"Student Business Conference is an interesting event. Similar events on other universities in the world are actually really rare. Tries to combine the business relevance with academic performance, while allowing students contact with the business world in terms of connections with business representatives, who also read and evaluate their work. Winning at the SBC in particular adds motivation to continue working forward and contribute to self-esteem in the sense that each objective can be achieved, if only enough we make an effort. For me, it was the SBC even more special because of exceptional teams with which we competed as working in the conference and the whole experience brought as even closer together. "

“Happy B-day ŠPK, It has been a fantastic experience for me. For the first time, I have had the opportunity to present to a non-class audience. I firmly believe that helped me to further develop my presentation skills and boosted confidence in public speaking. Moreover, I was proud to get an academic and professional acknowledgement by winning within the assigned category. I see this as a great opportunity for prosperous students to invest in their academic portfolio and I must admit it looks great in CV as well :) Not only participating, but also attending the ŠPK conference is a meaningful experience, since the audience gets a very concise overview of their fields of interest and its innovative concept. Nevertheless, it is inspiring and the atmosphere there is really pleasant. In such an environment, it is easy to do some mingling with professional audience, international students and also colleagues from different professional fields, which gives the ŠPK conference high social capital building potential. Congrats for excellent work, dear ŠPK team, and wishing you many successful years to come!”

"My application to SBC was a logical consequence of well-prepared master thesis, in which it was, invested a lot of effort and desire for further proving and confirmation. The chance to present my work at SBC, in front of representatives from the business world, public institutions, economic faculty and other participants, it was very challenging. With the aforementioned belief that with the preparation of master's thesis I have done quality work, partly because of the technical cooperation and support of some colleagues in the company at that time, in which I'm still employed, I could tackle the competition with confidence and believe in victory. Participation and presentation at the conference it has been a great pleasure because of the event itself, as it participated exciting and successful guests. I also remember the final awards ceremony and hanging out, which was well organized and very beautiful event. The victory brought me confirmation and it was an incentive and motivation for further career development. In addition, it also provides better status among colleagues, opportunity to make new contacts which will ultimately help you in opening up new business opportunities, which is especially important at the beginning of the career.

"At the SBC 2010 I and my colleague won the prizes for the best business plan and best presentation of the conference. Both won awards represent an excellent addition to my CV, and the won award was the beginning of an independent entrepreneurial path and my own company, which is today part of reality. I strongly recommend to all students to take part at SBC, because you will step out of the crowd, listen to great presentations, and gain new knowledge; you will get opportunity to socialize and an opportunity for networking. SBC is a really excellent complement to the academic activities. "

Seems to me that the SBC brand really means something in the business world and that it’s valid only grow and grow, which confirms the fact that this year is the 10th anniversary of SBC. For example I last “exploit” SBC a year before on interviews for a job at KBC group, where I am currently employed as an internal consultant.

"Student Business Conference is a way to stand out from the crowd of students at the School of Economics and Business and to show your best work. SBC is an event that connects students and potential employers, as well as ambitious students which want to have more from their studies, than just learning and sitting in the benches. As a student you find out what kind of interesting ideas your classmates have, while companies at the conference can find an interesting set of potential employees. Personally for me, the conference was very beautiful experience, where I made some business and friendship relations which will last forever.
