This fall, RIT will open a second branch of its American College of Management and Technology in the Croatian capital city of Zagreb. The new campus, opening in September with an expected 80 students, joins the college’s existing campus in Dubrovnik.

Classes on both campuses will begin on Sept. 5. Those in Zagreb initially will be held in a shared facility with the Croatian Catholic University. After renovations, a building on the Croatian Catholic University campus will become the college’s permanent home in fall 2012.

Undergraduate degrees in information technology and international business and a graduate degree in service leadership and innovation targeting working professionals through evening and weekend classes will be offered on the Zagreb campus. The Dubrovnik campus offers undergraduate degrees in hospitality and service management and information technology; plans are under way to expand into other undergraduate programs. All courses are taught in English by American professors (including some from Rochester), along with Croatian and other international faculty.
