On November 15th, 2019 RIT students that are currently enrolled in the Operations Management course were invited to the Konzum Logistics and Distribution Center in Zagreb. Two groups of 40 students were organized to have a tour of the center. Mr. Adrian Alajkovic hosted us throughout our trip. Not only is Mr. Alajkovic an adjunct lecturer at RIT Croatia but he is also Supply Chain Planning and Inventory Mgmt Director at Konzum. The students had the great opportunity to see all the concepts that they have been learning during their Operations Management course and how they can be implemented in business practices. They also were able to see which operations management strategies are used frequently at Konzum, how to measure productivity, how to organize a warehouse of that size and many other operations practices.
Croatian language is a challenging language to learn. For international students coming to Croatia to pursue their undergraduate degree, living and studying in a country where you are unfamiliar with the native language can be challenging and frustrating at times. Yet at RIT Croatia, the International Student Club (ISC) run by Emily Arnold, a fourth-year student, provides students the opportunity to learn and better understand the Croatian language.
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.
Choosing the right university and program of study are some of the most important decisions young people ever make, but they are also among the most difficult. Lack of information, pressure from parents or friends, financial concerns, and simple confusion can be overwhelming for young people and their families making this important life decision. But there is help out there! RIT Croatia professors, students and enrollment specialists offer guidance and suggestions to help make sure the college you choose is right for you.
Choosing a university isn’t easy. So it isn’t surprising that sometimes students enroll in a program that they expect will be interesting and useful, but later discover they made the wrong choice. Sometimes they find out that the subjects they are studying are not for them, or the relationships with professors and learning atmosphere simply isn’t motivating. That’s when transferring to RIT Croatia can be a great solution, and the start of a whole new chapter in their lives.
