Top Managers Teach Students for Eighth Consecutive Year

For an eighth consecutive year the Bulgarian Business Leaders Forum launched the biggest educational project Business Master Classes. More than 100 students attended the official ceremony in the University of National and World Economy, who were greeted by the official guests - Ms. Maria Shishkova, BBLF Chairperson and Managing Partner of AIMS Human Capital for Bulgaria and Macedonia, Mr. Kircho Atanasov, Deputy Minister of Education and Science, Mr. Florian Fichtl, World Bank Country Manager for Bulgaria, Mr. Maxim Behar, CEO of M3 Communications and Dr. Yordan Bliznakov, Director of MCCD.


The Business Master Classes represent a unique gathering of today's leaders with tomorrow ones. During the professional training the managers share real business cases, present latest trends in their field of work and discuss burning issues with the young people. The main project goal is to shorten the distance between the theoretical preparation in the university and the real business practice by meeting the students with prominent professionals. This year classes on the following topics will be held in Sofia: Pharmacy and Healthcare, Information and Communications Technology, Consultancy and EU Perspectives, Management, Media, PR and Advertising and Tourism and Hospitality. Top managers will teach students also in Varna and Burgas in the field of management.


"The Business Master Classes give incredible opportunity to the students to face the real business, to receive practical advise how to build their career and last, but not least to use the chance to go on a traineeship or start a job available after each class," said Ms. Maria Shishkova, BBLF Chairperson.


The project is realized in cooperation with AIMS Human Capital and with the general sponsorship of IBM Bulgaria, also with the technical support of Microsoft Bulgaria and the financial one of  Intracom, McDonald's Bulgaria, ITCE, Porsche Leasing, AIMS, Sofiyska voda, BACB, BNP Paribas, М3 Communications, AstraZeneca, ESRI Bulgaria.
