The American College of Management and Technology in Croatia, a branch campus of Rochester Institute of Technology, has dedicated a new home.
This fall, the college is holding classes in a renovated four-story, 13,000-square-foot structure in Dubrovnik. RIT President Albert Simone joined Jay Holmes, chairman of the college’s Board of Trustees; Donald Hudspeth, college president and dean; Ivo Mileti, head of county in Dubrovnik; Dubravka Šuica, mayor of Dubrovnik; and Radovan Fuchs, deputy minister of the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports of the Republic of Croatia at a dedication ceremony on Sept. 23.
Built in the late 19th century, the structure houses six classrooms, three computer labs with 110 units, a library and student area, and faculty offices. It is located next to a park.
Established in 1997, the college enrolls 610 students in two- and four-year degree programs in hospitality and service management. Faculty from RIT’s School of Hospitality and Service Management regularly spend full quarters teaching in Croatia. Managed by RIT’s College of Applied Science and Technology, the college of innovation, enrollment has grown from 175 students in its first year.
