A Message from the Deans
Dear Friends,
The importance of having a proper business education in these trying economic times cannot be
overstated. As organizations grow, develop, and operate across borders, they require a workforce that
is internationally mobile, able to adapt to rapidly changing market circumstances, and represent capable and responsible global citizens. Even if you don’t have a background in business administration
or economics, an MBA can mean the difference between advancing within an organization and not.
The Zagreb School of Economics and Management, Croatia’s leading business school according to
Eduniversal’s global ranking, can give you the education you need to make that decisive step forward
in your career. Our Graduate Program includes nine different specializations to choose from and a
General MBA program, it is taught by a combination of Croatian and foreign professors and experts,
and uses advanced teaching methods such as computer simulations. Our outstanding student to
professor ratio guarantees a personal approach to your education, where every professor knows your
name and is attuned to your weaknesses and strengths.
Our MBA program has also received international recognition for its quality, as our Management,
Marketing, Management of Information Systems, Finance and Banking, Accounting, Auditing and
Taxes specializations were all listed in Eduniversal’s top ten lists for Eastern Europe. In this ranking,
our Human Resource Management was named the top specialization of its kind for Eastern Europe,
and our Quantitative Finance specialization was named as one of the 100 best in the world for the
second consecutive year.
ZSEM can also offer you a truly international educational experience, as you can spend a semester
at more than 100 of our partner universities and institutions, for no additional tuition cost. Our
Career Center can provide you with counseling on how to nurture your career after you graduate,
and will provide assistance whenever you need it. Thanks in part to our Career Center, 73% of our
undergraduate students find employment within four months of graduation.
Thank you for considering the Zagreb School of Economics and Management for your graduate
education. If you have any further questions about our programs or the services we offer, feel free

Learning Methods Adapted to You
At the Zagreb School of Economics and Management we pride ourselves on providing a personal
approach to our student’s education, along with the most modern educational tools, techniques,
and methods. Our students always work in small study groups, where they can communicate directly
with their professors and colleagues, and where lectures can be highly interactive and dynamic.
We aim to provide a bridge between theory and practice; our intensive use of computer simulations
and the case study method develops our students’ critical thinking and analytical skills. Business
theory isn’t very useful if one doesn’t know how to apply it in practice – and that’s what these
methods accomplish. The simulations utilized – Capstone, Markstrat, and HRManagement – put
students in the role of a virtual manager that must make business decisions in marketing, finances,
recruiting, product development, and in other areas. By analyzing the outcome of their decisions,
students learn how to utilize theory to adapt to changing market dynamics.
Our MBA students are also required to work on group and individual projects, developing their
teamwork skills, as well as their oral and written communication talents. Each specialization consists
of obligatory coursework and a graduate thesis. Students also have the option of taking specialized
elective courses, as well as courses offered by other graduate specializations at ZSEM.
Our program is perfectly suited to both recently graduated students and employed professionals that
are keen on developing their abilities and advancing within their organizations.
ZSEM’s Graduate MBA Program will help you:
• Plan and act more effectively in business circumstances, and help you grow as a leader and
manager.
• Develop your competitive advantages in order to successfully compete in the demanding international labor market.
• Develop a wide range of skills, as well as specialized and applicable business knowledge.
• Open up new possibilities for employment, even during your time in the program.
• Earn valuable experience by working on international business cases and diverse projects.
Our program is perfectly suited to both
recently graduated undergraduate students and employed professionals that
are keen on developing their abilities and
advancing within their organizations.

General mba
ZSEM’s General MBA is a special interdisciplinary program
that provides students with a wide range of course options. The purpose of this program is to offer students
the possibility of choosing the most interesting graduate
courses that ZSEM offers. This way, students can mold
their own educational experience that meets their learning goals.
In this program, students will take core courses in marketing, management, finance, banking, accounting, auditing
and taxes. However, they will also be able to choose elective courses from other MBA specializations, creating a
combination of courses that suits their individual needs.
For those that wish to have a broader MBA experience in
terms of acquiring knowledge and competencies from
different areas of business administration, our General
MBA represents an ideal choice.
Courses included in this program in the Management
module include Strategy, and Business Ethics and CSR,
in order to help students develop a grasp of strategic
thinking and to recognize moral dilemmas in business,
as well as make ethical business decisions. The Marketing
Simulation offered puts students in the role of a Marketing
Manager, who must make decisions in a virtual firm and
develop a marketing strategy. The Financial Institutions
and Markets, Financial Statement Analysis, and Financial
Reporting courses all aim to make students literate in
analyzing accounting and financial reports. Students are
required to take four elective courses during the program,
which will culminate in the creation of a Graduate Thesis.
Because of the more broad approach provided in this program, our General MBA is perfectly suited to those that
are just being introduced to business administration for
the first time. In today’s dynamic business environment,
organization members without a business background
are being asked to take managerial positions, while not
possessing the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in
them. This General MBA Program bridges that gap – if you
want to advance within your organization and develop the
skills and knowledge needed to succeed in a managerial or
leadership position, this program is for you.
Another special feature of this program is the possibility of
extending its duration without additional tuition charges,
i.e. the rescheduling of taking certain courses in the next
academic year.

MBA in Management
Managers are the ones ultimately responsible for the successful and efficient operation of organizations. However,
in order to accomplish this, managers must have skills and
knowledge that will help them succeed in such a role. They
need to adequately manage human resources because,
as the saying goes, every manager with subordinates is a
human resource manager. They need to be adept in using
leadership techniques and in strategic thinking. A strong
moral compass is a prerequisite for any modern manager,
as is an ability to manage projects, read into accounting
reports, and use statistics to reduce uncertainty in business decision making.
The MBA in Management at the Zagreb School of Economics and Management aims to help potential students
strengthen their understanding of the philosophy of management, develop analytical capabilities, and to help them
become the managers they can be. If you’re currently pursuing or wish to embark on a career in human resource
management, project management, e-business, or if you
just want to develop your strategic and leadership skills,
this program was designed for you. As part of this program, students will also take part in business simulations
that aim to test their decision making abilities and to help
them understand the consequences of their decisions.
ZSEM’s MBA in Management includes courses in Strategy,
Management of Change, Business Ethics, Project Management, Managerial Accounting, and more. In order to
give our students a broader view of how managerial decisions affect organizations, students will also take a course
consisting of a human resource management simulation,
Strategies for Managing Human Resources. The Markstrat marketing simulation will also be administered in
an obligatory course. As marketing and maximization of
company value are inherently linked, this course provides
students with an opportunity to fill the role of a marketing
manager in a virtual firm.
This program consists of two semesters of compulsory
coursework, followed by the creation of a Graduate Thesis,
totaling 60 ECTS points. Lecturers in this program include
Randy Richards and Dan Ebener (St. Ambrose University,
United States), Renata Franc (Ivo Pilar Social Sciences
Institute), Zlatko Mateša (President, Croatian Olympic
Committee), and many others. Our faculty also includes
Prashant Kale (Rice University, Texas), who was recently
included in Bloomberg Businessweek’s list of the best 10
business professors in the world.

MBA in Marketing
Marketing is a central function in all successful modern
organizations, regardless if they’re corporations, small
or medium size businesses, charities, and even in some
government institutions. The importance of marketing
in today’s society cannot be overstated; as technological
advancements have made it easier for companies to find
customers and markets in different parts of the world,
marketing has become a complex activity that transcends
the 4P’s; successful marketing is the key to survival of
many organizations.
Career options in marketing can also be very diverse. If
you decide to make the leap and specialize your skills in
this field, you can work for companies that engage in marketing activities such as brand management, strategic
management, or new product development. Also, you can
work for organizations that provide marketing services
such as marketing research, advertising, public relations,
or consulting.
The goal of this program is to prepare students for senior
marketing positions in a variety of organizations by developing their skills and knowledge in marketing, while
also transferring ethical business values. This program
will expose students to knowledge of marketing concepts
and theories, and will also teach them how to apply these
marketing concepts and theories in various organizational
and industrial contexts.
This program provides an optimal combination of courses
in marketing theory, such as Consumer Behavior, Product
Management and Design, Services Marketing, International Marketing and more, along with more qualitative
courses such as Marketing Research, Marketing Metrics,
and Price Management. Students will have to take part in
a marketing simulation in which their theoretical knowledge is tested as they assume the role of a marketing
manager in a virtual company.
Lecturers in this program include John D. Branch (University of Michigan, United States), Paul R. Murphy (John
Carroll University, United States), Daniel Butler (Auburn
University, United States), Patricia Loubeau (Iona College, United States), Thomas Baker (Clemson University,

MBA in Finance and
Banking
The ZSEM Graduate MBA Program in Finance and Banking, which is currently ranked among the 10 best programs
of its type in Eastern Europe, aims to prepare students for
a career in commercial banks, investment funds, insurance
companies, and other similar organizations. However, this
program is also perfectly suited for those that plan on
working in financial departments of companies operating
in other sectors, as well as for those that plan a career
in government institutions (the Croatian National Bank,
Ministry of Finance, Croatian Financial Services Supervisory Agency, etc).
The program consists of two semesters, and culminates
with the creation of a Graduate Thesis. The first semester
features introductory courses, such as Financial Mathematics 2 and Introduction into Financial Econometrics,
which both aim to transfer basic theoretical knowledge to
students in order for them to better understand modern
finance and financial data analysis. The first semester also
features Financial Management, in which students will
learn to analyze corporate securities in the primary and
secondary capital markets, as well as financial strategies.
The second semester then builds on the foundations laid
by courses in the first by going into further detail through
courses such as Financial Law, Financial Institutions and
Risk Management, Portfolio Management and Investments, and more. This program also includes a course in
Business Ethics and CSR, in which students will learn to
recognize moral dilemmas and create ways and processes
to solve them. Also, in the context of today’s global economic crisis and financial scandals, ethical behavior of
financial professionals has become more important than
ever before. The Zagreb School of Economics and Management is dedicated to producing not only world-class
financial experts, but also responsible global citizens.
A significant feature of this program is an optimal combination of basic theoretical knowledge of modern finance,
while connecting that theory with current practices which
are prevalent in today’s domestic and foreign financial institutions and markets. Lecturers in this program include
Hrvoje Volarević, Jurica Vukas, and Igor Jemrić (Croatian
National Bank), Dario Silić (Bina Istra), Andrej Grubišić
(Grubišić & partners), as well as other esteemed experts.

MBA in Human Resource
Management
Bill Gates once said: “Take our best 20 people away, and I
will tell you that Microsoft would become an unimportant
company”. As companies compete in the global marketplace with their products and services, they also compete with each other to attract the best and most talented
people. Bill Gates’ statement only rings truer today; as
global competition intensifies, companies are going to
greater lengths to attract and keep their best performers
and value creators. After all, great companies are made
by great people.
The MBA in Human Resource Management at the Zagreb
School of Economics and Management represents the
best step HRM managers can make in developing their
organization’s strongest competitive advantage; their
people. Our HRM MBA was recently placed at the top of
Eduniversal’s list of the best HRM MBAs in Eastern Europe. This program is designed for managers and future
business professionals that want to learn how to utilize
their people to achieve organizational objectives, who
wish to learn how to recruit star employees, how to manage change, create a HR strategy, and more.
Courses within this program include Recruitment and
Selection, Leadership, Management of Change and Human Resources, Performance Measurements and Reward
Systems, and others. Classes include examples of human
resource management in practice, video examples, case
studies, and are highly interactive. In this program, students will also take part in a computer simulation in which
they will assume the role of a Human Resource Manager,
and make decisions on recruitment, promotions, salary
increases, employee training, etc. Based on the outcomes
of their actions, they will learn how HRM theory relates
to practice. This program lasts for two semesters, in the
second of which students will have to create a Graduate
Thesis.
The lecturers represent a combination of Croatian and
foreign experts in the area of Human Resource Management. Study groups are small, as they are in all programs
offered by the Zagreb School of Economics and Management, and communication between professors and students is direct. Lecturers in this program include Dino
Dogan, Li Choy Chong and Markus Menz (St. Gallen University, Switzerland), Julie Felker (University of Michigan,
United States), Herman Lassleben (Reutlingen University,
Germany), Randy Richards and Dan Ebener (St. Ambrose

MBA in Supply Chain
Management
Supply chain management is the management of business activities starting from product or service design,
production, warehousing, distribution and logistics. At
the same time, planning and management integrate supply and demand, but also communication, facility location
and information exchange. All these activities have been
performed since the beginning of commercial activities,
but only in recent years have they been integrated and
considered as the opportunity to develop competitiveness
of the firm. Accordingly, a supply chain usually includes
suppliers, production, warehouses, distribution centers,
transportation system and customers. The success of a
supply chain depends on a good coordination of all this
elements. This is even more important taking into the
consideration the globalization and intense competition.
In these circumstances, the optimization of supply chain
processes is very complex. Adding to this the uncertainty
of demand, dynamic environment, investments in product
and process innovations, the supply chain story becomes
a great challenge and a good opportunity for experts interested in solving this kind of business problems.
MBA in Supply Chain Management covers both quantitative and qualitative issues needed to understand and
coordinate the whole supply chain system. The students
learn how to solve problems they can face such as the
tradeoff in making supply chain decisions, efficient supply
chain management, inventory control, demand forecasting and project management while combining the insights
and practical knowledge from management, managerial
accounting, financial management, logistics, software solution courses and quantitative and analytical methods
for solving the supply chain optimization problems. The
program was created by taking into account the most
recent global trends from the above-mentioned fields and
it also integrates the Croatian case studies.
MBA in Supply Chain Management lasts two semesters
and is completed with the defense of Graduation Thesis totaling in 60 ECTS. Lecturers are both from Croatia
and from abroad, academic environment and business
practice.
