The Higher Education Institutions Conference is organized by the Zagreb School of Economics and Management (ZSEM) and the Luxembourg School of Business (LSB). This two-day conference will provide attendees with numerous quality suggestions and tips on how to become competitive in the higher education market, but also, how to improve and strengthen their skills. The conference will, as it always has, bring together experts in the field of higher education from all over the world, as well as global opinion leaders and policy makers in the field of quality and management of higher education institutions. Those days will be perfect for developing international connections, exchanging new ideas and enjoying the beautiful Croatian coast.

HEIC is being successfully organized from 2013, each year with numerous participants from all over the world exchanging their business ideas, connecting and sharing experiences. Next year’s 12th HEIC2024 is scheduled for September 2024 in Dubrovnik, Croatia.

The two-day conference will involve Keynote Speakers, paper presentation, as well as several interesting panel sessions that will cover various topics related to innovation and achieving excellence in the field of higher education.

Participants are able to submit papers in accordance to the conference topics. Peer-reviewed papers will be published in the proceedings, with an appropriate ISBN distributed electronically. A certain number of papers will be selected as the best, and in the extended version, recommended for publishing in an international journal. Furthermore, this year we will again be awarding the best Full Paper at the conference. Papers are accepted to be submitted until 1st of June 2024.

HEIC is a great example of a conference that allows you to make international connections with people from the fields of HIGH EDUCATION and BUSINESS.
