RIT Croatia, formerly known as the American College of Management and Technology (ACMT) was established in Croatia in 1997 when the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports of the Republic of Croatia initiated the establishment of private higher education institutions. Due to its reputation in creating and maintaining successful international partnerships, one of the most prominent private American universities, Rochester Institute of Technology, was chosen as the best partner in these efforts.
The American College of Management and Technology in 2013 has changed its name to RIT Croatia (Rochester Institute of Technology Croatia) in order to fully comply with the parent institution - Rochester Institute of Technology.
Two Exciting Locations
RIT Croatia offers programs of study at two campuses, one located in the coastal resort city of Dubrovnik and one in the country's capital, Zagreb.
Scholarships and Financial Aid
In order to support qualified students in financing their studies, RIT Croatia has secured over € 350,000.00 for financial aid for enrollment in the 2017/2018 academic year. Scholarships and financial aid are monetary funds applied towards the tuition cost of attending the university over four years of study.
