Later in 1997 he became a lecturer at Faculty of Economics in Zagreb and in 2003 an associate Professor. Since 2000 he holds the position of Vice Governor of the Croatian National Bank, and in 2012 he assumed the position of governor.[2] He held that position upon Croatia's accession to the European Union.[3] However, he refuses an international bailout scenario as the country faces the post-2008 financial crisis.[4]
