The Students of Business Economics and Finances often participate in various national and international competitions. Every team has its mentor, and in 2015 our students won the 1st place in the PAR start-up clinic which was held in Rijeka. They also won the 3rd place in the international NIBS Business Plan competition in Finland and participated in the Business Plan Competition in Missouri, USA. Besides partaking in various projects, the students also participate in a debate club where they discuss current issues in economics and also regularly go on academic field trips.
