For my company, education and professional development of employees is one of the key values, therefore I am grateful that management recognized my potential and made this experience possible for me.
Personally, I would classify COTRUGLI MBA program as innovative and refreshing comparing to conservative approach I have experienced during my study at university.
As benefits I see working in groups of different individuals and backgrounds, which is very similar to work environment, professional and excellent international lecturers, networking and elaboration of what you actually have learned through real cases from different industry. One citation from Personal development I remember frequent while working in very diversified industry; “We cannot control each other, we can influence”.
Although was not always easy to balance work and private life parallel with EMBA program, I used opportunity from many aspects to learn more and I took extra mile during these two years, which contributed to improvement of my personal performance.
For me as SD&HSE Director I would highlight strategic marketing, digital transformation as well as financial management as beneficial due to the fact that I gained some new horizons beside my “technical background”.
Throughout the program, we were provided with tools which we can use on a day-to-day basis in business, as evidenced by our final work thesis Boating.hr.
Experience with COTRUGLI team was good, we had the opportunity to continuously give feedback which was important due to changing environment in many cases within my groups. Therefore, I would definitely recommend program to new students.
