About 2021 Conference

The Higher Education Institutions Conference is organized by the Zagreb School of Economics and Management (ZSEM) and Luxembourg School of Business (LSB).

In 2021 we successfully held a virtual HEIC with over 70 participants from 13 countries, and we want to keep that practice going. The 9th annual HEIC2021 Conference: Higher Education Institution as a Driver of Change and a Catalyst for Innovation was scheduled from 11 – 12 November 2021 with the support of AASCB International and ASHE.

The goal of the conference was to discuss relevant topics for Higher Education such as:

  1. Innovative financial models
  2. Empowering learning through technology
  3. Achieving Competitiveness – Focus on Quality and Higher Academic Standards
  4. Educating students for the future job market

The two-day conference involved the AACSB Accreditation Workshop, enabled attendees to gain a valuable look into the new AACSB standards and the accreditation process, as well as several interesting plenary sessions that covered various topics related to innovation and achieving excellence in the field of higher education.

Participants were also able to submit papers in accordance to the conference topics. Peer-reviewed papers were published in the proceedings, with an appropriate ISBN distributed electronically. A certain number of papers were selected as best papers and in the extended version recommended for publishing in an international journal.

The conference aimed to be the ideal platform for making international connections for future collaborations in various academic fields. Also, it allowed the exchange of the best practices that concern emerging areas related to entrepreneurship, innovation, strategy, technology, management and education.
