About us

At COTRUGLI Business School, we are driven by a profound understanding of the dynamic nature of the business world and the importance of embracing innovation, while simultaneously upholding traditional values. It is this unique blend of timeless wisdom and forward-thinking approach that defines our institution.

In recognition of the profound impact of innovation and the enduring relevance of traditional values, we have chosen to name our School after Benedetto Cotrugli. Benedetto Cotrugli, also known as Benedikt "Beno" Kotruljević, was a distinguished citizen of the Dubrovnik Republic during the 15th century. His multifaceted career encompassed the roles of merchant, humanist, scientist, and diplomat.

One of Cotrugli's remarkable achievements was the authorship of "The Art of Trade" in 1458, a seminal work that is widely regarded as the first comprehensive exposition of double-entry bookkeeping principles and methods. This groundbreaking contribution to the field of finance and accounting solidified his place in history. However, his book extended beyond financial matters; it delved into personal development and highlighted the intrinsic value of ethical conduct in business. These timeless principles of personal growth and ethical business practices were the driving force behind our decision to honor Mr. Cotrugli by naming our school after him.

At COTRUGLI Business School, we hold these principles in high regard and infuse them throughout our educational portfolio. Our curriculum and approach are designed to instill a deep sense of ethics, integrity, and responsible leadership in our alumni. We recognize that success in the modern business landscape goes beyond mere profitability; it requires a holistic understanding of societal impact and the cultivation of long-term sustainable practices.

At COTRUGLI, we foster a culture of innovation, collaboration, and lifelong learning, enabling our alumni to become influential leaders who drive positive change in their organizations and communities.

Join us at COTRUGLI Business School as we honor the legacy of Benedetto Cotrugli and embark on a transformative educational journey that blends tradition and innovation, ethics and entrepreneurship, to shape the business leaders of tomorrow.
