SEARCH PROGRAMMES & INSTITUTIONS

Undergraduate student at Faculty of Economics, University of Ljubljana

FELU is considered to be one of the best institutions in Europe. It is known by its strong educational program. When I came here, I was surprised by how practice and theory are closely correlated: we have a lecture, and immediately we try to implement the knowledge we got. For example, we read a case study (majority of them are made by Harvard), and then we have a simulation of a situation. The aim is to understand how all explained procedures are functioning in the real world. For the same purposes we have a lot of projects: to create and elaborate a prototype of a new product or service, conducting a deep investigation of external and internal forces of the chosen market, to write a business plan and to present the final project. Studying in English also improves the language and communication skills.

My biggest challenge of studying here was the first semester, when I still wasn’t fluent in English due to the lack of practice. However, I was not the only one who faced such problem, and together with my group-mates we were trying to overpass it. I think that we succeeded. My biggest opportunity of studying here was also the first semester, when I suddenly needed to work on team projects and to present them. I never considered myself to be a good speaker, but when you have to accomplish something, you don’t have time for your fears – you are just going and doing it. “Make it or break it”. I cannot say that studying at FELU is difficult for me, but it requires deep understanding of each subject and a lot of effort. For me it is a mark of a high level of education.
