At ZSEM I gained knowledge and made many acquaintances

Ivan PinterYoung Croatian entrepreneur Ivan Pinter talks about the values he has gained at the Zagreb School of Economics and Management, and how he is using them in his career.

Ivan Pinter is a 34-year-old organizational culture expert at Kaufland, who during his interview impressed me not only with his intelligence, but also with his positive spirit and friendly aura. When I complimented him on it, he told me that this was only one of the things that he developed in ZSEM’s stimulating environment and shared with me the other “essential values” that he acquired at the Zagreb School of Economics and Management.

Let’s go back to the beginning – When and why did you decide to enroll at ZSEM?

After several years of analyzing and looking for the right education, I realized that ZSEM was the best choice for my further development. The experience of studying at ZSEM has helped me both in my personal and professional development.

How did ZSEM help you in developing your own career?

In addition to the knowledge I gained, the most valuable thing are the acquaintances I made, some of which developed into great friendships. I can say that my MBA is the ticket to a “new world” and gives me more opportunities and career choices.

Are you now doing your dream job or are you still working towards your goal?

The MBA is part of the reason why I landed my current job, with which I am very pleased. I believe that I am on the right path to realizing my potential and I really enjoy it.

To whom would you recommend studying at ZSEM and why?

I would certainly recommend ZSEM to anyone who wants to develop and progress, to meet new people, all in being on top with the needs of today’s labor market.

Do you have a piece of advice for future ZSEM students?

I would recommend future ZSEM students to be brave and determined, but also to enjoy the ride and not be afraid of mistakes. As soon as we understand that we cannot win all “matches”, things become easier.
