ALGEBRA – the best Croatian professional higher education institution
Algebra University College has been located since September 2009 at the premises of the University Campus in Zagreb, Ilica st. 242. Here, in superbly renovated and equipped structures from the early 20th century, the contrast between new technologies and longstanding architecture makes a stimulating and dynamic environment. With over 2500 square meters of space currently available, the Algebra University College seeks to raise the standards of equipment and design of professional higher education institutions in Croatia.
University Campus facilities include conference auditoriums, student classrooms and up-to-date computer laboratories with latest software and network components, continuous Internet access, sound and video conferencing equipment and air-conditioning. Available to students and lecturers as a place for work and study is also an Algebra internal library with books and magazines on computing and information science, digital marketing and business, and open virtual access to the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (FER) library system.
There are also spacious lounge areas for rest, relaxation and refreshment equipped with modern and comfortable furniture, coffee & tea vending machines and open Wi-Fi Internet access. Some University Campus apartments are newly furnished and may provide quality accommodation for quite a few students and teachers who wish to work and stay here.
Steve Jobs Auditorium is the main e-Leadership MBA conference and student classroom within the University Campus. Its flexible fittings and organizational setup may simultaneously facilitate different type of conference, meeting, round-table, classroom and free seating arrangements. The Steve Jobs Auditorium is equipped with up-to-date computer, software and network components, continuous Wi-Fi Internet access, sound and video conferencing equipment and air-conditioning. It may comfortably be used for virtual remote lectures and/or virtual class and conference participation. Hands-on is also a specialized internal bookshelf with open access to books and magazines on digital technology, business and leadership. A convenient self-serving lounge area inside the Steve Jobs Auditorium is furnished with coffee & tea machines, soft drinks and snacks, and continually available to students and lecturers while on class or guests on site.
In an effort to provide our MBA students with a hands-on experience, professional networking and to encourage academia-industry cooperation, some of the program modules and lectures are organized and take place off-site. At the local or international corporate headquarters of our partners, MBA students may get a glimpse of real life context of the case studies they work on, on how the actual business process materializes, and an opportunity to meet with and talk to in person with the most renown business leaders.
We may also turn to different off-site locations that provide inspiring and stimulating environment for ‘out-of-the-box’ learning experience and MBA teamwork and community building. Once per year, depending on the program schedule, the module lectures may take place somewhere at the seaside of the Adriatic Coast.
