Croatia has a lot of talent which spans numerous fields. From the world of sport to science, technology, medicine and engineering, this little country has a lot to offer. One large American multinational company has seen the opportunities Croatia can offer with its many talented students, and is furthering its collaboration with various educational institutions in the country.

As Poslovni Dnevnik/Sergej Novosel Vuckovic writes on the 27th of June, 2019, GlobalLogic, a multinational company with a strong international presence, has been working on the strengthening of its overall collaboration with faculties in order to, within five years, access innovative and talent personnel for employment in software development in the automotive, entertainment and health sectors.

The US-based multinational IT company GlobalLogic, specialised in product engineering, is strengthening its investments in IT education programs in Central and Eastern Europe, which also implies the Republic of Croatia, where it collaborates with four faculties (FER, FSB and PMF in Zagreb, and FERIT in Osijek), with the aim of enabling professionals to work on GlobalLogic’s projects for the various different industries to which it caters.

In the Republic of Croatia, there are now a hundred such people working in Zagreb, and owing to the training programs provided by the company in the coming five years, that number should be three times higher, while in the thirteen centres belonging to GlobalLogic for software engineering in Poland, Slovakia and Ukraine, there are now more than 6,000 engineers.

“We work on a lot of projects using state-of-the-art technology and we need the best people available on the market. We employ software development engineers who have unique know-how and are excellent mentors,” says Vladimir Kosanović, GlobalLogic Croatia’s director.

The American company will, in line with their aforementioned desire for more engineers in Croatia, conduct courses for beginners as well as for professional developers, mentors, and more. The aim of which is to support and digitise the societies of the above-mentioned countries by supporting young talent and investing in their development, as well as engaging in the extensive exploration of new information technologies.

The educational strategy of the company is also focused on business growth in Europe as well as strengthening their engineering segment and their overall market position.

The company’s concern for the academic community in Croatia, where many of its future employees are, has been confirmed by various projects such as the FERIT’s Masters study program, called Autoc, which will begin in Osijek this year, and the supporting student competition called Elektroboj, as well as the project which involves students from various universities in Croatia in the development of the first Croatian electric racing car.
