Students who choose to study abroad in Dubrovnik with API will take courses at DIU Libertas International University (DIU). DIU is the first private university in Croatia, ideally situated along the Adriatic Sea and located within the ancient city walls of Dubrovnik. The city of Dubrovnik is recognized throughout the world as a place with a distinct identity in terms of traits and factors which conditioned its development. These include diplomacy, international relations and trade, relations between civilizations and art. This rich heritage, along with Dubrovnik’s marvelous diplomatic and economic history, which is still evident throughout the ancient city, makes it the perfect location to pursue the study of international affairs and business.

The international relations and diplomacy courses offer an interdisciplinary approach to the constantly evolving field of international relations. Students consider a wide range of contemporary issues in international relations, from globalization to international organizations and international law to the role of civil society in global governance.  The international business courses will prepare students for professional positions in a global business environment by combining theoretical studies with more practical knowledge in international economics and business. Students will gain knowledge in the full range of business disciplines while developing the problem-solving and interpersonal skills necessary for success in the business world.

Courses are taught in English in an intimate and immersive setting with a diverse group of international students.
