An analysis of compulsive buying, avtorici: Eva Debelec, Mariia Parokonna (mentorica: prof.dr. Irena Vida)

Eva Debelec: Študij na Ekonomski fakulteti v Ljubljani nudi veliko možnosti za pridobivanje različnih izkušenj in poznanstev. Med drugim sem sama izkoristila možnost Erasmus izmenjave (Helsinki, Finska), ki je dopolnila moj pogled na svet in predvsem mnenje o Sloveniji. Lani sem uspešno zaključila podiplomski študij Mednarodno poslovanje v angleškem jeziku. Raziskovalno nalogo na temo kompulzivnega nakupovanja sva izvedli skupaj s kolegico Mariio, ki je ena od oseb, zaradi katerih so bila študijska leta znosnejša. Pomembno se mi zdi, da med študijem ne pozabiš na prijatelje in ohranjaš stike, ki ti lahko pridejo prav v vsakem življenjskem obdobju.

Mariia Parokonna: Prihajam iz Kijeva, Ukrajina in sem junija 2012 uspešno zaključila magistrski program Mednarodno poslovanje na Ekonomski fakulteti. Zelo mi je bilo všeč pisanje skupinske magistrske naloge, ki sva jo naredili skupaj s kolegico Evo in najino mentorico Ireno Vida. Bile smo odličen team. Za najino magistrsko nalogo sva prejeli Prešernovo nagrado. Zelo sem vesela, da jo lahko predstaviva tudi na ŠPK. Trenutno delam v mednarodnem podjetju na področju upravljanja dobavnega procesa. Poleg študija in službe igram badminton, se učim igrati na klavir in obiskujem plesne tečaje.

Overview of marketing research in the pharmaceutical industry among prescription drugs: the example of measuring loyalty, author: Helena Cerkovnik (mentor: dr. Matevž Rašković)

My name is Helena Cerkovnik and I come from Bohinj. During my studies at the Faculty of Economics in Ljubljana I became intrigued by market research and consequently started to work for a company specialising in market research for the pharmaceutical sector. As a project manager I gained extensive experience and knowledge regarding all phases of market research. I view constant improvement and new working approaches as challenges that allow me to perfect my knowledge on a regular basis. I like to spend my free time and recharge my batteries on my mountain bike, far away from the crowded city. However, at the moment, the little spare time I do have is dedicated to my three month old son who has given my life a new, extraordinary dimension.
