Zagreb School of Economics and Management (ZSEM) is a private business school located in Zagreb, the capital city of Croatia. ZSEM has been awarded by AACSB accreditation in 2013, placing ZSEM as a top Business School in Croatia. Eduniversal, the French portal known for its rigorous quality assessments, has for the fifth consecutive year selected ZSEM as the best business school.
ZSEM is situated in a quiet neighborhood in the Northeast of Zagreb. It is a combination of urban campus with the calmness of the suburbs. Our campus is a remarkable place to spend your student years. ZSEM’s campus is well connected to the rest of the city through Zagreb’s public transport system. Standard bus lines from Kvaternik Square, one of Zagreb’s main public transport hubs, can bring you to ZSEM in just a matter of minutes. Five minutes away by foot from ZSEM, you can catch a tram that will take you to Zagreb’s main square, from which you continue to any other point in the city.
