On Saturday, September 25, Milena Kužnin, a faculty member at RIT Croatia’s Hospitality and Tourism Management program, held an interesting lecture on the topic "Emotional Intelligence (EI) – Why is it important and how to develop it” in Kulturni Centar Jadran in Dubrovnik.
The guest lecture came up as a result of collaboration
between Milena Kužnin and Ivana Tepšić, an RIT Alumna who is one of the
founders of Kulturni Centar Jadran in Dubrovnik.
"I have known Ivana Tepšić not only through teaching several
courses, but also through co-mentoring her senior project with Dr. Besim
Agušaj. Even after her graduation, I have remained in contact with Ivana, as I
do with many of our Alumni; close connections we create with our students during
their studying years last a lifetime and make room for fruitful collaboration, such
as this lecture”, said Milena Kužnin.
Kulturni Centar Jadran, with Ivana and its other founders,
represents a healthy and inclusive platform for expressing creativity in urban
Dubrovnik. The center gathers diverse and multigenerational audience in seek of
relevant and up-to date topics. On that note, Milena’s lecture was also an open
type lecture as it was available to all who were interested in learning more
about the importance of properly understanding and developing emotional
"The choice of topic came as a result of a conversation with
Ivana Tepšić, and the goals of the lecture were to explain the significance of emotional
intelligence in crises situations, both professionally and personally, and to
demonstrate the importance of developing emotional intelligence as a social
value, and not only as a personal trait. Most importantly, I recognized the
negative aspect of emotional intelligence by talking about possible
manipulation,” commented Milena, who was very grateful to see many current and
former students, as well as many colleagues from RIT Croatia, who came to
support her lecture among other interested visitors.

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.
