When women decide to pursue an MBA degree as the next step in their career and personal development they mostly juggle with questions on how to balance their job, studying and family.
The stakes are high and decision is sometimes hard. The most important question is: Will they really gain that extra set of much needed knowledge and skills in order to better cope with ambiguities and intricacies of business life?
Some might think that reading a few books and spending some time on social networking is an easy substitute for not attending MBA studies, which would end in saving time and money.
Time invested in an MBA study demands a great deal of time management, but it can also be a very exciting and transforming time in their lives.
FELU MBA women for women is a blog series where we present inspiring stories of women who have finished the FELU MBA programme with the aim to inspire other women to develop themselves constantly in order to become great inspiring leaders.
Nela Bučević, MBA
Human Resources Manager BU Adria
Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company
As an individual and professional, how do you operate today (after your MBA degree)? What’s different from before, during the MBA course?
After the MBA programme, I have definitely acquired additional knowledge. Also, it encouraged me to discuss with my colleagues topics that were until then out of my area of responsibility. By gaining deeper knowledge, I have also acquired a deeper understanding of business in general. I feel more comfortable to lead strategic discussions and make decisions in all areas of the company.

What is the best business/ or any decision you’ve ever made?
One of my best decisions that I made is to work and study at the same time. This brought me a lot of practical knowledge and enriched my studies tremendously. I was an early bird – I had much more time, focus and energy to strive for and work on what I have achieved so far.

Jerca Pavlič, MBA
PR and Communication specialist
Why did a PR and communication specialist decided to pursue MBA?
In today’s highly competitive business environment, I believe we all have to be open-minded and continuously learn and gain new knowledge and skills in different areas. Education is the most important value for me and I always strive to be the best and learn as much as I can. As a PR and communication specialist, I was good at writing, communicating and speaking in front of an audience, but I felt I have to broaden my horizons in areas of economy and finance, as well as develop my leadership skills and capacities. When the opportunity to enrol in the MBA program at the University of Economics presented itself, I immediately knew that this was the right decision for me and it is going to be a turning point in my academic and professional career.
Msc. Helena Mazi Golob, MBA
HR director, Elektronabava
At the time when you attended the MBA program you were a principal at the primary school, a PhD candidate, a wife and a mom of four. How did you successfully manage all this?
We have many roles in our lives and each role requires sufficient amount of time. There are four keys to success: the first one is setting clear goals, the second one is identification and elimination of all bad habits and thieves of time out of your life, the third one is tight schedule and the fourth one is focus on what you do. Simple, right?
