Financial Analysis Senior Manager at Dell
I graduated EUBA almost 20 years ago in time when our country was still in process of change to democratic system. At that time there were not many job opportunities especially in global companies. This school gave me flexibility to study and start my career in one of few international companies (Volkswagen) at the same time. It also enabled future opportunities to grow my career in other global big companies that came to country later (Lear Corporation, Schindler and now Dell). It also gave me opportunity to meet most talented peers from the whole country. Some of them become my colleagues later. This school gave me full range of finance related education which basically mean that I could start in any area of finance either in private or public sector (tax, accounting, FP&A, banking, Ministry of Finance etc.). I have been with Dell for 13 years and there is intense cooperation between Dell and EUBA. I personally was delivering lecture to EUBA students to help them connect their studies with real business environment. I think EUBA is best economic school in our country and I would recommend it to any student that would like to gain strong education in Economics.
