Previously published

Each year, Algebra brings together 12,000 students and 500 faculty members. Algebra’s new campus is the most significant private investment in education in Croatia, and its opening at the beginning of April marks the 24th anniversary of the Algebra Group. The biggest and fastest-growing private education group in Croatia is also one of the largest educational institutions in this part of Europe, based on the number of college students and seminar attendees. 

New creative spaces

The new modernly equipped multidisciplinary space will ensure the most advanced educational environment in line with international standards for generations to come.

The Algebra campus building has been built for the A+ energy class. At the same time, all the classrooms are equipped with an air recovery system, which increases the quality of the classroom experience and achieves green energy savings. The floors are made of recycled materials. 

The facilities span almost 12,500 square metres, and feature 35 lecture rooms. Each room is named after a famous innovator or scientist, such as Nikola Tesla, Steve Jobs, Ivan Lupis, Faust Vrančić, Ruđer Bošković, Slavoljub Penkala, Ivan Vučetić and the recently deceased professor emeritus, Slavko Krajcar, the first rector of Algebra University. 

In addition to the newly furnished classrooms, equipped with almost 700 computers, laser projectors and equipment for remote teaching, the teaching process will also take place in 14 individual online classrooms for remote education and training.

The Art Room, 3D Production Room, Video & Audio Studio, Podcast Room, and Innovation Lab are equipped to support related projects and skill development. 

The new university campus features a co-working space for 35 people and a library equipped with 18,500 books, covering 120 percent of the requirement for the number of enrolled students. 

The Zagreb campus has also gained a significantly larger international testing centre. 

Algebra’s development strategy

Algebra’s strategy includes achieving a nearly 70 per cent increase in enrollments by 2026, including those from abroad. So far, more than 150,000 individuals have completed educational programs. 

Our development strategy is based on advancing quality and education in line with the global economy of the future, strong internationalisation and creating the preconditions that will allow Algebra to soon transform into a university and become the leading educational institution in digital and hybrid formats. 

Over the next four years, we will maintain our agility in education and our position as the leading business school. We also intend to continue providing reliable support to companies looking for talented employees and being an important partner to fast-growing technology companies. 

Tomislav Dominković, Chairman of Algebra Group Management Board

Dominković also said that Algebra would continue to invest in research, development, and projects to ensure its university’s quality and meet the expectations of both domestic and international students as well as its 500 faculty members.
