What students say about ZSEM?

David Coss

Its amazing and rare that one country has all the beauty in the world. I will never forget my travel experience in Croatia.

Karolina Hajman

The program also involved trips to significant companies and factories in Croatia as well as a trip to the US embassy and the Croatian Chamber of Commerce. Combining the theoretical knowledge gained from lectures and learning about the experiences companies go through has really given me a deeper vision of how negotiations are done in the true business world.

Alice Wang

I enjoyed meeting the students and interacting with them. I really got to see the different cultural aspects and meet students not only from Croatia but also from other countries around the world.

Dan Chamness

This experience was one of the highlights of my college career. I had a chance to immerse myself in a new culture, learn valuable skills, and have a great time in the process!
