FROM THE DEAN'S NOTE
PAR was founded as an independent educational institution almost ten years ago in the Croatian coastal city of Rijeka. With a progressive approach in both formal and informal education and a focus on learners’ needs, PAR has become a reliable partner for lifelong learning. We are devoted to developing international cooperation, which is evident in bilateral agreements with more than 15 HE institutions worldwide and the Erasmus Charter. PAR is known for providing professional knowledge and skills in the field of business management and language learning through the Business School PAR and the Business Academy Rijeka. The Business School PAR is the first and only private higher education institution in the County, while the Business Academy Rijeka proudly presents a list with more than 100 satisfied clients.
