MBA SEB students and Vatroslav Škare

Mentoring MBA students at the University of Ljubljana, SEB

MBA students at the University of Ljubljana, School of Economics and Business (SEB) are engaged in the “Business Consulting Project”, a part of the final assessment at the program. This Autumn I mentored the team that conducted a project for the medical marketing company Medis.

There is an old management joke: “Those who can, do. Those who can’t, teach.” 🙂 Despite the stereotypes, I believe that these two roles are strongly interconnected. I find the experience from business practice as an important success factor in teaching. Therefore, I am always open to collaborations that bring theory and practice together.

“Business Consulting Project” at the SEB MBA is a great way to do exactly that. I worked with five excellent MBA students: Ksenija Frelih, Miha Granfola, Ljiljana Lučić, Zoran Mećava and Urška Sušnik. They developed an outstanding output for the real business challenge, defined by Medis, a medical marketing company. Congratulations!

A big thanks goes to Alma Lieber, MBA Programme manager, who invited me to join the pool of team mentors, based on my previous consulting experiences in the pharma industry.
