Program Overview

Program Description:
Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) through its partner university in Croatia, American College of Management and Technology (ACMT), offers a wide variety of courses to students across several different majors during its time-shortened summer session. Students will spend five weeks in the stunning city of Dubrovnik and while also earning course credits from an accredited U.S. university. Students have an option of enrolling in either one or two courses during the summer program. Courses are designed with both RIT and non-RIT students in mind. Students from across the U.S. and throughout Europe study side-by-side in this unique learning environment. Students take pre-approved courses that may be applied toward their degree while also experiencing the beauty and culture of Croatia. Upon successful completion of the coursework, students eligible for credit will receive an official transcript from Rochester Institute of Technology. The following courses for the Summer Abroad in Croatia program are available: * Nutrition and the Mediterranean Diet * Hospitality and Tourism in the Adriatic * Fundamentals of Sustainable Engineering * Global Business Environment * Dubrovnik, Venice & the Mediterranean Coast * The Conceptual and Ethical Foundations of Cultural Globalization * Environmental Science * Seminar: Social and Cultural Aspects of Interaction Design All classes are taught in English by world class faculty from Rochester and from around the world. The teaching methods promote interaction and active participation between students and faculty. Study abroad students are encouraged to get involved in activities outside of the classroom and to fully immerse themselves in their new environment.

For more than 10 years ACMT has made its home in Dubrovnik - providing students excellent support throughout their study abroad program. Upon arrival, students will participate in an orientation session that includes an introduction of staff members who will be available for assistance throughout the experience, a tour of the college, and much more! Student mentors assist with arrival, getting settled, and questions on living in Dubrovnik. Our helpful and knowledgeable staff is quick to respond to questions and can direct students to local resources. This study abroad experience will be further enhanced by day trips as well as some overnight excursions. Students have the opportunity to participate in field trips to Bosnia, Montenegro and nearby islands along the Dalmatian coast. ACMT also hosts other activities, such as beach barbeques, community service projects, guest lecturers, and other university events.
