Zagreb School of Business was established in 2006 by the Open Public University Zagreb (POUZ), which is the largest adult educational and cultural institution in Croatia with a tradition and reputation nurtured for more than 100 years. Ministry of Science, Education and Sports of Republic of Croatia has issued a work permit for Zagreb School of Business on 11 October, 2006, and the license gave college the right to perform activities of professional study program in the field of marketing and communications. 

Study programs are developed in accordance with principles set by Bologna Declaration, which is adopted in most parts of Europe and represents a leading program dealing with the need to achieve greater compatibility and comparability in higher education systems. Due to this declaration, the higher education community is able to tell their national Ministers what kind of “European space” for higher education it wants and is willing to promote. Thus, universities and other institutions of higher education can choose to be actors, rather than objects, in these essential times of change.

After successful completion of the Undergraduate Program, students are awarded the professional title of marketing manager or communications manager.

Due to a growing interest for education in the fields of marketing and communications, the first generation of students was enrolled in the program in the 2006-2007 academic year.
