That which the Business School PAR offers is an emphasis on the consultations system of athletes, and an individual mentoring approach to students that results in ease of monitoring of the content of the courses. Student athletes are also satisfied with the availability of all the work materials and literature that are subject to testing. With such an approach, our student athletes can freely devote themselves to their sports career, knowing that they will not lag behind their peers, and that by enrolling in PAR they are surely making an investment in their future.

 

The idea of creating a sports study group came into being in the year 2008 with the cooperation between the Business School PAR (then the Business Academy Rijeka) and the Rijeka Sports Association, umbrella organization of Rijeka sports. From the outset, the city of Rijeka gave its support to the initiative, investing in the education of top athletes of the region who represent future leaders of valuable capital.

Each academic year, the school records more students from various sports such as football, handball, water polo, tennis and volleyball. Among the many undergraduates of PAR is the prominent European and World Championship title holder in water polo, the celebrated Samir Barac, who upon completion of the study, became president of the Rijeka Sports Association, and the excellent student Ana Jelusic who is currently employed in the International Olympic Committee. Through the course of their studies, both set an example and gave evidence that investment in education is the best investment and as members of PAR ALUMNI are further involved in the work of the school itself.

 

The large number of student athletes currently engaged in education at the Business School PAR attests to the importance of the further education and training of athletes. Active are the water polo players of the Water polo Club Primorje and also the water polo representatives Ivan Krapic, Sandro Sukno and Andelo Setka, soccer players of the Rijeka Soccer Club Luka Maric, Ivan Vargic, Ivan Mance and Diego Zivulic, and numerous handball players, tennis players, etc.
