Students’ testimonials:

Jari Eeckhout, Belgium

“In the first week, we learned how to do business through creative workshops – It was great! In the second week, we were challenged with real business cases in successful companies. I felt that the group was in a particularly creative and resourceful mood at all times, resulting in magnificent ideas that may otherwise never have been unearthed. The afternoons and weekends were reserved to visit some of Slovenia’s landmarks.

Now, 2 years later, I still look back to that period as having been a significant course changer of who I am and what I do today.”

Partners’ testimonials:

Uroš Rošer – Assistant General Manager, MIK Celje

“With organizing a Bootcamp, GEA College ensured an interesting experience for students – participants, as well as for us as a company. We spent a creative day together when students solved practical challenges on the theoretical basis. In my opinion, case study learning is the most successful form of study because it forces students directly to think about concrete situations and relates theory to actual situations while raising the level of general knowledge and enabling to overcome the obstacles of public appearances. ”

Uroš Rosa – CEO, Akrapovič“

“We were positively surprised by the solutions the students came up within such a short time. The challenge of entering the South American market that we presented to the students was far from easy, and it triggered a real discussion on the hurdles the company is tackling in expanding its sales network on other continents.”

Marko Lotrič – General Manager, Lotrič Metrology

“We are always pleased when we are invited to participate in the project like this. In each project, we were impressed by the results, and again, we were thrilled by the excellent proposals to our case study.

The best mentors and the best students gave us new, innovative ideas about how to manage human resources.”
