The Faculty hosts many conferences and publishes scientific journals, but it is also an important factor in Croatian economy. It influences, to a greater or lesser extent, the creation of Croatia’s economic policy. The biggest Croatian enterprises today recognize the Faculty as an important strategic partner. The Faculty is the holder of several research and professional projects whose content is predominantly linked to problems of contemporary economic matters in the Republic of Croatia. This orientation has enabled our lecturers and associates to express their research and consulting potentials.
