MLEA promotes dual career with a new ambassador

The Zagreb School of Economics and Management (ZSEM) is leading the international Erasmus curriculum development project, i.e. the educational program for professional athletes and former athletes that will enable them to have new business careers after they have completed those sports.

In addition to ZSEM as the leader, the consortium of the project consists of the Olympic committees of Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, the EUSA Institute in Slovenia, as well as two universities - the Stockholm School of Economics from Sweden and the German WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management. The project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.

MLEA project partners

The MLEA (Micro Learning Entrepreneurship for Athletes) project will enable current and former athletes in the region to acquire the necessary business knowledge and skills to facilitate the transition from sports to business and entrepreneurial careers by developing specialized, tailor made programs for current and former athletes in the region. The focus of the programme will therefore be precisely on the development of entrepreneurial and business skills, and the project is specific in that it will also include elements of gamification and micro learning methodology.

MLEA meeting

Former Croatian President and the Croatian Olympians' Club Ms Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, who became a member of the International Olympic Committee last year, will also be actively involved in the project. In her new position, she will support ZSEM's ambition to further expand international co-operation and engage even more actively in international projects.
