Starting next fall, ACMT will be operating in two locations: sunny Dubrovnik and exciting Zagreb. The new Zagreb campus will offer Information Technology and International Business degree programs, while current programs in service management and information technology will continue in Dubrovnik.
"This is a great step forward for the college," said ACMT President and Dean Don Hudspeth. "As the capital of Croatia, Zagreb is an exciting and important location, and we are looking forward to taking advantage of the business connections and energy there."
ACMT Zagreb will be located on the campus of Croatian Catholic University.
ACMT alumni association organized an interesting business event on Saturday, December 11 in Zagreb.
The alumni association is aware that many students are wrapped into a busy every day schedule. Having that in mind, this event was designed to organize alumni speakers with various experiences and various everyday routines.
During the event, 8 invited speakers talked 8 minutes each. Tanja Vuković made an impressive 3-minute movie of her one-year long trip around the world (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sh7Bjs4f55I), sharing her impressions that left everyone speechless. Other alumni shared their unusual stories as well. The event culminated with an excellent motivational speech by Professor Puškarić about the various opportunities there are around us.
