“What does learning mean: accumulating knowledge or transforming your life?” P. Coelho

Since I was a little girl I have loved to create. So the only right decision for me was to enroll the Faculty of design in Ljubljana. I did a major in Fashion and Textile design but when I have finished it, I realized that something in my skills is missing.
I found out, that the only right decision for me to get the strongest base possible for my future career, is the IMB program. It is challenging but it contributes to the mental and personal growth.
I do not know exactly where my path in the future leads, but I am sure, that there will be more crossroads than before.

As a person I am very out-going (what might not be seen during this year), I love the feeling of freedom that travelling gives me and everything related to aesthetic. I enjoy to cuddle all kinds of animals and I also like reading.

I graduated from the School of Economics and Business, majoring in International business and from the first day I started my undergraduate study I knew that IMB was the right programme for me. I always want to make the best out of every chance I get and I believe that this programme will bring many new challenges but will also open new doors and opportunities for my future career. I am a person of action and I always give my best in everything I do and that is what I intend to do with the IMB. I see myself as very committed with a lot of motivation to learn and I love adventures and am an all-time optimist. Combining the previous working experience with the knowledge gained by this programme I have no doubt I will succeed on my path, reach the desired goals and grow as a person.

It was a warm Monday morning on the 25th of May 1992 when I started bringing joy into the life of people around me. I share my birthday with Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, American tap dancer and actor, and Tatsutoshi Goto, Japanese professional wrestler, so it is not strange that I too am ambitious, hard-working and determined.

I’m people-oriented, said to be a creative person who thinks outside the box and likes to try new things – one of them will be choosing marketing as a major this year.

My name is Chunhui Gao, I’m from Jiangsu province China, which is a beautiful and affluent place. I studied finance in previous, but I prefer marketing, so I joined a listed company in china and worked in a marketing department for almost 5 years. I like travelling and challenges, that’s why I come here to finish my master degree in this economic faculty of Slovenia. To a country even no one has an idea where it is among my friends, but I chose here to experience a completely different world and culture. And I’m sure it will widen my field of vision and help me achieve more success in my future career.

Last but not least, I want to share one of my mottos with you, “set up a long-term goal, working hard for it, but don’t forget looking around along the road, finally it will lead you a wonderful and meaningful world”.

Coming from the land of cultural bliss, 21 year old with hope and gliss. Completed my bachelors in Psychology, don’t worry I don’t engage in mind reading typology. I believe writing is a free float of the poet, you can always see the customer the king of my poem. And that is the reason why I will embrace Marketing, it is so creative and sparkling and mindboggling. I love observing people, sometimes that is my steeple. This makes me good with tapping my feet, Salsa: bollywood and boogie wogie. I am so terrified by Math, because it puts me on the narrow path. Graphs: Numbers : Algebra :, omg I start losing my stamina. But I am here to fight, to defeat my fears and fright. To be a lady of ultimate substance, thus, I join the IMB family. NAMASTE to you from the INDIAN values!

While studying for my bachelor degree in International Relations at the faculty of Social Sciences in Ljubljana, I developed an interest in global policy, development, business and management. I believe that business plays a big part in this globalised world and therefore I decided to deepen my economic background at IMB. A year, which I spend studying abroad, was enough to shape my wish to work in an international environment in the future. I like to think of myself as a creative, optimistic and initiative person, who searches for the less obvious side of a solution. A daily chocolate intake is a must, nicely build bicycle lanes are a priority of urban architecture and music is an important way of expressing myself. I trust that a positive attitude, activism and dedication will help to overcome even the hardest challenges in life. IMB is only the first step.

I am 25-year-old world history and politics enthusiast. My other interests include movies (mainly horror and science fiction), fantasy books, science, technology, and wonders of nature. In fact, physics was my first choice of undergraduate studies, which, unfortunately, I have never been able to finish. After transferring to the Faculty of Business Studies in Ljubljana, where I have found my new passion and graduated with bachelor thesis titled “Effects of Labor Market Reforms on Labor Market Outcomes” I have decided to apply for IMB program. I saw it as a chance to widen my horizon and extend the opportunities for future employment. In addition to that, I love international environment, which is something I have found out as early as in high school, when I had opportunity to spend few weeks on exchange in Frankfurt and Budapest with youth of my age. During undergraduate studies I was on one-month-long student exchange in Trnava, Slovakia. I also had a chance to work as a Stagiaire to MEP in European Parliament in Brussels. I believe all things listed have equipped me with enough experience and willpower to successfully tackle any obstacle that may lie ahead in the year that follows. I know that many sacrifices will have to be made (for example, time and energy needed to go jogging on daily basis), but at the end, I am convinced, we (all my colleagues on IMB program as well) will come out stronger, due to mutual help and cooperation. What is more, I am still single, so ladies you can add me on Facebook. ;)

Hi ! My name is Florencia del Carmen Rentería Zepeda. I come from Toluca, Mexico. I consider myself as a really fortunate person as I have had lots of wonderful and once in a lifetime experiences, being part of IMB one of them. I love new challenges because they remind me how capable I can be when I really want to achieve something and when I work for it with all my effort and all my heart. So in this new adventure that I decided to "enrol to" I believe that hard work, perseverance, optimism and a good attitude will lead me to my expected results. I also see myself as a really enthusiastic and sociable person that enjoys meeting new people and making new friends. But what I cherish the most is travelling, running and spending time with the ones I love as this really fulfils my heart.

I am 24 year old and last year I graduated from Entrepreneurship at the University of Ljubljana, School of Economics and Business. My friends know me as a communicative and friendly guy, who always have time to do sports or just hang out. I always like to help people if they need me, because I think that from any work or person you can gain something, that can help you in the future. The reason why I applied for the IMB program is because finishing my master and asking myself if I could have done it better and harder at the end was not an option for me. In the future I am planning to work abroad, the best option for me would be to work in one of the BRIC countries. This environment on my opinion offers everyday challenges which make life interesting and also a lot of opportunities to grow as a person and as a professional.

I am a hard-working, driven and determined person that loves challenges more than anything. Since my early age I’ve been doing sports and I soon found my way to professional volleyball league and Slovenian national team with which I’ve travelled the world and got to know a lot about different cultures. I believe that sport has made me in to what I am today and gave me both the mindset and the necessary values that are needed in the today’s world of business: persistence, determination, never giving up, team-work capabilities and many more. I graduated from the English and Russian languages in Ljubljana, which I think is as a good starting point since I want to work abroad. I am especially fascinated with the Eastern European economies and markets, especially Russian, and would after finishing IMB love to work for one of the Slovenian companies that operate there.

Hello, my name is Arne. I come from Ljubljana and I have a different background than economics and business. I am a sportsperson, I like to read, surf on the Internet and have conversations about literally anything. I also like to go out, have fun and just enjoy life. When I was still an undergraduate, I realized that I want to work in a completely different field – business. However, I still graduated in history and philosophy and then worked for a year. Then I heard about IMB and I quickly decided to enroll because it was known as a very good business program. And when the program started it lived up to it's reputation. When I finish IMB, I would like to work abroad and after few years I would like to come back to Slovenia.
