Croatia Study Abroad

Croatia is a hidden gem in Europe, lovingly referred to as the Pearl of the Adriatic. This beautiful, serene, coastal city is bordered by crystal clear azure waters. The landscape is so magnificent, that the hit HBO series “Game of Thrones” was filmed along the coasts of Croatia. This study abroad experience not only allows travel to a new country but will also teach you to better understand local culture while adding important experience to your resume. The Croatia Global Entrepreneurship Program will do all three in a convenient 2-week period. If you’re having a difficult time fitting a study abroad experience into your degree plan then this is the perfect option for you.
