Tourism and Hotel Management

Why study?

  • Fastest growing sector in Croatia

    The service industry is the fastest growing sector in Croatia. Zadar has been voted the Best European Destination in 2016! Zagreb features the best Advent fair in Europe! Rijeka has been named the European Capital of Culture 2020! Make your place of residence the next top destination! Study tourism and discover how!

  • Enjoy travelling?

    Statistics show that only few people enjoy their line of work. Tourism is not only a job, it’s a passion leading you to new destinations and bringing new people to your destination. Working in tourism is a journey of always uncovering new landscapes.

  • It’s a good job

    You will meet new people, discover new destinations, acquire new customs, achieve plans that have so far just been a projection on your computer – and all this in a sector with a continuous growth trend. If that isn’t a good job… (we don’t know what is).
