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.
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.
RIT named by Princeton Review as among nation’s best universities for value and career outcomes for students
In addition to RIT Croatia Freshmen Orientation that took place last week, School of Information from RIT's Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences held an online Global Orientation for its Web and Mobile Computing students in Dubrovnik and Zagreb, Croatia, and Dubai, UAE on Monday, August 31.
Another academic year has started and though we are happy to see our students start and continue to achieve success in their academic lives, a lot of things have changed in just one year. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone's lives globally and made us adapt to what some call the „new normal“.
