About - Zagreb School of Economics and Management

Short programs


In this Leadership in a Croatian Winterland 2-week program, taking place from December 28, 2018 – January 11, 2019, the Zagreb School of Economics and Management, together with its partner St. Ambrose University, draws together a group of students from the US and a group of international students from around the world to gain insight into Croatia’s economic development while experiencing Zagreb Advent, which was ranked the ‘‘best Christmas Market” in all of Europe for the past two years..

The lecture part of the program includes morning and afternoon lectures on five days, while students will have many opportunities in the evenings for activities such as ice skating, snowboarding, skiing, classical concerts on Christmas balconies, pop-up winter garden concerts, gourmet food and drink sampling, souvenir shopping at the Christmas fair, and many more cultural activities.

At an additional cost, the program includes weekend trips to the world-renowned national park, Plitivice Lakes National Park, and also to Opatija, a Croatian village on the gorgeous Adriatic coast. Croatia is an ideal location for such a course because it is safe, affordable, friendly, beautiful and most everyone speaks English.

What students say about ZSEM?

Vitor Duarte

Professors at ZSEM are great since they resort to several innovative teaching methods, and most of the times I was able to learn from their personal experiences on the market. All of these made me feel very interested in the courses I was taking at the time and made me want to go for further knowledge.
