The Jubilee 10th International Higher Education Institutions Conference will be held on September 22nd and 23rd in Dubrovnik, Croatia. The Higher Education Institutions Conference is organized by the Zagreb School of Economics and Management (ZSEM) and the Luxembourg Business School (LSB) with the support of AACSB International.
This two-day conference will provide attendees with numerous quality suggestions and tips on how to become competitive in the higher education market and help with tips on how to improve and strengthen your skills. Also, those two days will be perfect for networking, exchanging new ideas and enjoying the beauties of the Croatian coast, so the decision on the venue of the conference fell on Dubrovnik.
Dubrovnik is one of the most popular cities in Croatia and it is often called the Pearl of the Adriatic. It is located in the south of the country and is one of the most visited Croatian cities. It is known for its rich cultural and historical heritage, local Mediterranean cuisine, beautiful beaches, palaces, galleries and museums. The old town of Dubrovnik is located under the hill Srđ and it is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
It has a strong historical background as one of Europe’s most important ports and major maritime trading centers. It was founded in the 7th century and was the only city-state on the entire Croatian coast from the 14th to the 19th century. Dubrovnik also became an important Mediterranean sea power from the 13th century onwards. Although severely damaged by an earthquake in 1667, Dubrovnik managed to preserve its beautiful Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque churches, monasteries, palaces and fountains.
The 1940-meter-long medieval walls are one of the city’s biggest attractions and are open to tourists. Dubrovnik is one of the most cultural places in Croatia, offering numerous cultural events and festivals throughout the year. It has become one of Europe’s most famous cities and a great film set for many films and historical dramas such as Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Knightfall – and most recently Robin Hood. A short ferry ride from Dubrovnik shares it with the island of Lokrum, famous for its beautiful botanical garden and Benedictine monastery. One of the greatest experiences are the peacocks and rabbits that run around freely, as well as the magical lagoon where visitors can swim during the warm summer months.
Apart from being a well-known tourist destination among people all over the world, Dubrovnik is known for its rich religious heritage. The Church of St Blaies, the Franciscan Monastery and Museum and the Dubrovnik Cathedral are just some of the many worth seeing.
Dubrovnik has always been a meeting place for various nations, cultures and religions. As such, Dubrovnik seems to be the ideal venue for a conference which is an ideal platform for establishing international connections for future cooperation in various academic and business fields. It will also enable the exchange of best practices in new areas related to entrepreneurship, innovation, strategy, technology, management and education.
