Since the academic year 2011/12, the Faculty of Economics of the University of Rijeka offers a 3-year university undergraduate study program in Business Economics – “International Business”, which is from 2014/15 extended to an additional 2-year university graduate study program.

Students studying and completing a university graduate study program offered by the Faculty of Economics in Rijeka, will acquire competencies and skills important and needed in their future career as MAs in Business Economics. These include competencies in analysis, synthesis and complex problem solving in issues related to economics and business economics; development of critical thinking, possibility of self and associative learning, flexibility and adaptability, capability to apply research methods and procedures to creative problem solving in institutions and enterprises, their organisation and management as well as the ability to perform highly qualified jobs in the field of economics and business, i.e. the development and implementation of expertise and achievement into practice.

This enables student flexibility in shaping the study content according to their abilities and interests. In addition to regular academic contents, our programs develop students’ connectivity and understanding of global experiences and the Croatian economic practices.

Alongside our teachers, teachers from foreign universities and well-known experts from the industry and public administration are engaged as visiting lecturers within the teaching activity. Our students are strongly encouraged to apply for mobility programs in order to experience studies at our partner Universities across Europe (and beyond), as well as international internships, which are crucial for modern graduates, especially in the field of International Business.
