“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has” by Margaret Mead was a first thing I remember from the start of COTRUGLI MBA program and up until today I keep finding proof confirming that.
I have been working as a scientist in drug discovery since 2002. After a few years I have decided to make a change and continue my career outside the lab. I was aware that my general knowledge in business was not on a high level and therefore decided to invest in an MBA education. Searching through available options, I was introduced to COTRUGLI MBA through their scholarship program.
Even after 10 years, I still believe that this was the best decision I made to develop my career. Joining MBA was an eye opener to a completely different world to me, world of business. Being taught by first class lecturers and constantly being surrounded by high skilled people from
different career backgrounds, who challenge me to do better and be better, was a perfect start of a new chapter. The networking edge an MBA gave me is truly unparalleled. Being a team member and staying connected with those amazing people who are spread through the region is absolutely a fortune.
After I finished MBA, with my working experience and the acquired knowledge, my career developed very fast, moving from labs to business development and finally to the position of Managing Director in just 5 years.
The program helped me to discover new ideas, new fields, and new areas of interest and to give me a solid ground for the position I have today. Going through it, my self-confidence increased by improving the knowledge and self-awareness to the level I could never imagine before. What I learned at COTRUGLI Business school is that if you can unlock your passion and develop entrepreneurship spirit, everything you wish for your career is possible.
