Class presidents about their MBA journeys
Ksenija Frelih, Class president 2018/2019
1. Best MBA lesson learned?
MBA is a unique experience because it gives you two years to hit the pause button to work on yourself and your career. This is a great time to take a step back and to not only reflect on what you’ve done, but where you want to go. But reflection isn’t something that happens naturally for most. Because life can get busy, it can be difficult to find the time. And because the lack of time, you have to reassess and prioritise every aspect in your life.
2. If you would be an MBA professor, what would you teach?
I would love to give it a shot at Project and Operations management, since it is my expertise and my line of business. But would also be thrilled to step into shoes of Strategic Management.
3. Your best MBA memory?
So many memories. However, the best memory or experience was that the entire class was a unity of one. We celebrated, helped and encouraged each other in good or bad.
4. Best MBA class?
The eye opener for me was Global Business Environment. A true game changer. Understanding the consequences and the causalities of economy through out recent decades.
5. What would be your advice to future MBAs?
Benchmark Against Yourself—Not Your Peers. It is critical that you benchmark your success based on where you were when you when started your program, rather than measuring yourself against your peers. The learning curve and baseline are completely unique for each individual. Keeping this in mind will allow you to appreciate what you have learned, how much you have grown, and make sure you are prepared for your future career.
It will be a life changer, believe me.
