RIT Croatia

In 1997, when RIT established its presence in Croatia, not many others had the vision to see what the country would be today – a popular tourist destination, bustling economy and new member of the European Union. With campuses in both the small coastal city of Dubrovnik as well as the capital city of Zagreb, RIT Croatia enrolls over 600 students not only from within Croatia, but throughout Europe, Australia, South America and the United States.

Courses at RIT Croatia focus on critical thinking, decision making and leadership - all of the skills that are needed for success in today’s borderless work environment. Croatia offers students an endless variety of exciting activities year-round. Most students are involved in extracurricular activities such as sports, clubs, student government, and charity projects. Students have the opportunity to engage in an academically rich university setting, gain valuable global experience, and meet new friends from around the world.

When you are in Croatia, your learning will continue beyond the walls of the classroom. Visit the ancient Roman salt flats that are still in production today. Attend numerous cultural festivals that are unique to the Dalmatian Coast. Learn about the geography of the region through your exploration of the northern coast and Plitvice Lakes National Park. Walk atop the Dubrovnik city walls, go for a hike, or take a ferry to one of the many nearby islands.

Kosovo

It all started with a vision of a high quality, American-style university for Kosovo, an institution to promote economic and institutional development by educating the next generation of leaders. RIT’s global presence in Kosovo (A.U.K.) is the result of that vision. In March of 2002, community, government and business leaders began to explore the possibilities. Initial funding came from the Fund for the Reconstruction of Kosova, made up of the voluntary contributions of the Kosovar Diaspora living all over the world. In 2003, this group working in collaboration with RIT founded A.U.K.

Today, over 600 graduate and undergraduate students are enrolled at this university. Undergraduate students earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Arts and Sciences through the Center for Multidisciplinary Studies with an option for professional concentration areas in management, information technology, public policy, economics and statistics, and media and graphic communications. Students can also earn a liberal arts minor in policy, economics, legal studies and international relations. Graduate students earn a Master of Science degree in Professional Studies with concentrations in service management, project management, infrastructure development, and public service. RIT and A.U.K. provide the foundation for students to not only adapt to the constant change within the technical, managerial and business environments, but also to be its leaders.

RIT’s degree programs in Kosovo attract full-time and study abroad students from more than 20 different countries. It offers students a great opportunity to interact in a multinational classroom and get better prepared for the globalized world we live in. The university strives to demonstrate its philosophy of tolerance and diversity, promoting these same values within the greater society.

As Europe’s newest democracy, the country is represented by a blend of internationals and local individuals with a passion for development while continuing to value and recognize the historical significance of the region. The large youth population creates a vibrant energy and exciting night life. Students at A.U.K. are involved in many different clubs and sport activities. Friday Forum Lectures on campus enable students to debate and discuss the burning issues that concern the European and the Kosovar society. The lectures will be especially interesting to those students who wish to expand their knowledge on international diplomacy, economics, and foreign policy.
