COTRUGLI Business School help me to Moonshot my career. Although I was very lucky at the start of my career and was able to gain a lot of knowledge and practice thru it, which led me to position of managing subsidiary of German Facility management company in Slovenia. I was looking for a way to “refresh” my management knowledge as I see black holes in it, no matter how much time I devoted for self-learning.
The revelation came in form of COTRUGLI Business School scholarship selection process in Ljubljana. I was excited with the energy of the COTRUGLI students and graduates, as well with the qualifications. The event was prepared so well I knew what my next step shall be. What have also surprised me a lot, was an opportunity to attend their regular meetings in Ljubljana, so I was eager to start the journey. Unfortunately an event in private life has stopped me for a while, but I was decisive to enroll and finish the school.
And I will never regret my determination and decision! Although it was hard to balance all private and business activities with school, I was always hardly waiting for next module: First to meet again with my colleagues or better to say lifelong friends, with whom you can always exchange opinions openly and who has supported me in hard times. Second to listen to great lecturers, who were always prepared for discussion and has shared their knowledge with you for free. Third to get insight and understand new trends and tools those are happening in the world and how to apply them in our everyday life. And last but not least to have fun. Although lectures required a lot of concentration and seriousness, we have had fun all the time. If lectures in our schooling system would be like this, I would be permanent student.
But the lecture of Mike George has really influenced me and has pushed me to rethink my future career. With the help of amazing colleague I was able to follow my passion and land current position in Taiwan, covering also China. And I believe I can successfully work in this totally different cultural and business environment than ours, due to knowledge and experiences obtained during the COTRUGLI EMBA program.
