experts and owners:
The atmosphere was amazing; the pitching consisted of two sessions and at the beginning of the each session, two startup owners from ZICER welcomed the students and "pitched” their stories, just to showcase to the students how it should look like.
Students were creative in their ideas that ranged from event management, various web / mobile applications, virtual reality applications to ideas such as exporting construction services to remote locations in Africa. Jury members had lots of questions and gave lots of positive feedback to the students.
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.
