At COTRUGLI Business School I met great people and we learned not just how to think out of the box, but we created our new boxes.
I am a University Professor in the field of IT, and all my life was IT-related. My Ph.D. was in core computing, my projects were related to information systems, but by enrolling COTRUGLI Business School my focus for business was broaden and my life-long learning experience was continued in the completely new filed. Now I coordinate Master Program at my University, my friends from COTRUGLI Business School are working together with my students on research projects, members from COTRUGLI family are sponsoring my research and industry-based projects, and we all together are not just reaching new horizons in collaboration, but also it makes a lot of fun for us.
Since I was awarded the full scholarship, at the beginning I felt a bit under pressure – would I meet the expectations, but thanks to my superb colleagues and great professors, that fear transformed into the fun already on the first module.
Having accomplished COTRUGLI EMBA program also boosted my self-confidence and self-awareness; now I am collaborating as a PI or Co-PI on research projects with colleagues from Europe, US, and Taiwan in setting the base for the better interoperable and multinational future. Just like the professors we had on our EMBA classes – multinational and multidimensional team of experts in their fields, interesting lectures and valuable hand-on examples, most of them I am still using in my everyday life.
Our EMBA journey was not easy, the schedule was though, a lot of teamwork we did, brainstorming during the nights, but the outcomes were something we were proud of. Our professors were not just teaching us; they were advising us a lot about different approaches and mindsets. In the end, that’s how we created our new boxes. All in one, my COTRUGLI EMBA program was a joyful and valuable experience.
