The IMB programme was a life-changing experience that was crucial for the take-off of my career. It equipped me with in-depth knowledge on various business topics and enhanced my financial, managerial and teamwork skills. It also altered my attitude; it made me understand that no professional challenge is too big to conquer.

CEO and cofounder at Modra jagoda, ltd.

In the 2 years since leaving IMB, I've started a business in Slovenia, won an international competition with my co-founders in Berlin, helped create a product that is used by nearly 50 % of Slovenian doctors daily, started another business in the US, worked with some of the biggest companies in pharmaceuticals, and I could go on and on. But it all started at IMB, where I met some amazing people, two of which are co-founders of the businesses I've started since. I can honestly say that if I hadn't gone through the programme, I would've never had the courage, knowledge or the people around me needed to start a business.

IMB helped me in developing personal, business, and social skills which currently are needed in the workplace. Personally I develop responsibility, openness and passion for doing a good job while working on the different class assignments and projects. Business wise I enhanced most of the key management concepts necessary to have a good wide overview of any company I would set foot in. And lastly it help me gain good intercultural communication, conflict management and team work as some of the necessary social skills to succeed in any work environment. Overall I was very pleased with the studies and the fact that it opened the door to many different interviews at the end of the program, with one ending as my employer for the last 5 years.

Project manager – International projects, Bisnode d.o.o.

I attended the FELU IMB programme in 2008 and functioned as the president of its 16th generation.

I feel that I owe it to the programme that I have been able to find such a motivating international working place which I currently hold here in my new home country, not to mention the many interesting and useful contacts I acquired through it.

I am now employed in Bisnode, one of the leading providers of digital business information in Europe, headquartered in Sweden. I am working as a Project manager for International Projects, and my work includes co-operation across many of the 19 European countries the company works in, and I get to work with an amazing and inspiring international group of people every day.

I consider myself very lucky, and to a large part I can thank the IMB and its mentoring programme for where I am now.

Project manager, Société Générale CIB, France (Paris)

I joined IMB's 17th generation in 2009 because I wanted to continue my studies in an international environment and gain transversal knowledge. The program not only provided me with a strong theoretical base, but gave me an opportunity to work with big Slovenian companies on marketing, HR and business projects. The most important thing I learned at IMB is how to work under pressure, how to structure and solve complex problems, and also how to work in efficient teams. Without a doubt, this knowledge helps significantly at my current role as a Project manager in a French multinational bank.

I would recommend this program to anyone seeking to improve their management skillset, deepen the knowledge and understanding of global management issues and push your limits beyond what you think you can do. This program brings Eastern European perspective to global challenges and is extremely valuable for anyone who wants to work in the CEE region.

The program is very intense in terms of content but also in terms of the process. However, the cohort style of this program made the difference. Spending all this time together with other students was rewarding. We have built meaningful connections that go beyond our career and many friendships will last a lifetime. The social aspect of this program made the hard work enjoyable and fun. Often times it felt like playing a team sport, we were encouraging each other, celebrating successes and learning from failures together. You never felt you are alone.

Enrolling in IMB program was a valuable investment for me. It has helped me grow both professionally and personally. By getting to know so many different teaching styles and learn from professors from all around the world, I discovered my passion for teaching that became my main focus after the IMB program.

When applying for IMB I had clear expectations: Broaden my horizons, learn how to be the best team player, and meet new bright and ambitious young people like myself. Fortunately, IMB by far exceeded my expectations.

Through real business projects we have all experienced how the business operates in practice and had the opportunity to present our impactful ideas to management of large companies. Many of our ideas were adopted and implemented by the companies. It is a true reward to receive such recognition while a student - to see that your ideas are implementable and potentially beneficial for the businesses in the real-life, outside of the classroom walls.

To put it in one sentence, the biggest takeaway from IMB is that hard work, dedication, ambition and proactivity always provide results which are even greater when you share them with your colleagues whom you have worked together.

Hi everyone, I am Marija, student of the second year of International, Full time master program - IMB on Faculty of Economic in Ljubljana. My first thought about the faculty was that it is modern, colorful and lively university, located in close proximity to the Ljubljana city center. Right on the hallway or courtyard you can see and hear many international students, which add special atmosphere and dynamics to the whole study period. This faculty is the places where I have spent some of the best days of my life by listening courses from many renowned, inspiring lecturers, meting new, brilliant colleagues from different cultures and backgrounds and attending numerous entertaining events at the Faculty premises. In busy days I particularly liked that faculty had everything that I have needed in one place, such as affordable student canteen, cafes, separate rooms where students can debate, study together, prepare presentations etc. Because of its practical way of teaching, putting more attention towards students and triggering competitive environment, during my studies I was highly motivated to learn more and achieve better results. Challenges such as numerous project work in multicultural teams and engaging course materials enabled me to broaden my horizons, to expand my social network and to learn through more practical teaching approach than I was used to. I have learned how to think out of the box, not to be afraid to express my ideas and feelings and to me more tolerate towards others who have different opinions and approach towards business. In one word studying on this Faculty was one unique and great experience!

"My professional career began with the IMB program. After my Bachelor degree I was eager to continue with my studies and I found the IMB program the most suitable for me.
The program helped me chose my professional path and define me as the person I wanted to become. It provided me with the knowledge needed to develop into a professional and a leader in my field of expertise, it gave me opportunities to work on real life cases and, last but not least, it helped me become a part of a high qualified network. The last is a benefit, which in today’s business is, in itself, a top priority.
It was through the IMB program that I was introduced to some companies, one of which is my current employer, I have been working with, for almost 5 years."

Attending IMB was invaluable to my career. I strongly believe that anyone in this program, given the ambition, will be given the opportunity to give back what it has learned to the community and the company, in the same manner as I had the pleasure to do so.
The education and experience that I gained at IMB allowed an easy, smooth, and rewarding transition from university studies to the private sector.
The program and the environment itself, the intensity of the program, helped me grow not just in professional manner, but managed to become more decisive, efficient and focused.
The constant interaction with the lecture staff provided me with the needed knowledge that feed my curiosity, while the long hours at university, gave me another invaluable reward- new friends.

I chose IMB because I wanted to continue my studies in international environment, where the focus is on gaining knowledge from practice and strong cooperation with various companies. My expectations were even exceeded when I met a group of amazing, ambitious and talented people with whom it was great to work with. It was an intense year of hard work, numerous projects and presentations, but at the same time a year to remember and be grateful for. When the end of the programme was approaching, we received many different job offers and everyone could find something for himself/herself. Equipped with practical knowledge, higher self-confidence and effective problem-solving approach, it is much easier for me to solve everyday challenges at work. In my eyes IMB is like an incubator for future business people who want to achieve great things in life. Joining IMB Programme was definitely one of my best decisions so far.

IMB is a strongly competitive environment that cultivates teamwork and emphasizes creative problem solving. Its culturally and professionally diverse student body makes an ideal setting where young international leaders are being shaped. Through real business projects, IMB students develop and present their bold approaches to management of leading SEE companies, who often adopt and implement them.

The rich experience I gained while at IMB helped me to prepare well for successfully pursuing my career in management consulting. It is why I would highly recommend this program to every ambitious person who is striving for personal development. Regardless of whether you know exactly what you want to do after your postgraduate study, like I did, or are overwhelmed by the possibilities, IMB will surely help you choose and pave your personal career path.

When I was considering options for my graduate studies I was also considering current main business practices. In todays’ environment startups, large multinational companies or any other kind of company have one thing in common. They all need to work on several markets and have a global mindset in order to really succeed. IMB gave me just that what companies currently need.
Working in teams with multinational and multidisciplinary background really opened my mind. It taught me that working in teams with background like that you can achieve anything, whatever the goal might be. As teams we were able to work on several consulting projects for various companies. The final result of the project was something that I would not be able to achieve on my own. Variety of the teams enables creativity, innovation, and international focus. This is exactly what companies currently need.
IMB is without any doubt one of the best programmes in this part of the Europe. Professors come from all parts of the world, from best universities, and cooperate with very successful companies. Programme itself is rigorous and demanding. Working in international teams is fun, despite all the workload, and when you finish the programme this makes a statement about who you are and how hard working you are. You can see that just by looking at the alumni. They work for largest companies in different parts of the world and many of them also run their own business.
IMB will prepare you for any type of career you wish to pursue and for the corporate world. Whether you want to become an entrepreneur or a manager in a successful company, IMB will provide you with the proper mindset and skillset to work anywhere. The choice is yours, IMB is there just to help you achieve your goals with its programme.
