After a dozen of successful Schools, the Faculty of Economics in Rijeka is organizing the International Summer School - «International Environment and European Integration», which will be held from July 2 to July 14, 2018, in Rijeka.
Throughout its entire history, the Summer School has educated more than 300 participants from more than 30 countries of Europe and beyond (Republic of Croatia, Belgium, Russia, Taiwan, France, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Armenia, Mexico, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, etc.).
The goal of the EFRI Summer School is to broaden the knowledge of students of economics, law, political sciences, administration and other related studies on the economic integration process in Europe and its effects on business and other aspects of environment, and to point out the advantages and challenges of economic integration in everyday life.
This program will consist of lectures, workshops and assignments to be completed in groups with the support of academic supervisors. Due to its specific approach, the School will be appealing both to students with basic knowledge of EU matters and those who want to know more.
The Summer School is developed in cooperation with the local community, successful Croatian companies, domestic and foreign institutions. Lecturers will be from Croatian and European Universities, as well as other institutions.
Participants will be awarded with 6 ECTS credits, after successful completion of the program. The official language is English.
