It’s no secret, the most common reason for choosing an MBA program is to acquire more specific skills and knowledge of business management. My personal motive was exactly that – after a couple of years of dynamic business experience in Agrokor and Konzum, I wanted to develop further and learn more through real business situations from other industries. Another great motive for enrolling in an MBA program is networking, teamwork, and learning from other people’s experiences.

I chose Algebra because of the quality and globally relevant lecturers who share their knowledge and experience here. The modules that I had the opportunity to listen to at the Algebra e-Leadership MBA study are full of real business experience that the lecturers have gathered during their business careers. Algebra thus prepares its students in the best way for the challenges of leading organizations in the era of a rapidly changing economy that is full of digital and process innovations.

It is also important to me that in my workplace, in the position of Business Development Manager at the company Tokić doo, I use a lot of knowledge acquired during my MBA studies, especially in the areas of Strategic Management, Project Management, Leadership (team management), and Digital Transformation and Business Modeling process.

The biggest challenge of my studies was how to balance all business, private and student obligations. However, all this can be coordinated with the support of close people and colleagues, as well as with good organization. In the two years that the MBA course lasted, I got married, had two children and had a career change twice, and yet I managed to attend all the lectures and pass all the exams on time. Lectures are held on weekends, which is ideal because I was able to devote myself to the lectures as much as possible, and I completed student assignments during the working week after business commitments.

And yes, I would definitely point out that through various modules, as well as study trips (HQ Amazon Ireland; HQ LinkedIn Ireland; HQ Infobip Vodnjan), we got a concrete insight into new trends in the industry, which again gave us a new perspective on things, and expanded the circle acquaintances with experts from different fields.
