The Zagreb School of Economics and Management began operations in September 2002, with the enrollment of its first generation of students. This marked the beginning of a culmination of years of work towards the goal of bringing the best practices of business schools to Croatia.
The mission of ZSEM is to transfer values, knowledge, and skills that students need for long-term success in a globalized business world undergoing constant technological and market transformations.
In order to achieve its goal of transferring values, knowledge, and skills, our faculty produces intellectual contributions, primarily discipline-based, along with contributions to teaching and practice. We are focused on providing high-quality undergraduate and graduate programs. ZSEM’s wider social influence is evident in innovative programs and working methods, in the interaction of all stakeholders with the business community as well as in publicity, which is an important tool for building relationships with businesses and our broader community.
