Being a lawyer by background and education after more than 12 years of professional career in banking and law industry and being an equity partner in one of the biggest Croatian law firms in 2011 I realized that I have to get more proficient with numbers and industry trends in order to progress both professionally and personally.
Therefore, I chose to enroll to Executive MBA program in 2012 primarily while modules where organised during the weekend and it seemed feasible to manage professional and private life while learning.
During my two years in COTRUGLI Business School I remembered that I loved learning and have met friends for life who also became my business partners and clients today.
I realized that I wanted to test myself as independent service provider and I have successfully started business of my own and due to skills and lessons I have received during my EMBA course I still run and develop my business.
The numbers became my friends and I have learned to understand better the functioning of economy and society as a whole and I have also learned to identify better when to introduce other experts.
So COTRUGLI Business School not only helped me to realize myself as entrepreneur but also plant a seed of gender equality during my Business communication module held by great Marijo Bos who run as PWN Global president at that moment. A group of my colleagues and I spent a whole year preparing business plan for our city network of PWN Zagreb using all skills and tools we received during our MBA courses. Today I am proud to share with you that PWN ZAGREB is one of the NGO constantly growing and increasingly having social impact on gender related issues by advancing the way women and men work together.
