Abstract

This booklet that has caught your attention contains basic information about the AHEAD project sponsored by the EU’s TEMPUS grant. This project was carried out between University of Zagreb (and other Croatian partners) and four EU-based universities. The project was very ambitious and it is my pleasure to state that the great majority of the objectives were carried out with high quality during the 3 years project time span. The main results of the AHEAD project can be found in this booklet, and I would like to mention just a few of them: • A new MBA training started in Zagreb with international recognition • 61 subjects of 3 BSc/MSc trainings were reviewed and modified, • a study was created in order to determine the short – and long – term expert demand of the Croatian national economy, • computers, equipment and modern textbooks were purchased from European grant and • finally a personal note: it was spectacular to see the rapid development of University of Zagreb and generally the whole Croatia during the last 3 years. If our project contributed just a little bit to it, the effort certainly was worthwhile.
