Priem_Studenti__i_Menadjeri_01The President of the Republic of Macedonia, Dr. Gjorge Ivanov, hosted today a reception for undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral studies students who, within the frames of the project "A day with Macedonian Leading CEOs", were selected to spend a working day with managers of successful companies in Republic of Macedonia. The project is implemented under the auspices of the President of the Republic of Macedonia, Dr. Gjorge Ivanov, organized by the Council of Foreign Investors at the Economic Chamber of Macedonia.

The program is to be implemented in the period from May to August 2018, and among the successful managers to implement the training are Stefan Peter from EVN Macedonia, Ilina Jakimovska from "Comfy Angel", Wolfgang Maringer from "Arcelor Mittal", Vladimir Kosijerod from "Brewery Skopje"and Avram Stojcevski from "Van Hool".

The Chairman of the Board of EVN Macedonia, Mr. Stefan Peter, expressed expectation for full motivation and involvement of the students by asking all possible questions, which would also be a challenge for the managers.

"This is an incredible program that is being implemented for the first time in Macedonia. The goal is that our domestic students do not have to go outside the country to learn different managerial skills and gain experience, but can stay at home in Macedonia and learn from the CEOs coming from abroad", Mr. Peter said.

Some of the selected participants expressed their satisfaction that they will be part of the project, which will give them a direct opportunity to gain new experiences and thus receive answers to some questions in the areas of their interest.

This is a great benefit; first of all I see myself here, in Macedonia, it is motivating when we get immediately acquainted with the work of people who have a great contribution here, Marija Andonova said.

I can say that the School for Young Leaders I participated in in 2015 was the reason and motive to get to the position I am now. This project would have been of great importance to me, because I could improve my skills, be better in my profession and the position I am at now, said Vanesa Vasilevska.

Main goal of the project is for the selected students to be directly acquainted with the working day of a top manager, to penetrate into the processes of running a company, to gain new knowledge, practical experiences and skills that will contribute to the development of their entrepreneurial spirit.
