A university education isn’t only about getting a good job; at RIT Croatia it’s also about becoming a more interesting and cultured person – someone who thinks critically, communicates well, and understands themselves and others.
In addition to the deep knowledge that students learn in their chosen degree programs – International Business, Web and Mobile Computing, or Tourism and Hospitality Management – students at RIT Croatia can also broaden their knowledge by adding a second field of specialization called a “minor.”
