THE STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK
2018 – 2019
The chance to study MBA at University of New York in Prague was life-changing for me. I had an opportunity to learn from great professionals who have been working in top-management positions and come from worldwide known universities and multinationals such as INSEAD, Kellogg School of Management, Coca-Cola, Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, and others. I am also glad that I had the opportunity to meet people from all over the world and learn more about a variety of cultures.
MBA IN FINANCE
I have chosen major in Finance with the aim to become a part of corporate finance orasset management. Specifically, FP&A, Securities market, Private equity, or Venture capital. As is common for MBA programs, I have gained deep knowledge in terms of enterprise valuations, stock and bond valuations, financial ratios, balance sheets, income statements, cash flow statements, budgeting, general ledger and T-accounts, and many more. All of that with emphasis to make strategic decisions; not only calculate figures.
One of the most spectacular experiences was learning from very successful and humble professionals in education and business. I had the pleasure to meet the following experts in business: Claude Varley, former President of Coca-Cola in the south of France, Dipak C. Jain, former Dean of INSEAD and Kellogg School of Management, David Muir who worked for Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, and Samir Nassif, who is the former Dean of the American-European University in Monaco and has worked as general manager in the field of large construction projects in Saudi Arabia, United Kingdom, and France.
My dissertation title is “The online investing application that simplifies fundamental analysis to make company and stock valuation more accessible and easier to learn for individual investors”. The rationale behind is linked to reliable surveys which have found that individual investors attach the greatest importance to their instinct, information from newspapers or media, or even noise in the market when they assess stocks. Little importance is attached to the fundamental analysis. However, these findings are contrary to how large investment companies or Wall Street managers act. They see the fundamental analysis as the most important, and this approach is backed up with many academic papers.

Talking about style of education, I really appreciate the strong emphasis on critical thinking, strategic decision making, co-operation in groups of diverse people, self-reflection, and public speaking. Furthermore, analyses of real case studies, for example from Harvard Business Review, were really valuable.
“I have discovered one of my greatest passions at UNYP, which is lifelong learning and personal growth.”
I believe that personal growth and managerial skills are inter-connected. That is why I strongly focus on personal growth. Besides that, I focus on sleeping, diet, and a positive approach as all of that interlace with energy and mood. Regarding coaching, I like Tony Robbins and Marisa Peer.
