Algebra’s new identity encourages a different future for education in Croatia

As one of the two biggest educational institutions in Croatia, through more than three hundred thousand educational courses, we have enabled our graduates to be employed in companies such as Google, Amazon and Microsoft. After more than twenty years of providing education and 120,000 graduates of the University College and Public Open University, as of today, we stand as an integrated educational institution with a new visual identity. Higher educational courses and adult education continue to be provided in more than 15 cities across Croatia.

“As ideas spread and as we grew together, numerous projects were produced within Algebra that would have no difficulty in functioning independently on the market. All the educational projects were designed with the highest standards and excellence and bring long term benefit, particularly for our students. Our courses are unique – innovative, applicable, useful and focus on quality and constant improvement. It is precisely for this reason that we would like to present it as a brand and give them the same signature; the same common identity and to send a unique message about what stands behind the Algebra brand”, explained Mislav Balković, PhD, Board Member and Dean of the University College.

The Chairman of the Board, Tomislav Dominković, referred to the twenty years of Algebra with these words: “We have educated more than 120,000 people since we started.  Our 110 full time employees and 500 professional associates, teachers and lecturers annually educate more than 15,000 new students. With a 20 per cent annual growth rate, we are probably the only institution in Croatia that is developing organically and independently at this pace. All of us at Algebra enjoy what we do and it is with great pleasure that we convey this to people eager for knowledge. Such integration of all of the courses under the umbrella Algebra brand, offers current and future students a new educational model and a different educational future in Croatia”.

 

Useful knowledge is the common denominator of all our courses and our students are ready for the labour market as soon as they graduate.

 

“It can be better in Croatia; success requires opportunity for growth and acquiring new knowledge. Algebra was created with precisely this idea – that everyone can, at any moment, make a turnabout regardless of his/her previous life choices and for such change to occur, a spark is needed. Companies in which Algebra graduates today work include Google, Microsoft, Rimac Automobili, SPAN, Five, Ericsson Nikola Tesla, Infinum, Intel, VMware, Infinum, Amazon, Dell, etc. We see this spark in our lecturers as well as in our students and now we wish that this spark spreads to other young people to encourage them in their professional and personal achievements“, added Hrvoje Balen, Algebra Board Member.

We hope that you like our new visual identity and look forward to new international experiences with you – various students coming from all parts of the world. We truly believe in the importance of education and our new slogan empowers our thoughts and aspirations:

Excel at what you love doing. Light a spark!
