May 26, 2019 – Can companies in Croatia become competitive on the global stage? A rich international gathering of international experts will explore the way forward at the MBA Croatia conference on this subject on June 6 in Zagreb.
One of the big differences in my life since moving from gorgeous Hvar to equally gorgeous Varazdin has been much closer contact with Croatia’s entrepreneurial class, much (but by no means all) of which is based out of Zagreb.
After spending 13 years on a lovely Dalmatian island where everything is dominated by tourism, it has been very refreshing to meet so many stimulating and motivated individuals doing incredible things in the IT and other sectors.
And while the bigger and bleaker picture portrayed that much of Croatia’s youth is emigrating in search of better economic opportunity. there is a determination to succeed right here in Croatia by the emerging entrepreneurial class which is increasingly attracting my interest.
One organisation which epitomises this is MBA Croatia, a group of academically trained professionals who are attending or completing their MBA studies. MBA Croatia will be celebrating 10 years of existence next month, and it will also be hosting what promises to be a useful and fascinating conference, on a sorely needed topic – How to become globally competitive from Croatia.
The event is introduced as follows by MBA Croatia:

That is why we gather best practice and the experience of companies such as: Oradian, Doking, Enikon, Rasco…
As we gather world-class leaders, we consider it important not only to inspire, but to talk about the execution itself. Having this in mind, the another round table is formed where we want to comment best practices from countries like Latvia, Malta, Turkey, Slovenia. Moderators will be experienced economists and analysts, and we will also prepare a special guest for Key Note lecture.
For us it is important the recognition of our initiative and funding from companies like Vlahović Group, Bagatin Clinic, HEP, Coca Cola …
